The project includes all the mitigation measures needed to protect wildlife and the environment. The provisions of animal underpass in the wildlife sanctuaries area will facilitate movement of wildlife.

The total length of the project is 12.38 km. Its construction will cost Rs 417 crore 51 lakh. The construction work of the project will be completed in a period of 18 months. 

In order to reduce the impact of widening of this route on the movement/habitat of wild animals, 5 large animal underpasses (100m., 420m., 1226m., 65m. and 65m.) and 2 small animal underpasses (10m. and 10 m.) sub-structures will be made. A minor bridge and 2 vehicle underpasses are also to be constructed in the project.
