A meeting of the Standing Financing Committee was scheduled on Monday in Delhi, where the proposed budget for the road was approved after the formality of the discussion. The department’s SDO AK Srivastava said that a sum of 193 crores had been sanctioned in the month of December for the first phase of the 130 C (Abhanpur to Panduka) route.
The fourth phase of toll plazas, under the Bharat mala scheme, will be 27 km. A total proposal of Rs.120.87 crore has been sent out of which 84 crores will be spent on civil work, the rest of the land acquisition, and other provisions.
Four phased NH 130C
Abhanpur to Panduka is 40.400 km, for which a sum of 193 crores was sanctioned in December 2020.
From Panduka to Dhawalpur is 99.800 km, the road is dilapidated in many places, but due to two-way, the forest department has the maximum distance, and therefore the budget approval for this phase is pending.
This phase measures 69Km from Dhawalpur to Madangmuda. The entire area falls under the reserve forest, the attempt to allow road construction failed. Due to the dilapidated condition of the road, National Highway Authority has sanctioned double code diversion work on the old single way road instead of new construction.
Madangmuda to Khurtgaon is a part of 27.600 km to the Odisha border. The decrepitated road on this part of the densely populated part has frequent accidents. A proposal of Rs 120.87 crore has been sent for this road which is 12 meters wide which is expected to be finalized today.
