A ground survey for aligning the two RRTS projects has already been done by the NCRTC and building them along the national highways, would significantly reduce the construction time by over three years, besides bringing down the costs substantially, since land acquisition would not be required, the official quoted Mishra as saying at the meeting.

The NHAI and the NCRTC would jointly prepare an action plan, after examining the issues related to the future expansion plans and possible congestion and the options to address them, the official said.

During the meeting, Kumar conveyed the in-principle agreement, about the NHAI taking up the execution of Urban Extension Road-2 project, aimed at decongesting Delhi by connecting three national highways, the official said. A feasibility report in this regard would be prepared in a month’s time for further discussions, he added.
