Pink City Expressway stalled for 3 years, PMO sets October deadline

News:

  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s top civil servant hauled road builder KMC Constructions into his office last week, and set an October deadline to finish the Pink City Expressway linking Delhi and Jaipur.
  • The 225 km (140 mile) highway is still missing seven bridges, several stretches need to be widened to the projected six lanes, and miles of land have not yet been acquired.
  • The road should have opened three years ago.
  • The journey from the capital to the rose-hued sandstone tourist town can take six bumpy hours and is a symbol of the challenges Modi faces to kick-start Asia’s third-largest economy.
