NHAI invites bids for Delhi-Katra expressway phase-2

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has invited e-tenders for the Delhi Katra Expressway phase 2 stretch in District Pathankot, Punjab with a total length of 97 km costing Rs 5,495 crore.

The distance between Delhi to Amritsar/Katra will be reduced by approximately 40 km. The expressway will enable the passengers to travel from Delhi to Amritsar within four hours and Delhi to Katra within six hours. The construction is targeted to be achieved by 2024.

It will not only accommodate the smallest connectivity to religious cities of Amritsar and Katra but also provides the shortest connectivity to industrial and economic hubs.

The expressway will be an access-controlled expressway with a pay-as-analyzing closed tolling idea and an environmentally friendly expressway with a proposed tree cover of around 10 lakh trees to enhance carbon footprints.

Entrance and departure from the Expressway are planned at selected interchanges on all National Highways and major State Highways joining the expressway. For the convenience of the road user, 40 Way Side Amenities including seven in Jammu and Kashmir will be created.

NHAI has asked for active cooperation from the UT administration for quick completion of land acquisition and grant of other legal approvals. NHAI also appealed to all sections of the society for their cooperation for the project.
