Six-Laning Of Rajkot-Ahmedabad Highway Delayed By 3 Years

| Updated: January 30, 2023 15:32

The six-laning work of Rajkot-Ahmedabad highway has been delayed by three years. There are numerous traffic diversions and road blockages on the highway and the project is going on for the past five years. 

The communication between the contractors and the authority and the notices issued by the authority became public through two (RTI) replies. The RTI replies revealed that the two contractors who were assigned the work for four sections of the highway have defaulted in the work and only 40 to 50 percent of the work has been completed.

The work for the four sections was assigned to the two contractors in January 201. The deadline for the completion of the work was January 2020.

According to the communication, the authority took into consideration the difficult financial situation of the contractor and in July 2022 allowed sub-contracting and direct payment to the sub-contractor in order to put the project on fast track. But the contractor unnecessary consumed three months and brought a tri-party agreement in October 2022.

The authority’s engineer reported on November 24, 2022 that the contractor or sub-contractor started demobilization of manpower, machinery and materials (cement, steel, bitumen etc) from the project site without prior permission of the authority.
