IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd today said it has signed an agreement with National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for four-laning of NH-17 from Goa/ Karnataka Border up to Kundapur, with the project cost estimated at Rs 2,600 crore.

"The Project is to be executed on DBFOT (toll) pattern with a concession period of 28 years... Estimated project cost is approximately Rs 2,600 crore and the construction is to be completed within 910 days from the appointed date," IRB said in a filing to the BSE.
