10 construction firms have submitted a total of 24 bids to construct packages 1-3 of the 405 km Nagpur – Vijayawada Economic Corridor’s 112 km Mancherial – Warangal section in Telangana.
This new 4 lane access-controlled highway by National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will have a mix of greenfield and brownfield-upgraded sections with an alignment passing by Adilabad, Mancherial, Warangal and Khammam.
Construction of its Mancherial – Warangal greenfield corridor connecting connecting Narva, Puttapaka, Pangidipalle and Oorugonda will be carried out under the Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-I program (Lot-4/Package-7) with a goal to improve the efficiency of freight movement and boost exports via port connectivity.
