Looks like there is massive investment planned for Indian road construction

The Indian Government has set out plans to award highway projects worth at least US$8.84 billion during the next fiscal year. These projects will be offered under the hybrid annuity model, according to a report in the Economic Times. KPMG has stated that some 21 projects for a total of 1,500km and worth close to a third of that sum will be granted by the Indian Government in the current fiscal year.

India’s Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has sought budgetary support from the Ministry of Finance and will grant a major tranche of highway projects in the next fiscal year. Under the new model, around 6,000km of highway projects will be granted by the Indian Government.

In India’s Karnataka State, work is due to commence on the upgrade of a highway connecting Mysuru and Bengaluru to six lanes. Construction work is expected to start and should be complete by 2018, with an estimated cost of US$515.65 million. This will most likely be carried out under a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) basis. The work on the 117km route will cut congestion and help reduce travel times.

How pathetic is the service road is being maintained by toll operator!!

Near Kumarapalayam







Kaveri bridge - new one is 3lane and old one is 2 lane!






Regular day traffic on this NH.. needs to be 6-lanes and access controlled before it goes to grid lock!



This ramp was never laid by the toll road operator!



LA for service road, but never got laid

25,000KM of road under central gvt national highway department is dual carriage way. There would be another 10,000KM of road under state gvt as dual carriage way.

Look at how close the collapsed flyover in Kolkata comes to its surroundings. How does something like this get approved in such an historic district?

Delhi - Noida Direct Flyway

No toll tax on DND flyway, rules Allahabad high court

The ride between Delhi and Noida on the DND Flyway became toll-free after the Allahabad high court on Wednesday ordered the private concessionaire to stop collecting user-fee from commuters, saying they were being illegally taxed.

The court said the company had recovered returns, interests and cost incurred on the construction of the DND Flyway and, therefore, they are not entitled to receive any more money.
Full report: http://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi/...peWxb4JZP.html

An interesting ruling. I wonder though, how the concession company is supposed to fund maintenance and daily operations if they can't collect tolls. Or maybe they should hand the expressway over to the state.

Agra - Lucknow Expressway

The 302 kilometer long Agra - Lucknow Expressway was inaugurated today. They had a ceremony with fighter jets taking off from the expressway.

It is the longest expressway in India. One can now travel from Delhi to Lucknow by expressway.
