Ashoka Buildcon and Ramky Infrastructure have bagged Rs 1,646 crore contracts for building two highway projects in Jharkhand from National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).
The projects have been awarded to Ashoka Buildcon which will widen a road stretch on NH 32 at a cost of Rs 946 crore. The other project has been awarded to Ramky Infrastructure for four-laning Barhi-Hazaribag stretch on NH 33 at a cost of Rs 700 crore.
“The development of 57 km long Govindpur-Chas-Jharkhand/West Bengal Border section involves four-laning of 38 km and 2- laning with paved shoulder of 19 km of national highway. The scheduled time of completion is two years, it said and added that the project will have four railway-over-bridges, 1 railway-under-bridge and 5 km long bypass for Maheshpur town,” said Ministry of Road Transport & Highways in its official statement.
The project corridor passes through two important industrial districts i.e. coal mining hub of Dhanbad and steel city of Bokaro. This is a crucial link for inter-state connectivity between Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha and other parts of the country. Going ahead, both the projects would be undertaken on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) mode.
