NHIDCL has undertaken two-laning of Pasighat-Mariyang-Yingkiang (NH-513) from Singer river to Sijon river section 19.880 km to 43.257 km in Arunachal Pradesh. At present, construction work by the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation is progressing well on the road project.
The road stretch in length of 23.777 km is being executed on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis.
In 2015, Ashoka Buildcon-Bhartia Infra Projects consortium bagged contract order worth Rs 179.82 crore to execute the project. A year later in June 2016, the contractor commenced work on the project.
As of date, around 70 percent work on the highway has been completed. The two-lane Pasighat-Mariyang-Yingkiang road is set for completion by March 2019, an official was quoted as saying by Projects Today.
