Posted On: 07 DEC 2022 4:26PM by PIB Delhi

Out of 53 packages covering a total length of 825 km of Chardham Road Project in the State of Uttarakhand, 43 packages with a total length of 683 km have been sanctioned.  Out of these, 21 packages covering a length of 291 km are complete 2 packages are yet to be awarded, 1 package was de-sanctioned and balance 19 packages covering a length of 366 km are in different stages of progress. This project was originally scheduled for completion by March 2022. 

However, the programme was delayed mainly due to litigation related to forest and environment clearance in various Courts of Law.  This project is being reviewed/monitored by a High Powered Committee (HPC) for non-strategic roads (Rudrarprayag – Gaurikund and Dharasu Bend – Jankichatti) and an oversight Committee for strategic roads (Rishikesh – Mana, Rishikesh – Gangotri  and Tanakpur – Pithoragarh) constituted as per the direction of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.  The sanction and completion of the balance part of the project depends on finalization of Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) and execution of the works as per the directions of the above Committees.  

This information was given by the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
