new Delhi. Preparations are on to cancel the tender for one phase of the Delhi-Saharanpur Economic Corridor. Knowing the reason for this, you will also be happy. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is going to cancel its tender because the progress report of the construction company is not according to the set standards, that is, the work has not been done as much as it should, which will help the company’s work. It shows negligence, so the Ministry of Road Transport has decided to take action against the company.
The work of Delhi-Dehradun Economic Corridor is being done in four phases. The first phase is from Akshardham to Delhi Border Sonia Vihar, second from Sonia Vihar to Eastern Peripheral, third from Eastern Peripheral to Baghpat and fourth from Baghpat to Saharanpur. The National Highways Authority of India had given the work from the Delhi border to the Eastern Peripheral Highway to a Hyderabad-based company.
The work was to be done 10 percent and only one percent could be done
The company started work in March 2021 but the copy of the work is very slow. The company was supposed to complete 10 per cent of the work till now but till now only 1 per cent of the work has been done. According to the NHAI, the economy corridor running from the Delhi border to the Eastern Peripheral will have about 12 km of elevated road in the construction of 17 km long. This corridor will be 25 meters wide. The work of the Economic Corridor to be done in four phases is to be completed by the year 2023.
NHAI awaits reply
AHAI project director Arvind Kumar said that the company, which is constructing the elevated road from Delhi border to EPA, has been given a notice to cancel the tender after seeing the progress of the work. Action will be taken against the company on receipt of reply.
Travel time between Delhi to Saharanpur and Dehradun will take less
Once the corridor is constructed, the travel time between Delhi to Saharanpur and Dehradun will be reduced. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid the foundation stone of this ambitious project. National Highway 709B 155 km long corridor is being built from Delhi to Saharanpur under Bharatmala project. The construction work of 140.55 km corridor from UP border to Saharanpur is going on in four phases.
