The pace of maintenance work on the Delhi-Jaipur section of National Highway 48 from Delhi to Dharuhera was reviewed by top transport officials.

Road Transport and Highways secretary Giridhar Aramane and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) chairperson Alka Upadhyaya visited the Delhi-Jaipur section of NH-48 from Delhi to Dharuhera and supervised round-the-clock work to improve the condition of the road.

The secretary took stock of the condition of the highway and directed the contractors engaged by NHAI to complete the work at the earliest.

The repair work and reconstruction of 225-km long Gurgaon-Jaipur highway has been awarded to three contractors, who have already been mobilised for taking up the repair works on priority.

One agency has been engaged for the 64-km long Haryana portion and 161-km long Rajasthan portion has been awarded to another agency for faster construction.

A third contract has been awarded for construction of 15 new structures to resolve the frequent issue of traffic congestion on the Highway. The cost of all these works is Rs 913 crore.

The critical locations like Vartika flyover, Rampura flyover, Dharuhera, Masani have been repaired and the progress on the other locations in Haryana portion is being expedited.

The NHAI chairperson, while reviewing the progress of maintenance works, advised to construct proper diversions including widening of service roads to ensure smooth traffic movement prior to taking up construction of structures.

The issue of water logging and need for proper drainage for industrial waste of Bhiwadi was also discussed and the secretary Aramane requested state government officials to put in coordinated efforts to resolve the issue.

Delhi-Jaipur National Highway is an important link between the national capital and state capital of Rajasthan for socio-economic connectivity of the two cities.

The upkeep of this stretch is a high priority for NHAI and it is making all out efforts to ensure safe and smooth travel for the commuters.
