Krishnagiri-Thopur (Tamil Nadu)

The 86-km long four-lane divided road from Krishnagiri to Thopurghat on NH-7 in Tamil Nadu connects the two major districts of the state - Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri. L&T Krishnagiri Thopurghat Toll Road Limited (L&T KTTRL) is a matured road asset. This project involved the up gradation and widening of the existing road from Krishnagiri (on BOT basis), which bypasses the en route towns like Dharmapuri, Kaveripattanam and Periyampatti on its way to Salem - Bangalore. This INR 5.25 billion project SPV is a 100% shareholding venture of L&T IDPL, which commissioned the road for commercial operations ahead of the scheduled completion date, in February 2009. As per the Concession Agreement signed with NHAI, the SPV will be responsible for toll collection, operations and maintenance of the road stretch till the end of the 20-year concession period.
