NHAI and DMRC Forge Strategic Partnership to Elevate National Highway Network and Safety Protocols

The MoU focuses on several key aspects, including the review of bridge and structure designs, safety considerations for NHAI projects, and the capacity building of NHAI officials

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) took a significant step towards advancing its National Highways network by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). The MoU focuses on several key aspects, including the review of bridge and structure designs, safety considerations for NHAI projects, and the capacity building of NHAI officials.

The signing ceremony was graced by the presence of NHAI Chairman Santosh Kumar Kadav and Dr. Vikas Kumar, Managing Director of DMRC, alongside other senior officials from both organizations. This collaborative effort aims to bolster NHAI’s “Design Division,” which is responsible for scrutinizing the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of bridges, structures, tunnels, and retaining walls on National Highways throughout the nation.

Under the terms of this agreement, DMRC will provide its expertise to NHAI for evaluating the designs of all bridges and structures within ongoing projects. Additionally, the agreement includes the review of designs for randomly selected bridges, structures, tunnels, retaining walls, and other specialized structures. DMRC will also assist NHAI in evaluating stand-alone bridges and special structures during the Detailed Project Report (DPR) stage.

Furthermore, DMRC will support NHAI in reviewing construction methodologies, temporary structures, lifting and launching methods, pre-stressing techniques for select bridges and structures, as well as specialized structures on a random basis.

In an effort to enhance the capabilities of NHAI officials, DMRC will organize tailored training programs. These programs will cover various aspects such as design, construction, supervision, maintenance, and safety considerations related to elevated structures and bridges.

This collaboration is set to remain in effect for a period of two years. It signifies a strong partnership between two government organizations aimed at sharing best practices and working together to improve the nation’s transportation infrastructure network, thereby contributing to the overarching goal of nation-building.
