The Orissa Government is planning to develop about 250 kms of roads in Malkangiri, Raygada, Ganjam, Koraput and Sambalpur districts. These road projects are likely to involve an estimated expenditure of Rs 400 crore.

The Union Government has agreed to provide the funds for five to six road projects in those affected areas and out of it, it has approved three. The roads which have been sanctioned are Samasingha (Sinduraparua)-Sambalpur, Parlakhemundi-Mohana via R Udayagiri and Gunupur-Andhra border via Kashipur. The Works Department of Orissa has sent the DPR for these roads to the Union Government. Work on these projects is likely to start after 3-4 months after the tender process is over.

Meanwhile, a team of the World Bank officials have visited the new road sites being taken up under Orissa State Road Project (OSRP). These stretches are construction of the 68-km Bhawanipatna-Khariar road, 95 km long Chandbali-Bhadrakh-Anandapur road and 41 km Berhampur-Taptapani road. After some delay in those projects, the works have finally taken off.

Under Phase I of OSRP, construction of 204 kms of roads is proposed to be constructed. Similarly, construction of 257 kms of road is likely to be taken up in the second phase of OSRP. This includes Taptapani-Raipanka road (68 km), Raipanka-JK Pur (83km) and Jagatpur-Chandabali (106 km).

NECL receives MoU clause waiver for Astaranga port

December 11, 2009 1 comment

The Orissa Government has relaxed a clause in its MoU with the Hyderabad based Navayuga Engineering Company (NECL), enabling NECL to sign concession agreement with it for developing an all weather port at Astaranga in Puri district.

The clause stated that the developer has to obtain all the statutory clearances before signing the concession agreement. However, NECL had pleaded before the state government that it should be allowed to sign the concession agreement without obtaining all the statutory clearances, so as to expedite work on the project.

The company proposes to invest Rs 1,500 crore for the port project in the Phase I, Rs 2,000 crore in Phase II and Rs 2,500 crore in Phase III.
