6,604 km of roads completed till Feb

10 March 2017 | New Delhi


An official release said that the target of construction of National Highways (NH) is 15,000 kilometer (km), of which 6,604 km have been completed till February in the current financial year 2016-17.

The slow speed of construction of NH is mainly due to land acquisition, utility shifting, non-availability of soil/aggregates, poor performance of contractors, environment/forest/wildlife clearance, road overbridge and road under-bridge issue with the Railways, public agitation for additional facilities, arbitration and contractual disputes with contractors, among others.

The Ministry has empanelled national-level project monitors for monitoring of critical and languishing highway projects across the country.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways Pon Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
