To encourage competition and speedy execution of projects, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) intents to split the Eastern Peripheral project expressway into six packages. This is part of a larger strategy under which two more expressways are likely to be bid out in a similar way. NHAI has floated three separate bids of shorter stretches for the Eastern Peripheral, which is likely to cover 135 km between Sonipat in Haryana to Palwal in Uttar Pradesh, bypassing Delhi. Beside splitting the Eastern Peripheral Expressway worth Rs 3,500-4,000 crore into six, the Delhi-Meerut Expressway worth Rs 6,500 crore might be split into three.
