    NHAI launches Rs.8,000 cr highway in Himachal

    National Highway Authority of India
    The state government in Himachal Pradesh is all set to start land acquisition process for the 219 km long Pathankot-Mandi four-lane project, which has already been cleared by the central government and NHAI and a letter of intent was also submitted to the state government recently. For the project entailing a staggering investment of Rs.8,000 crore, NHAI has asked the state government to complete the land acquisition exercise under a time-bound plan so that the project could be completed on time. The state authorities in turn has directed the Deputy Commissioners of Kangra and Mandi districts to form teams of revenue officials for the purpose to speed up land acquisition process. The NHAI will float global tenders in May and the construction work is likely to start later this year. Since road alignment has completely changed between Pathankot and Joginder Nagar, the land will be acquired for the construction of eight bypasses, three tunnels, three railway over bridges and three flyovers, which would take six to nine months. During this period, the NHAI will finalize the tendering process and allocation of jobs. Under the new road alignment, the distance between Pathankot and Mandi will be reduced from 219 km to 171 km. A major chunk of land is required for the construction of a 33 km bypass between Paror and Chauntra along the Pathankot-Jogindernagar railway line, where more than 10 bridges will be constructed. Besides, the state government will also have to seek approval for acquiring land for the construction of a 5,100 m tunnel between Kotla and Draman, a 7,200 m tunnel between Mataur and Kachhyari and also another 3,500 m tunnel between Bijni and Mandi, claimed NHAI sources.
