Committee to clear stalled road projects

The Road Transport and Highways Ministry has proposed setting up an empowered committee to clear stuck road projects worth Rs 30,000 crore. The ministry will soon move a Cabinet note on the panel. Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari has a target of awarding 30 km of road construction contracts per day from the current pace of 18 km. There are over 19 road projects that are stuck due to various problems including cost escalation, unviability of projects and spat between bankers and concessionaires.
