The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is inviting bids for developing a 187 km stretch of the National Highway 66 involving a cost of around Rs 1,655 crore, The Hindu reported on Tuesday.

The project entails widening of the road between Kundapur and Goa border via Karwar. NHAI has fixed March 30, 2012 as the last date for receiving request for proposal (RPF). The bids were invited by NHAI only after the Public Private Partnership Appraisal Committee (PPAC), under the Union Department of Economic Affairs recently approved the project.

The project would be developed under phase IV of the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) and would be executed under Design, Build, Finance, Operate, and Transfer (DBFOT) toll basis.

One of the significant features of this project consists of a 350 metre elevated highway that will come up at Maravanthe, at a place where the existing highway passes through a narrow stretch between the sea and the river.

Sources told the newspaper, the government needs to acquire 260 hectares of land and 122 hectares of forestland for completing the project.
