Chief secretary to review NH-8 work

September 26, 2013


JAIPUR: In an attempt to expedite the widening of Jaipur-Delhi highway and break the deadlock between National Highways Authority of India and Rajasthan government, chief secretary CK Mathew will hold a review meeting on Tuesday.

Facing the wrath of public over constant delay and dilapidated condition of NH-8, the state government and NHAI will look for available options. The meeting has been convened after governor Margaret Alva too expressed her displeasure over the current situation.

 ”We will review the project and sort out solutions to ensure timely completion of the project,” said Mathew. Officials of NHAI who earlier blamed the state government for delay in land acquisition are positive on the outcome of the project.

Relocation of several religious structures from demolishing of building that are coming on the way remains a point of tussle between the two stakeholders. Tuesday’s meeting is an effort from the CS to clear the air between two and bring them on same platform.

“There has been constant support from the state government except on two-three points. We will sit and discuss on how to resolve those points and go ahead,” said the senior official of NHAI.
