GMR Group's Ambala-Chandigarh highway project was inaugurated at Chandigarh today. This 35 km stretch on NH21 & NH22 was executed on a BOT Toll model at an investment of Rs. 500 Crore. The concession period for this project is 20 years and it took two and a half years to complete. The project has been completed within the time schedule agreed under the Concession Agreement and received its provisional completion certificate on 14th November, 2008.

 

GMR Group won this project through an international competitive bid from the NHAI in November, 2005. The scope of the project included widening of the existing 2-lanes to 4-lanes and improvement, operation and maintenance, rehabilitation and strengthening of the existing road. This project was GMR Group's first highway project in North India.

 

The Ambala - Chandigarh stretch has one of the highest traffic densities in the country, catering to vehicular traffic between Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and New Delhi. Four laning of this road will ease the traffic congestion and provide a tremendous boost to trade and commerce in the region. Apart from reduction in travel time, this road is also expected to improve safety levels for travelers since it has been built as per world-class specifications. There is a 12-lane state of the art toll plaza for toll collection.

 

Speaking at the occasion Mr. P B Vanchi, Group Advisor and Director said: "We are very upbeat on the future of Highway development in the country and are interested in the new projects which are being awarded by NHAI in phase III and V of NHDP. We have been shortlisted for a number of these projects and are currently evaluating them."

 

Other highway projects of GMR Group

 

The GMR Group has three more BOT projects under construction which are expected to be commissioned within the current financial year. These are:

  • Four laning of the 107 km stretch between Adloor and Pochanpalli on NH-7 in Andhra Pradesh at a cost of Rs 690 Crore.
  • The 58 km stretch between Shivrampalli / Faruknagar and Jadcherla, at a project cost of Rs. 490 Crore. This road will be the main corridor for people commuting between Hyderabad city and the new Greenfield Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, also developed by GMR Group.
  • The 71 km stretch between Tindivanam and Ulundurpet on NH45 in Tamil Nadu, at a project cost of Rs. 820 Crore.

GMR Group already has two highways under operation the 93 km Tambaram-Tindivanam stretch on NH45 in Tamil Nadu and the 60 km Tuni-Anakapalli stretch on NH5 in Andhra Pradesh. Both are annuity projects. With the commissioning of four new highways, the Group will have a balanced mix of toll and annuity based assets, totaling 420 Km in length.
