Airports India - - WONDERFUL WORLD -

In this pro­gramme the min­istry has planned to re­move all the level cross­ings on na­tional high­ways by con­struct­ing ROBS and RUBS. To achieve this, state-wise con­sul­tants have been ap­pointed for ap­prox­i­mately 214 ROBS/RUBS, out of which the min­istry will be sanc­tion­ing/award­ing around 100 ROBS/RUBS for con­struc­tion dur­ing 2015-16. Re­main­ing ROBS/RUBS will be sanc­tioned/ awarded dur­ing 2016-17. Re­gard­ing bridges, the min­istry has iden­ti­fied ap­prox­i­mately 1500 weak/nar­row old bridges for which con­sul­tants are be­ing ap­pointed. The min­istry has made a tar­get of sanc­tion­ing 50 ma­jor bridges dur­ing 2015-16 and an­other 100 ma­jor bridges in 2016-17. This will also help in stream­lin­ing move­ment of over di­men­sional and over­weight ve­hi­cles on na­tional high­ways which will in turn help in de­vel­op­ment of heavy in­dus­try and the Make in In­dia pro­gramme. In par­al­lel a pro­gramme for sur­vey of all bridges along the na­tional high­ways to be con­ducted twice each year has been launched. This will pro­vide timely in­puts re­gard­ing the sta­tus of each struc­ture and help in iden­ti­fy­ing and pri­ori­tis­ing the bridge projects to be taken up un­der the Setu Bharatam pro­gramme.
