The new concessionaire is expected to be in place by May.  
The ground work for the project will be launched in November and most of the sections will be thrown open for public travel in four years, while the whole project is expected to be completed in five years.

The companies/consortia qualified to participate in financial bids  are: Transstroy-OJSC Transstroy (Russia)-CR18G (China)-BEML  consortium; Reliance Infra-Reliance Infocomm consortium (ADAG); Lanco  Infra-OHL Concesiones (Spain) consortium; Essar-Leighton  (Australia)-Gayatri-VNR consortium; GMR Infra; GVK-Samsung (South  Korea) consortium; Soma-Strabag AG (Austria) consortium and Larsen & Toubro.
