The decisions were taken at a meeting with union minister for road transport and highways Oscar Fernandes in New Delhi.

The budget allocation under the head 'national highway (original)' had been hiked from `44 crore to `110 crore, Hooda said.

The six-lane flyover will be constructed at Hero Honda Chowk on the Delhi-Jaipur road for about `100 crore and completed in 15 months.

On the NH-1 (Delhi-Panipat-Ambala), Fernandes said the construction work of the flyover at Bahalgarh Chowk and widening of the bridge near Rasoi village would be awarded to a contractor before December 31.

The allocation had been enhanced for the maintenance and upkeep of the national highways in the state, the chief minister said, adding that Fernandes approved a proposal to construct a highway from Jhajjar to Dwarka in Delhi via Dhansa border on Najafgarh drain for about `100 crore, under the central road fund (inter-state connectivity).

Fernandes directed National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) officers to improve the maintenance level of national highways apart from completing the projects on time.
