In Haryana, the construction of underpass at Kharki Daula Chowk on National Highway-8 (NH-8) was agreed in-principle on cost sharing formula with Govt. of Haryana, said the Union Minister of State in the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways Tushar A. Chaudhary in a reply to a question in Rajya Sabha recently.
However, in the absence of commitment for cost sharing, it was decided to explore the possibility to provide Grade Separators at some locations on NH-8 on innovative financing through vertical expansion of NH with the provision of commercial/real estate development within Right of Way.
A Management Board has been constituted to implement a pilot project which includes construction of grade separator at Hero-Honda Chowk on NH-8. The successful implementation of the pilot project may be replicated for other crossings inter-alia at Kharki Daula Chowk on NH-8.
