India’s road network development programme is facing a series of delays with several major projects now well behind schedule.

In all 22 road projects stretching some 1,239km and worth a total of US$2.84 billion, WorldHighways reports.

The contracts for the 22 projects were awarded from July 2016 to October 2016 but construction work is yet to commence.

For most of the projects, the delays are due to hold-ups in obtaining the necessary environmental permits, securing financing and finalising the acquisition of the land on which the various routes will be built.
