    NHAI fast tracks Rs. 1,065.51-cr project

    highway widening project
    National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to implement Rs 1,065.51 crore Butibori-Wardha highway widening project. The proposed four-laning of 59-km stretch between Butibori and Wardha, is bypassing Kelzar due to densely built-up areas and local traffic movement along the stretch it has to demolish many concrete structures and it is difficult to acquire enough land. The Butibori-Wardha patch is now part of the 523-km NH-361 which starts at Tuljapur and passes through Ausa, Latur, Chakur, Sirur, Ahmedpur, Loha, Nanded, Hadgaon, Umarkhed, Mahagaon, Arni, Yavatmal, Kalamb, Deoli, Wardha and ends at Butibori on NH-44. The project has been awarded to Dilip Buildcon and the contractor has already started work on non-forest land from Butibori side. Of the 375 hectares needed for road widening between Butibori and Wardha, 26.26 hectares is forest land as the project crosses Dham River at Pavnar and Selu and many streams and canals. The detailed project report (DPR) has identified two alternatives for bypassing Kelzar. One is a 3-km bypass from southern side of existing alignment through cultivated and barren lands. The second one passes through wetlands over on north side due to presence of left bank canal of Bor reservoir whereby NHAI feels second is not feasible as the road would have to cross the canal twice and hence it is choosing the first one, he added.
