NHAI fast-tracks approval of 1,500 km of coastal road projects

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has fast-tracked approval of 1,500 km of coastal road projects after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s emphasis on infrastructure development in his Independence Day speech.

“We are moving forward on four-laning of roads in the coastal region, around 1,500 km of projects have been identified … the exercise has been fast tracked after a push from PM Modi,” a senior government official told The Economic Times.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.

In his national address on India’s 74th Independence Day, the prime minister said a National Infrastructure Pipeline worth Rs 110 lakh crore has been set up to boost infrastructure projects.
