After two-years, the construction of the Chandigarh-Kharar road project is less than half complete. However, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is hopeful of its completion by January 2020 as Larsen & Toubro is engaged for the project. Challenges like land acquisition still however need to be addressed in order to achieve this. While the possession of around 4.5 km of l and required for the 10.6-km-long is yet to be taken,
Mohali Administration had expedited the process of making payment of compensation a couple of months ago and work is on full-swing. Officials are hopeful to complete the Rs 368 crore project by early next year if they get the possession of the land required.
But if one goes by the claims of sources in the construction company, the project would take 18 months to be completed, if construction begins in full swing straightaway. In the note of land acquisition, NHAI will be directly dealing with the owners of the structure. To acquire 25 heactares for the construction work, there are almost 300 odd structures, which includes shops, houses, buildings and 10 more structures.
