By the middle of February, it is anticipated that the Outer Ring Road’s Jamtha (Wardha Road) to Gondkhairi (Amravati Road) section will be finished. According to Ashish Asati, a regional officer for the National Highways Authority of India, this 11-kilometer length is more than 90% finished (NHAI).
Public Works Department (PWD) constructed this section of Outer Ring Road as a two-lane road more than ten years ago. The NHAI received it to four-lane it.
However, NHAI missed the deadline because the original contractor abandoned the project midway through. Furthermore, the second contractor was unable to adhere to the new deadline. There is some hop now. According to Asati, the Oute Ring Road’s under-construction section had been split into two packages.
33 kilometres long and 531 crore rupees in cost, the package ran from Jamtha to a location past Gondkhairi.
Package II, which cost Rs. 63 crore and was 28 km long and roughly 52% complete, was almost 70% finished. Package I was anticipated to be finished by the end of June 2023, while Package II was anticipated to be ready for traffic by the end of September. The highway is being constructed using a hybrid annuity mechanism (HAM), and the NHAI headquarters will select a toll collector.
