The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has embarked on a strategic partnership with the Geological Survey of India (GSI) to fortify the development of a robust National Highways network.

Formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the collaboration aims to leverage GSI’s expertise in geotechnical consultancy to enhance the quality of construction and ensure the longevity of the highways. The MoU signing ceremony witnessed the participation of NHAI Chairman, Shri Santosh Kumar Yadav, and Dr. Saibal Ghosh, Deputy Director General of Geological Survey of India, alongside other senior officials from both entities.

Under the agreement, GSI will offer site-specific geotechnical consultancy services, including the creation of geological maps, comprehensive slope stability studies, identification of geologically vulnerable zones along National Highways, and the proposal of tailored remedial measures. Additionally, GSI will conduct 3D geological logging of tunnels within projects and meticulously analyse Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) prepared by NHAI consultants.

This collaborative initiative represents a commendable exchange of best practices between two governmental bodies, fostering a synergy that is anticipated to significantly contribute to the construction quality of National Highways. Beyond construction, the initiative is expected to streamline operations and maintenance processes, ensuring a seamless travel experience for users of the National Highways. This concerted effort underscores a commitment to excellence in infrastructure development and sets a precedent for effective inter-agency cooperation.
