Mott MacDonald wins Indian road scheme

Mott MacDonald has been appointed design consultant by IVRCL Raipur-Bilaspur Tollways 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 INR13bn (£187M), 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.

The project is due for completion in July 2014.
