Four-laning Between Hissar and Rohtak[edit]

In 2012, the Public-Private Partnership Approval Committee of the Union Government has okayed four-laning of the Rohtak-Hansi-Hisar section of National Highway-10 bringing the far-flung areas of Haryana closer to the National Capital Region. The work for widening of the 98.89-km long road passing through the heart of the State would begin soon with the National Highways Authority of India likely to float the tender soon. Five bypasses will be constructed under the Rs.959.25-crore project that is expected to ease traffic in Hansi, Meham, Kharkada, Madina and Rohtak and boost the economy. [2][3] In March 2013, contract was awarded to the Sudhbhav Engineering.[4]

In addition to four laning the 99 km stretch connecting Rohtak to Haryana, a link road connecting NH 10 to NH 71 will also be built. Concession period for the project is 22 years. Commissioning of the project is slated for June 2016.[5]

On 28 July 2013, Oscar Fernandes, Union Minister for road transport and highways has laid the foundation stone for 4-lane of the 99 km long Hisar-Rohtak section of national highway No 10. [6] Same day, Mallikarjun Kharge, Union Railway Minister, has laid the foundation stone for the Hansi-Meham-Rohtak railway line track on 28 July 2013. The project includes 68 km long Hansi-Meham-Rohtak railway line costing Rs 500 crore. It comprises eight stations, four railway underbridges, four crossing stations and four halt stations. The project will be completed in five years.[7]

Four-laning Between Hisar to Sirsa & Dabwali[edit]

In July 2013, Haryana Govt said that the work on Rs 1500 crore project to four- lane National Highway No. 10 from Hisar to Dabwali in district Sirsa of Haryana has been started and all the bridges located on this national highway would be widened and a 4-lane bye-pass would also be constructed in Sirsa city. [8]

Safety[edit]

NHAI and PWD have taken safety measures that has resulted in the decline in road fatalities on NH10. Installation of rumble strips to slow down traffic has proved very effective in reducing accident deaths. Further PWD is yet to install cautionary road signs, catseye, fluorescent indicators to aid in improving the safety on the stretch.[9]

Popular Media[edit]

The bollywood thriller movie NH10 produced by Anushka Sharma is based on a story of travel on the National Highway 10.
