NHAI allots Rs 600 cr to repair Panipat-Jalandhar highway

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will spend approximately Rs 600 crore to fix the highway's construction flaws.

On the 291 km stretch of NH-44 between Panipat and Jalandhar, officials from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) have found construction flaws in drainage, entry and exit points, and other structures on service lanes.

According to information, the NHAI spent nearly Rs 300 crore on bituminous concrete overlays, gantries, signage, and other maintenance work last year.

A senior official of the NHAI in Ambala told the media that in May 2008, a company was given the task of six-laning the 291 km stretch of NH-44 between Panipat and Jalandhar. Work on the project began in May 2009 and was supposed to be finished in November 2011, but it was nine years late. The NHAI had terminated the company's contract due to poor highway maintenance, and it has been maintaining it directly through its agencies for nearly a year.

Virendra Singh, project director, National Highways Authority of India, Ambala told the media that commuters have been inconvenienced greatly in the last nine years as a result of construction delays. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has made significant progress in improving the highway's condition.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) was established in 1988 by an Act of Parliament and is managed by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) was established as a central authority to develop, maintain, and manage the National Highways entrusted to it by the Indian government.
