CCEA okays four-laning of Patna-Gaya-Dobhi section of NH-83 in Bihar


The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) yesterday approved the implementation of four-laning of the 127.20 km Patna-Gaya-Dobhi section on National Highway (NH)-83 in Bihar with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) – ODA Loan Assistance.

The total capital cost of the project will be Rs 2015.60 crore, which includes cost of civil construction, supervision works, land acquisition, rehabilitation and pre-construction activities. 
The project will be completed within three years after signing of the contract agreement, an official press release said. 
The project takes off from NH-30 at Patna and ends at junction of NH-83 and NH-2 (Golden Quadrilateral) at Dobhi. 
The Japanese government is ready to fund the project through JICA loan, as it will connect Patna-Gaya-Dobhi as a part of the Buddhist Circuit. The project also serves as link road for the world class international Nalanda University which is expected to come up at Rajgir. 
The project road will provide smooth connectivity to Gaya/Bodhgaya, Rajgir and Nalanda both from Patna and in turn connecting the East-West corridor and Golden Quadrilateral at Dobhi on NH-2. It also will provide substantial economic gain in terms of reduced vehicle operating costs and reduced travel time, the release added.
