NEW DELHI, Jan 28 � Underlining the need to develop the road network in the north eastern region, Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari today said that developing roads in the North-east and border areas is the NDA government�s priority.

Gadkari was launching the logo and website of the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (NHIDCL) at a function here today.

He said the Corporation, based on the idea of e-governance, would be an instrument for creation and management of infrastructure of the highest standard in the country with focus on the North-east and border areas and contribute significantly towards nation building.

�The formation would boost the initiatives towards capacity building among stakeholders, as well as generate employment for the youth of the areas,� he added.

Gadkari further said that every road should be economically viable and, therefore, his ministry has been trying to address the problems in land acquisition, environment clearance, rail bridge construction simultaneously at the level of project management consultancy.

The National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation is a fully owned company of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. The company aims to promote, survey, establish, design, build, operate, maintain and upgrade national highways and other infrastructure, including inter-connecting roads, particularly in the north eastern region and strategic areas of the country.

The regional connectivity so enhanced would promote cross-border trade and commerce and help safeguard India�s international borders. The infrastructure so created would lead to the formation of a more integrated and economically consolidated South and South East Asia, Gadkari said.

An approximate aggregate length of 10,000 km has been identified by the Corporation for development. In the first phase, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has entrusted 60 works to the company for constructing 3,586 km at a total cost of Rs 34,300 crore.

The function also marked the release of the company�s first tender pertaining to the improvement to two-lane NH standards of Akajan-Likabali-Bame Road in Arunachal Pradesh at an estimated cost of Rs 272 crore.
