West Bengal Highway Project (NH - 34)
DBFOT based four - laning of three contiguous stretch of approximately 256 km from Baharampore to Dalkhola
Sole North - South traffic corridor within West Bengal
Increases connectivity to the North Eastern states and is a strategic trade route with neighbouring countries including China and Bhutan
Largest PPP highway model in West Bengal
Required investment: Rs.3,231 crore
This eagerly awaited project being developed by HCC Concessions on a Design, Finance, Build, Operate and Transfer (DFBOT) basis, is the largest PPP highway model in West Bengal. The project road is a part of NH–34 which originates at Kolkata and ends at Dalkhola in the state of West Bengal, covering a total distance of 443.5 km. The NH–34 stretch passes through key towns such as Krishnanagar, Palashi, Baharampore, Morgram, Jangipur, Farakka, Ingraj Bazar, Pandua, Raiganj, Karandighi, among other locations. The concession lengths for the different segments totalling 256 km range from 25 to 30 years, including a construction period of 30 months and an investment of over Rs.3,200 crore. The highway development, divided into three contiguous sections covers Baharampore and Farakka (103 km), Farakka and Raiganj (103 km) and Raiganj and Dalkhola (50 km), and will offer amenities such as truck lay byes, bus bays, shelters, wayside facilities and rest areas. On October 31, 2010, the Finance Minister, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee laid the foundation stone for this 256 km development. In his speech he stated that when complete, the project will provide greater connectivity to North East India and give a significant boost to commerce and trade in West Bengal and surrounding regions. Further, NH–34 is also of great strategic and commercial importance given its connectivity to China, Bhutan and other neighbouring countries.
