IRB awarded for widening of NH 66 from Kundapur to the Goa border

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has awarded IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd for widening the 189-km stretch on the National Highway 66 from Kundapur to the Goa border.

The NHAI had proposed to widen the stretch of the highway into four lanes under phase IV of the National Highways Development Project (NHDP).

The cost of the project would be approximately Rs. 2,400 crore. The construction period would be 910 days. “The company has sought Rs. 536.22 crore as viability gap funding from the NHAI.

A main feature of the project was an elevated highway of 350-metre length and 12-metre width which would come up at Maravanthe, a tourist spot, where the existing highway passed through a narrow stretch between the sea and the river. The highway would be built along the river at about a metre height from the existing highway.

14 major bridges, 41 minor bridges, six road-over-bridges (RoBs), and three road-under-bridges (RuBs) would be built.

Four tunnels and an equal number of flyovers would be built. There would be 53 bus bays and four truck bays.

The Government would have to acquire 260 hectares of private land in 66 villages and 122 hectares of forestland for completing the project.
