The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on 4 May 2016 gave its approval for development of two laning with formation of four lane of Shimla Bypass (Kaithlighat to Shimla section) on National Highway-22 in Himachal Pradesh.

The main objective of the project is to expedite the improvement of infrastructure in Himachal Pradesh and also in reducing the time and cost of travel for traffic, particularly heavy traffic, plying on the Kaithlighat to Shimla section on National Highway-22. However, the approval for the project is in Hybrid Annuity Mode.

The work will be completed under the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) Phase-III. The total length of the road will be approximately 28 kilometres.

The cost for the project is estimated to be 1583.18 crore rupees. The cost includes cost of land acquisition, resettlement and rehabilitation and other pre-construction activities.

It has been estimated that a total number of 4076 mandays are required for construction of one kilometre of highway. As such, employment potential of approximately 111914 mandays will be generated locally during the construction period of this stretch.

The development of this stretch will also help in uplifting the socio-economic condition of the concerned regions of the State and would also increase employment potential for local labourers for project activities.
