The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will shortly take over the Jaipur ring road project, lying incomplete for the last five years, to construct the 47-km-long road connecting outer areas of the capital city with highways and providing an alternative route to the city residents with decongestion of interior roads.
Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, who was on a visit to Dausa district on Friday, said the work would be completed in 15 months. A committee will be constituted to terminate an existing tripartite contract for the ring road's construction in order to avoid legal hassles.
Work will also start this year on a super expressway between Jaipur and Delhi, which will significantly reduce the travel time between the two cities.
Mr. Gadkari said the controlled-access expressway, to be developed between Kherki Daula at Gurugram in Haryana and Chandwaji near Jaipur, would cover a distance of 200 km. He asked the Rajasthan government to complete land acquisition process and give approval to the alignment cleared by the Haryana government.
