This work will be under the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Phase-IV.
The approval is in Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis.
The cost is estimated to be Rs.1905.23 crore including cost of land acquisition, resettlement and rehabilitation and other pre-construction activities. The total length of the road will be approximately 99 kilometers.
The main objective of the project is to expedite the improvement of infrastructure in Telangana and also in reducing the time and cost of travel for traffic, particularly heavy traffic, plying on the Yadgiri-Warangal sector.
