 Maintenance of NHs 

In order to increase the private participation in highway sector, auctioning operation and maintenance of National Highways to domestic and international players is one of the options. This option is at conceptual stage. 

This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shri Pon Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.

Vadodara-Mumbai Express Highway 

Vadodadra-Mumbai Expressway is proposed to be executed on BOT (Toll) basis under DBFO pattern under NHDP -VI. 

Detailed project report (DPR) for the Vadodadra-Mumbai Express-Highway was submitted in 2012. Alignment of the project has been finalized. Total expenditure incurred towards preparation of DPR and land acquisition till 30th June 2015 is Rs. 19.13 Cr. 

Various representations have been received by NHAI opposing the land acquisition and requesting for change of alignment. 

The representation have been examined/reviewed and modification in alignment/DPR is done where ever feasible and technically justified. In view of this, date of completion cannot be indicated at this stage. 

At present, land acquisition processes is under progress which is delayed due to opposition of land owners in Gujarat especially in Navasari, Valsad districts and also in Palghar & Thane districts in Maharashtra.
