DIMAPUR — The National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd. (NHIDCL) has updated that it is “putting a lot of hard work behind every smooth ride” on the “two-lane with paved shoulder of Kohima-Bypass Road connecting NH-39 (New NH-02), NH-150 (New NH-02), NH-61 (New NH-29) and NH-39 (New NH-02) from design km10.500 to 21.00 km (design length- 10.500 km) (Pkg.- 2) incl. (tunnel of 0.500 km)”.

Updating this on X (formerly Twitter), the NHIDCL claimed that it has diligently undertaken the construction of the two-lane Kohima-Bypass road with paved shoulder.

As per the current project status report, INR 177 crore has been awarded for the estimated INR 277.44 crore project with a total length of 10.5 km.


It was awarded on September 25, 2020 and appointed on October 15, 2020.

According to the status report, the project implemented by the M/s Bharat Construction Pvt. Ltd has made a physical progress of 57.61% with financial progress of 54.65%.


The original date for completion of the project was October 15, 2022, but it was delayed by nearly two years due to alleged land acquisition issue. Now, the project is likely to be completed by July 31, 2024.

In May 2023, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, took to X to inform that the primary objective of the project was to enhance connectivity with other states in the northeast region, providing fast, sustainable and cost-effective mobility options to all commuters.

“This project underscores the commitment to delivering world-class highway infrastructure to the northeast and accelerating its economic growth,” wrote Gadkari.
