Different incomplete ROBs are targeted to be completed by the end of calendar year 2016. One number of ROB in the state of Assam and two number of ROBs in the state of Uttar Pradesh are running behind schedule. Steps as per contract are being taken to complete the projects.
            This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways,       Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

Delayed Projects in West Bengal
Seven numbers of National Highways works aggregating to a length of 647 Km under National Highways Development Project (NHDP) are running behind schedule in the state of West Bengal. The delay in completion of the projects is mainly due to delay in land acquisition, and removal of encroachment, pre-construction activities and slow progress by concessionaire. To expedite completion of these projects, regular meetings have been held at various levels with State Government, concessionaire and other stakeholders to resolve the issues.

This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

***
Eastern Peripheral Expressway
Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) is proposed to be developed as a fully access controlled expressway.

The entire Expressway shall be provided with Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) with centralised control centre, closed tolling system which also include components like CCTV, weather monitoring, variable message signs, advanced communication system etc.

The work for construction of EPE has already been awarded in six packages on Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) mode having Total Capital Cost of Rs 7558.30 crores. This expressway is passing through the States of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

Delhi-Meerut Expressway
The Government has decided to construct Six- lane Delhi-Meerut Expressway.

Six lane Delhi-Meerut Expressway is proposed to be constructed up to Dasna along National Highway-24 and from Dasna to Meerut along a Greenfield alignment. In the first phase, it has been decided to develop Delhi-Dasna-Hapur section on Hybrid Annuity mode. Delhi-Dasna section is of fourteen lane configuration (Six lanes Expressway and Four lanes on either side) and Dasna-Hapur section is of Six lane configurations. Bids for these stretches have already been invited. The Greenfield alignment i.e. Dasna-Meerut section shall be taken up in second phase after completion of land acquisition and other pre-construction activities. For completion of work is a time bound manner, the entire project has been divided into manageable small size packages.

This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

Projects Under Hybrid Annuity Model
A new Hybrid Annuity Model has been adopted by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways for implementation of highway projects in order to encourage private sector participation through adequate incentives. The objective is to maximize the quantum of implemented highway projects within available financial resources of the Government. As per this model, 40% the Project Cost is provided by the Government as ‘Construction Support’ to the private developer during the construction period and the balance 60% as annuity payments over the concession period along with interest on outstanding amount to the concessionaire. Concessionaire remains responsible for Operation and Maintenance (O&M) till the end of the concession period and there is separate provision for O&M payments by the Government to the concessionaire. Project costs are inflation indexed (through a Price Index Multiple) and the toll are collected by the Authority, as such the concessionaire does not have to bear the traffic and inflation risks.

While adopting a new model, there is always an initial apprehension especially when it requires large investments.

Road Safety Issues
As per the Road Accidents in India 2014, published by Transport Research Wing of Ministry of Road Transport & Highways, 1,39,671 persons were killed in road accidents.

As per Global Status Report 2015 on Road Safety of World Health Organization (WHO), globally, road traffic crashes are a leading cause of death among young people, and the main cause of death among those aged 15–29 years.

Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has been impressing from time to time to Road Authorities to comply with Road Safety norms during design, construction and operation of roads including National Highways.

Auction of Completed Projects
A proposal for monetisation of highways of completed public funded National Highway (NH) projects through Toll-Operate-Transfer (TOT) mode based on the expected collection of user fee receivables, through private sector efficiency & expertise is under active consideration in the Ministry. Proceeds from such monetisation of completed NH projects which shall accrue to the government/authority are to be utilised for construction and operation and maintenance of National Highways throughout the country. The user fees shall be collected post auction as per existing provisions of the National Highways Fee (Determination of Rates and Collection) Rules, 2008 and amendments thereof. At present completed public funded National Highway (NH) projects are bid out to private developers for operation and maintenance including toll collection for a pre-determined period on Operate-Maintain-Transfer (OMT) mode.

Objections to Widening of NH-2
Land is being acquired for widening of NH-2 passing from Barwadda to Brakar section. No location prone to fire or subsidence has been reported in the Feasibility Study Report of the project prepared by the Design Consultant. Independent Engineer has also reported that there is no subsidence in the area.

Representations have been received from the Nirsa Nagrik Samiti for construction of bypass for the Nirsa area. The construction of bypass has not been considered, as widening to six laning is in progress and any alteration in the project alignment shall delay the project on account of Land Acquisition & Utility shifting. This will also have huge financial implication which will effect the user fee to be collected from the road users.

This information was given by Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways, Shri Pon. Radhakrishnan in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha.

Road Connectivity To Non-Major Ports
The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has taken up a detailed review of National Highways (NHs) Network with a view to improve connectivity in border areas including coastal boundary / connectivity covering development of about 7,000 km of new NHs under Bharatmala Pariyojna in consultation with State Governments. The proposed programme is, inter-alia, envisaged to include development of road connectivity to some non-major ports also. However, project is yet to be formally launched.

Government of Odisha had initially submitted proposal / estimates for road connectivity to Dhamra Port, Chudamani Port, Gopalpur Port, Subarnarekha Mouth Port, Astaranga Port and Baliharchandi Port in the State with the National Highways Network. Later it was clarified that Government of Odisha had signed Concession Agreement/MOU with different private port developers to develop these non-major ports in the State in PPP mode and the road connectivity to these ports was included in the respective agreements of the port developers with the State Government. In light of the above developments, the feasibility studies for development of four lane connectivity to the aforementioned ports in the State of Odisha were terminated by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).
