NHAI kick starting big ticket road infra projects

road infra projects
NHAI is launching 50-60% of the big-ticket expressway and highway projects where labor force is stationed in camps at project sites. The projects include the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, Amritsar-Jamnagar Expressway, Dwarka Expressway and Trans Haryana North-South Expressway. The construction work on these projects would resume shortly, Since steel plants and refineries are functioning, there should be no concern regarding availability of raw materials, and there are enough stocks in the pipeline and on project sites for work to resume. In fact, the government is prioritizing projects that are linked with industrial clusters to ensure efficient management of the supply chain. Two key areas where the government is looking at is restarting work on highway projects depending on their economic importance and, second, where laborers are present at the project site. Once the cement manufacturing companies see an uptick in construction activity, they should also get back in action. It may be recalled that the guidelines issued by the home ministry allowed work to resume on construction projects within the limits of municipal corporations and municipalities where workers are available on site and no workers are required to be brought from outside. The government is banking on infrastructure projects to kick-start the economic activity in the country.
