Indian Express reported that the National Highways Authority of India has no proposal in near future for six laning of 41 kilometer Puintola-Ichhapur stretch along Odisha-Andhra Pradesh border in Ganjam district. This was stated during a meeting on land acquisition and eviction of encroachments held here recently. The district administration had proposed that the NHAI should expand the stretch from four lane to six-lane and construct service roads and flyovers at seven places. Later, the NHAI authorities conducted a survey and submitted a detailed project report to the Central Government for its approval, but to no avail. The stretch used to witness traffic congestion due to the movement of heavy vehicles.

Meanwhile, the portion was transferred from the jurisdiction of NHAI’s Bhubaneswar Division to Visakhapatnam Division last year. However, a 15-km stretch from Puintola Chowk to Narayani Chowk remained under Bhubaneswar Division.
