Smart Men

Get set go! It's here: the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE), India's first smart and green highway. And here are the men behind the job: Vishnubhai M Patel, Promoter, Sadbhav Engineering; Manoj Gaur, Executive Chairman & CEO, Jaiprakash Associates; Satish Parakh, Managing Director, Ashoka Buildcon; TV Sandeep Kumar Reddy, Promoter and Managing Director, Gayatri Projects; and KS Bakshi, Managing Director, Oriental Structural Engineers - these five companies bagged six contracts for the Centre's most ambitious project to decongest Delhi. The 135-km expressway will boast of many firsts, and is reportedly expected to reduce vehicular pollution in Delhi-NCR by about 27-28 per cent. Built at Rs 110 billion, the project has reportedly consumed 5 lakh tonne of cement and 1 lakh tonne of steel. Further, it has been equipped with smart and intelligent highway traffic management system (HTMS) and video incident detection system (VIDS), besides a closed tolling system in which the collections will be made only on the distance travelled and not on the entire length, and it will be lit with solar lights. What's more, the project is reportedly set to be completed in a record time of 500 days as against a sanctioned target of 910 days. What better reason for the gentlemen behind this project to hold their heads high!
