has dismissed it.
Accompanied by State PWD minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa, the deputy CM also had a detailed meeting with the NHAI
chairman to sort out lingering issues coming in the way of early completion of various lifeline projects of Punjab.
The road project, initially scheduled to be completed by April 2009, has been delayed by 13 months, primarily due to the delay in receiving the right of way (ROW) from NHAI
For instance, last month the minister announced that no matter how big a company is, if it has three projects on hand, all awaiting a financial closure, then it cannot bid for a fourth project of the NHAI
Meanwhile, on their part, the officials of the NHAI
contended that they were strictly adhering to the court's directives in the matter.
All relevant data: taken from reliable primary sources like major players in construction, financing, equipment leasing, tolling and consulting; and secondary data collected from NHAI
, Planning Commission and MORTH.
The apex court told NHAI
that children were getting hospitalised due to rising pollution in the Capital.
The Chairman NHAI
assured the Deputy Chief Minister that the work of Ludhiana-Talwandi Section would be allotted by September 2010 and for Kharar-Ludhiana Section by January 2011.
The search committee would select a chairman for NHAI
for at least three years, which is likely to be extended up to five years with relaxation in age up to 62 years.
Moreover, the NHAI
officials have informed Vidyarthi to deal with waterlogging from Rajeev Chowk to Hero Honda Chowk, especially on rainy days.
The ministry has asked NHAI
to make provisions for an integrated commercial, industrial and housing development on the alignments of the greenfield expressways.
THE construction of underpasses at three major intersections - Signature Tower, Iffco Chowk and Rajeev Chowk - on the Delhi- Gurgaon expressway has been delayed as the NHAI
is yet to provide the project estimates to the Gurgaon civic body.
