MoRTH engages MIVs for NH quality inspections

01 Aug 2022

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has reportedly engaged the services of Mobile Inspection Vans (MIVs) for the quality inspection of national highways through Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) in four states – Gujarat, Rajasthan, Odisha and Karnataka – on pilot basis. This is part of the ministry’s commitment towards constructing national highways with global quality standards. Use of these MIVs will reportedly augment the existing quality control and quality acceptance systems of NH works by introducing a more proactive approach for identifying issues related to quality.

Quarterly, 2,000 km of NH projects will be inspected in each state using these MIVs. Inspections would be conducted in various projects being implemented by NHAI, NHIDCL, State PWDs and other executing agencies of MoRTH. The contract agreement for Gujarat was signed today. Contract agreement for Rajasthan, Odisha and Karnataka will be signed soon. More such vans shall be engaged in other states in future, as per reports.
