One step forward – Chennai

Design studies for the Bengaluru-Chennai expressway completed

The Bengaluru-Chennai greenfield express-way project, covering a length of 260 km, has seen significant progress in the past few months. The feasibility study-cum-­preliminary design report was submitted in March 2013 to the implementing agency, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), by Egis-BCEOM International SA, in association with SECON Private Limited. The six-lane project is part of the 1,000 km expressway plan under Phase VI of the National Highways Development Program.

Details of the project

"Extensive consultations/meetings with the three state governments helped to finalise the alignment in their respective states," says the deputy chief executive officer of Egis lndia Consulting Engineers Private Limited.

Singh explains the relatively higher toll rates and says, "ln the absence of any toll policy regarding expressways, we have suggested that toll rates could be fixed higher than those on national highways as safer facilities and higher level of services will be provided on the expressway. The toll rates could be 1.25/1.5/1.75 times those on national highways. The feasibility study has indicated that the concession period is lower when toll rates are 1.5 times the existing rates and also there is optimum diversion of traffic to the greenfield expressway.”

"The project is financially viable when toll rates are 1.5 times the existing rates on the national highway and so does not require any financial grant or equity support from the government." says Singh.

"NHAI will find it difficult to acquire land once the new land acquisition bill is passed by Parliament.” says Singh.
