Mott MacDonald secures a large highways contract in India

Mott MacDonald has been appointed design consultant by IVRCL Raipur-Bilaspur Tollways Ltd for the planned Raipur-Bilaspur national highway 200 in India. Part of the National Highways Development Programme Phase IV established by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), the new road will connect Raipur in Chhatttisgarh to Chandikohole in Orissa, passing through areas like Bilaspur, Raigarh and Jarsuguda.

Costing INR13,000 million, the 127km long road is primarily made up of four lanes, with 34km of the highway comprising six lanes. The works will include design of four major and 19 minor bridges, a railway over-bridge, three flyovers, 22 vehicular and nine pedestrian underpasses, 172 culverts, 18 major junctions, 15 bus bays, two truck lay-bys, three toll plazas and 25km of retaining walls.

Mott MacDonald will be responsible for the engineering and detailed design of the project, which will facilitate transportation of raw materials like iron ore, limestone, dolomite, bauxite and coal to core industries thriving in the region. The stretch will also improve connectivity of industrially developing areas like Bilaspur, Raigarh and Jarsuguda.

Commenting on this success Srinivasa Chari, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “This highway will be a strategic part of India’s highway network connecting eastern and western India via NH78 Ranchi and NH6 Nagpur respectively.”

He added: “With proven experience in managing major transport projects, we are uniquely placed to deliver this strategic highway and in particular are looking forward to the challenges of designing the new 550m long two lane bridge over the River Sivnath.”

Mott MacDonald has successfully completed bridge projects for IVRCL in the past and has vast experience of major highways and bridge projects around the world. The project is due for completion in July 2014.
