NHAI awards contract for four-laning of Bar-Bilara Jodhpur section in Rajasthan to L&T

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has issued letter of award (LOA) for four-laning of the 111 km Bar-Bilara-Jodhpur section in Rajasthan to infrastructure major Larsen & Toubro (L&T).
The project. Estimated to cost Rs. 895 crore, will be taken up under phase IV of National Highways Development Programme (NHDP), an official press release said.
The section connects western Rajasthan and border areas (Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Barmer) to eastern part of Rajasthan such as Ajmer and Jaipur.  
“This is a major strategic route connecting Jodhpur as an important feeder route during war time.  Four laning of the section will permit smooth flow of military traffic as well as heavy commercial and domestic traffic.   It will also facilitate transportation of mining and agriculture product,” the release said. 
The project will have two bypasses, one at Bar (3.25 km) and another at Bilara (6.70 km), four flyovers, three pedestrian underpasses, four major bridges and one railway overbridge.  The project would be executed in EPC mode and the scheduled time of completion is 30 months from the date of commencement, the release added.
