CONSTRUCTION OF UDAIPUR BYPASS ON DELHI-JAIPUR-UDAIPUR-AHMEDABAD N.H. NO. 8 THROUGH PRIVATE PARTICIPATION ON B.O.T. BASIS

The Udaipur bypass on Indian National Highway NH 8, as planned by the Ministry of Surface Transport (MOST), is 17km long, but it has been difficult to finance this project. MOST sanctioned the 6km long Phase I in March 1994, with a planned completion date of September 1997, which was later not achieved. Phase II could not be sanctioned by MOST, for lack of funds, but a private entrepreneur was selected from submitted bids in September 1995; work began in September 1996. The civil engineering works for the bypass include: two overbridges, two underbridges, a high level bridge over the River Ayad, 31 minor bridges and culverts, and one toll plaza near a junction with Rajasthan State Highway SH 9. The following technical design tests were conducted: soil investigations, tests of construction materials, and tests of soil bearing capacity for bridge construction. This paper also describes several other aspects of this project, including: (1) design and specifications; (2) the project feasibility; (3) private sector participation and agreement conditions; (4) bids; (5) legal agreements; (6) risks; (7) costs of project and assessment period; (8) roles of MOST and the project steering group; (9) the toll plaza and toll collection; (10) public reactions; (11) traffic count; and (12) maintenance.
