The Indian road network is the third largest one in the world after the United States and China. For several years, Egis has been involved in many projects to upgrade and develop the entire road infrastructure of the country.
The National Highway 8D (NH-8D) is a 124 km toll motorway connecting Jetpur (Rjkot district) and Somnath (Gir Somnath district) on the West coast of the Indian federal state of Gujarat. The motorway has two toll plazas with 10 lanes each.
The concession company JSTPL (Jetpur Somnath Tollways Private Limited) awarded the operation and maintenance of the motorway NH-8D to Egis for three years (two years with one year automatic extension). The scope of works includes toll, route patrolling and incident management of the motorway.
This new operating contract strengthens the willingness of Egis to contribute to the sustainable economic and social development of India.
