Construction work is now underway for the Jaipur Outer Ring Road project in Rajasthan in India. The work is being carried out in three phases in all and will involve the construction of a 150km route featuring up to three lanes in either direction. The first two phases are for a section of 47km of National Highway, which will be built to the south of Jaipur, connecting Ajmer Road, Tonk Road and Agra Road. The third stage is for the remaining distance and will be built around northern Jaipur, connecting with Agra Road, Delhi Road, Sikar Road and Ajmer Road.
The proposals for the project were first put forward in 2000, with the tender process being completed and the contract awarded in 2011. However disagreements over the payments to landowners along the route stalled progress. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has come to new agreements, breaking the previous deadlock and allowing work to commence at last.
