National Highways Projects in Chhattisgarh
There are 10 numbers of National Highways (NHs) passing through the state of Chhattisgarh connecting 24 districts. Four proposals with aggregate length of 1267km for declaration of state roads to NHs have been received from State Government of Chhattisgarh. One road having length of 110km has been declared as NH in the year 2012.

In the state of Chhattisgarh, 5 stretches of NHs with aggregate length of about 420 km have already been awarded under National Highway Development Project (NHDP), of which about 125 km length is completed. Besides this, 7 stretches of NHs with aggregate length of about 1010 km in Chhattisgarh including districts of Jashpur-Bilaspur-Korba and Ambikapur have been identified for development under NHDP, which are at different stages of project preparation. These projects are being taken up on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode; therefore no project wise separate funds are earmarked. It is premature to indicate the time frame for their completion pending finalization of feasibility reports.

This information was given by the Minister of State of Road Transport and Highways, Shri Jitin Prasada, in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.
