The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has floated a tender for the construction of a 22.5-km long stretch, which is a part of the Phase-II of the Ambala ring road project aimed at decongesting the traffic scenario in and around Ambala city. The total length of the project is about 55 km, of which 15-km four-lane stretch already exists from Balana to Sadopur village, and a 40-km stretch is to be constructed in a phased manner in two phases. The road will start near Sadopur village on the Ambala-Chandigarh highway and link the Ambala-Shamli highway connecting Ambala-Saha highway at Khudda Kalan, and further linking the Delhi-Amritsar highway at Mohra village. It will further connect to the Ambala-Hisar highway at Balana village.
The tender for the Phase-I project has already been awarded and in this phase, an 18-km long stretch, covering 13 villages, will be constructed, for which work is expected to start very shortly. Among others, there will be four interchanges, two flyovers and railway overbridges (ROBs) each, and 51 underpasses to access the highway. Two major bridges, two minors, two ROBs and three flyovers will be constructed on the ring road, touching five national highways and a toll plaza will also be built between Mohri and Dukheri villages.
