The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has invited bids for the construction of a six-lane elevated corridor in Goa. The corridor will be built on the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) model and will stretch from 508.000 km to 513.150 km. It will also include approach roads on NH-66. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 474.64 crore and it is expected to be completed within 24 months. A maintenance period of 10 years will follow the construction phase.

Interested entities can submit their bids before the deadline of June 22, 2023. The project aims to improve connectivity and transportation infrastructure in Goa, which will boost the state's economic growth.
