The project would be implemented on EPC mode with construction period of 24 months. The project includes upgradation of the highway from 2 lane to 4 lane with rigid pavement (cement concrete road), along with construction of 4 major bridges, 20 minor bridges, 9 underpasses at the location of minor junction and 29 minor junctions for the free and safe movement of road users.

Thirteen kilometer of the project road passes through wild life sanctuary in which 39.750 ha. area of wildlife forest land is required for diversion. The road also passes through Reserve and Protected forest for 2 km length in which 11.081 ha. forest land is required for diversion. In order to facilitate free and safe movement of wildlife, adequate mitigation measures have been included in the project viz. additional span of 5m on the either side of the major bridges, provision of structures of size 5X3.5M at 25 locations.

On completion of the project, the journey on this highway is expected to become safer, time, fuel and vehicle maintenance cost saving.
