CCEA nod for six-laning of Narasannapeta-Ranastalam section of NH-6 in Andhra Pradesh

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) yesterday gave its approval for development of six laning of Narasannapeta-Ranastalam section of National Highway (NH) – 16 (old NH-5) in Andhra Pradesh. 
The cost is estimated to be Rs. 1423 crore including cost of land acquisition, resettlement and rehabilitation and other pre-construction activities. The total length of the six laned road to be developed is approximately 54 km, an official press release said.
The release said the work would be carried out under National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Phase V on Hybrid Annuity Mode. 
The major industrial development centres that will be benefitted with better connectivity from the project corridor are APIIC SEZ, Pydibhimavaram, Bhogapuram Airport, Vizag Steel Plant, Visakhapatnam Port, Gangavaram Port, Divi's Laboratories Limited & INS Varsha. The projected traffic in 2016-17 on this stretch is about 33000 PCUs per day. 
The provision for two by-passes will ensure decongestion of the urban areas of Etcherla and Ranastalam. Similarly, the 29 flyovers and under passes would facilitate fast movement of traffic, it said.
