The BRO is also developing an underwater tunnel across the Brahmaputra. The approval-in-principle has been accorded by the Ministry of Defence and the proposal includes two road tubes and one rail tube.


This is the first time I'm hearing of this.

It is misleading headline by DDM (60,000 KMS road developed in 2019)

There are also plans to connect Tawang with all weather road and rail network.It involves building a 29 kms long tunnel (India's longest).

Fund paucity halts repair of PM Gram Sadak Yojana

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/ne ... content=18

The situation is pressing as 70% PMGSY roads are now out of the defect liability period (DLP) that requires the contractor to maintain and repair roads for five years after construction. About 40% of the roads have also completed 10 years of their design life, requiring repair and renewal.

It is estimated that only 14% of the roads have been relaid so far.

Rs 260 cr loan to Anil Ambani firm. it is missing deadlines for widening Pune Bangalore road. the firm is accused of diverting toll money to buy mutual funds

extracts the article is lengthy
The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has offered the Anil Ambani controlled P S Toll Road Private Limited a loan of Rs 260 crore despite
the company missing deadline after deadline to complete the widening of a crucial stretch of the Pune-Bangalore highway and being accused of diverting toll money to invest in mutual funds.
The decision was taken in February last year under NHAI’s One Time Fund Infusion Scheme (OTFIS) in the presence of Union Minister for Surface
Transport Nitin Gadkari and the Mumbai office of NHAI has now forwarded the proposal to the headquarters in Delhi.
P S Toll Road Private Limited, a subsidiary of R-Infra Ltd, which runs the Ghatkopar-Andheri Metro, has been given five extensions for the widening of
the 140 km stretch since 2010, when it bagged the project.
The original deadline to complete the project was 30 months with a provision to extend it by 12 months.
It secured the first extension in November 2014 with a new deadline for completion - December 2015. The last extension was given in March 2019. This
time, the new deadline was set for June 2019. But by company’s own admission, it had completed 93.6 % of the work by January 2019.
As per the contract conditions, in case of a concessionaire failing to achieve two project milestones, it would have to complete the third using its own
resources. He would be allowed to draw money from the escrow account only after he completes the third milestone within the deadline.

Actually UP is the easiest state to build a 400km expressway because of flat topography. There is no other state in India, not even Rajasthan, where the land is flat can support the carriageway and easy to build on. Regardless, full credit to UP.

Hold on to your (3rd party your) pants, it is going to be blown away. Dhotis will shiver so much that it will be shredded. Think GSLV MkIII type exhaust will blow it to smithereens.

India is going to construct tunnels, bridges, and aqueducts as needed to achieve the goal for connectivity.
