We are planning to award projects worth around Rs 2.25 tn in FY22

- Dr. Sukhbir Singh Sandhu, Chairman, NHAI

Despite losing the best construction months to Covid-19 related lockdown, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) constructed 4,192 km of National Highways in FY2020-21. Notably, this is the highest ever highway construction achieved in a financial year by NHAI. At 4,192 km, the pace of construction increased by 5 per cent in 2020-21 as compared to 3,979 km constructed in 2019-20 and 24 per cent more than 3,380 km constructed in 2018-19. Considering construction in lane kilometer, NHAI has constructed 18,500 lane km during FY2020-21, tallying to over 50 lane km per day. This is 40 per cent more than the 13,243 lane km constructed in FY2019-20 and 91 per cent more in comparison to the 9,684 km constructed in FY2018-19.

How was this achieved?
“During the first wave of Covid-19 last year, NHAI remained persistent in working diligently towards creating National Highway infrastructure. We have successfully overcome the challenges by the pandemic and related situation in 2020. Like last year, we are fully committed to complete our projects in a time bound manner with least impact due to the pandemic and subsequent situation,” says Dr. Sukhbir Singh Sandhu, Chairman, NHAI. He shares more on NHAI’s plans and targets in an exclusive interview with SERAPHINA D’SOUZA.
