Upgrades[edit]

Four-laning between Hissar and Rohtak[edit]

As of 2016 June, a special purpose vehicle, Rohtak-Hissar Tollway Pvt Ltd, completed the widening of the stretch from Hissar to Rohtak to four lanes (two lanes in each direction with wide paved shoulders and a tree-lined median in the middle). The concession period for the project, including the construction period, is 22 years.[2]

The National Highways Authority of India's National Highways Development Project NHAI NHDP Phase-3 project has acquired additional 591.84 hectares of land for road widening and building:

Four-laning between Hisar to Sirsa and Dabwali[edit]

The project in Build–operate–transfer (BOT) toll road mode is on a design, built, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) pattern, having a concession period of 24 years including a 2.5 years construction period. The project was started in 2015 and is progressing at a good pace. The project is expected to be completed on time. It also covers the following:[3]

  • 1 railway over-bridge (ROB)
  • 10 flyovers
  • 1 major bridges
  • 11 minor bridge
  • Sirsa bypass

Safety[edit]

Safety improvements undertaken by NHAI and PWD since 2012 have resulted in a decline in road fatalities on NH10. Scheduled improvements include rumble strips, additional signage, and reflective markers.[4]

Popular media[edit]

The Bollywood thriller movie NH10 produced by Anushka Sharma is based on a story of travel on the National Highway 10. However, the condition of the highway is much better than as compared to what was shown in the movie, and it does not pass through Gurgaon.
