Government proposes to build stretch of NH-33 at own cost

State government filed an affidavit before the Jharkhand high court praying that the first and second phases of National Highway-33, which connects Ranchi and Jamshedpur and forms part of the Ranchi Ring Road, be delinked from the National Highway Authority of India’s (NHAI) road project. In its appeal, the state government said it is ready to construct the stretch of the road at its own cost.

The appeal was made during the hearing of a PIL (WP-PIL/3503/2014) before the division bench of Justices Aparesh Kumar Singh and Anil Kumar Choudhary on Thursday.

Appearing on behalf of the state, Advocate General Ajit Kumar said, “Jharkhand government submitted before the court that due to non-completion of the Phase-1 and Phase 2 of the NH-33, the Ranchi Ring Road could not be made fully operational, which in turn has been causing acute traffic problems in the state capital.” Read More
