Cabinet nod for 4 laning of INR 2,776-cr road project

08 June 2017 | New Delhi


The government today approved four-laning of a road stretch to be developed at an estimated cost of INR 2,776-crore in Himachal Pradesh.

The decision on the same was taken at the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said in a statement, the CCEA has given its "approval for development of 4 laning from 'end of Pandoh Bypass to Takoli' section of National Highway (NH)-21 in Himachal Pradesh.” It said that

The project will help in expediting the improvement of infrastructure in Himachal Pradesh and in reducing the time and cost of travel for traffic, particularly heavy traffic, plying from 'end of Pandoh Bypass to Takoli' section.

It said that "The cost is estimated to be INR 2,775.93 crore, including cost of land acquisition, resettlement and rehabilitation and other pre-construction activities. The total length of the road to be developed is approximately 19 kilometer (km).”

It said that "This work will be done under the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Phase IV B on Hybrid Annuity Mode.”

The development of this stretch will also help in uplifting the socio-economic condition of this region in the state. It would also increase employment potential for local labourers for project activities. It has been estimated that a total number of 4,076 mandays are required for construction of 1 kilometer of highway.
