NEW DELHI, March 26 - Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, Government of India, has sanctioned development of 403 km of National Highways in Meghalaya and Mizoram. Out of this, approximately 52 km will be in Meghalaya and 351 km in Mizoram. The project will be executed in EPC Mode.

The estimated cost of the roads is Rs 6,721 crore including cost of land acquisition, resettlement and other pre-construction activities, said official sources.

The projects will be taken up for implementation during the financial year 2017-18. The civil works are expected to be completed by 2021 and maintenance works are expected to be completed by 2025.

The projects will encourage sub-regional socio-economic development by improvement of infrastructure in Meghalaya and Mizoram. It will also enhance the connectivity with inter-State roads and International Borders.

The work for development to two-lane standards is under scheme �North East Road Network Connectivity Project Phase I� with loan assistance of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The existing carriageway of all the stretches is varying between single lanes to intermediate lane. The condition of the pavement is very poor and at some locations not in trafficworthy condition. In addition, the stretches are also in poor condition in the landslide areas/sinking zone. Update and development of these stretches to two lane with paved shoulders standard will be done, the sources said.
