The government is preparing the feasibility study for Delhi-Jaipur Expressway project. It will be too early to state about likely time of completion at this stage. This was stated by Sarvey Sathyanarayana, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in response to a written question in Lok Sabha.
The minister further said that the government alloted
Rs 399.98 crore to Rajasthan for the development and maintenance of National Highways (NHs) in year 2013-14.
The Maintenance and Repair of National Highways (NHs) is a continuous process. Maintenance of stretches developed under Built Operate and Transfer (BOT) mode is the responsibility of the concessionaires during concession period in accordance with the provisions of the concession agreement.
The stretches developed through budgetary support are maintained either through Operate, Maintenance Transfer (OMT) concessionaires or Operate & Maintenance (O&M) contracts. The balance stretches are maintained by the executing agencies through Maintenance & Repair (M&R) funds allocated to them, the minister said.
