Times of India reported that the Agra-Delhi National Highway 2 six-laning project which was to be completed by June 30 is still in progress. Over the past three years, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has postponed the deadline several times. The proposal for widening the 179.5 km of the national highway was prepared in 2012 and was planned to be completed by 2015.

Mr Mohammad Safi, NHAI project director said that “NHAI had tasked a private company on lease for NH-2 broadening project. As per revised deadline, the works were targeted to be completed by June 30. But this didn’t happen due to some technical reasons. We have not extended the deadline any further. Work progress is monitored on a daily basis. Very soon the project works will be completed.”

Giving reasons for the delay, sources said on the city stretch of the highway, nullah construction work has not been completed. Recent rainfall had caused waterlogging on the highway due to lack of proper drainage system, resulting in a massive traffic jam. The service road construction work is yet to be completed near Gurudwara Guru Ka Tal. Road surface has not been levelled near Sikandra police station.

From Runakta to water works crossing, the pace of work has been very slow over the past several months in violation of construction norms. Flow of traffic has been restricted in this part.
