Navayuga Engineering Company has sold its equity stake in Navayuga Quazigund Expressway to National Investment and Infrastructure Fund Limited (NIIF).
Navayuga Quazigund Expressway Private Limited (NQEPL) is a four-lane 16.3 km expressway between Quazigund and Banihal, a section of NH-1A that includes a bi-directional 8.5 km continuous twin-tube tunnel stretch, one of the longest highway tunnels in India. The road provides a vital link between the two important cities in the region, Jammu and Srinagar, enabling seamless movement of traffic and goods, with enhanced inter-region connectivity. The road facilitates traffic movement in all weather conditions throughout the year and reduces significant travel time between the two cities.
NQEPL is one of the largest annuity projects awarded by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) on a BOT (build-operate-transfer) basis. This project receives fixed, semi-annual payments from NHAI, providing stable and predictable cash flows.
