23.2-kilometer Maduravoyal-Sriperumbudur stretch to be completed by year-end: NHAI report

Infrastructure  -  Sep 16,2023  - 

NHAI status report said that the 23.2-kilometer Maduravoyal-Sriperumbudur section six-laning construction should be completed by the end of this month.

The repair is being carried out at a cost of Rs 463 crore by the State Highways Department's NH department. The 34-kilometer Sriperumbudur-Karaipettai part of NH 4 (Rs 654 crore) would be completed by October 31, while the 36-kilometer Karaipettai-Walajapet stretch (Rs 533 crore) would be completed by the end of this year.

Admitting the status report filed by the NHAI, the first bench comprising Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and Justice PD Audikesavalu posted the case to October 3 so as to verify whether the work of the first stretch was completed as assured through the status report.

The report was filed by the NHAI seeking to lift the court’s order on collecting only 50 per cent of user fees in the Sriperumbudur and Walajapet toll plazas.

The court had issued the direction in December 2020, asking it to collect only 50 per cent of user fees at the two toll plazas due to poor condition of the stretch.
