The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is embarking on an ambitious project to construct four lanes of National Highway 5 (NH-5) in the state of Himachal Pradesh. This project, which is currently in progress, includes the construction of four lanes of NH-5 (old NH-22) from Kaithlighat to Shakral village (Package-I from 128.835 km to 146.300 km for design length-17.465 km) in Himachal Pradesh, to be undertaken in Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM). The estimated completion date for this project is the end of 2025.

The significance of this project cannot be overstated, as it will connect the Shimla-Rekongpio road by various tunnels and road sections, thereby reducing travel time and easing traffic congestion in the area. The road will serve as a bypass to the outskirts of Shimla city, and will be of great benefit to the thousands of people who travel on this route every day.

Currently, survey work is ongoing for the construction site, in order to properly assess the topography and soil conditions of the area, and to determine the most efficient and cost-effective method of construction. This is a crucial step in the planning and execution of the project, and will ensure that the final product meets the highest standards of safety and quality.

The National Highways Authority of India is committed to delivering this project on schedule and within budget, and is utilizing the latest technology and equipment to ensure that the project is completed to the highest standards. The construction of four-laning of NH-5 is a significant step towards improving transportation infrastructure in the state of Himachal Pradesh and will greatly benefit the local economy by providing better connectivity and reducing travel time and traffic congestion on the road. The NHAI will continue to work closely with all stakeholders and the local community to ensure that the project is completed with minimal disruption to their daily lives.
