NHAI blames TN for delay


CHENNAI 
Seven road widening works valued over Rs. 3,000 crore are moving at a snail’s pace

As many as seven ongoing important road widening works valued over Rs.3,000 crore were moving at a snail’s pace in Tamil Nadu due to lack of support from the State government, said National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) officials on Friday.

Disclosing this to Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Oscar Fernandes, Minister of State Sarvey Sathyanarayana and NHAI Chairman R.P. Singh while reviewing all the NHAI projects in the State, the officials said the projects could be expedited at the earliest with the help of State Mining Department.

According to them, the NHAI was trusted with the widening of road projects such as Tindivanam-Krishnagiri, Dindigul-Theni-Kumili, Chennai-Tirupati, Chennai-Wallajahpet, Hosur-Krishnagiri and Tiruchi-Karaikudi. The completion of the project ranged from 15 per cent to 80 per cent due to non-availability of building material such as earth for filling roads.
