DCI to Dredge Sand for Highways Construction

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed yesterday between Dredging Corporation of India (DCI) and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for facilitating the supply of sand for highways construction work.

The Government reported that concessionaires working on highways projects have been facing a shortage of sand at many sites. This MoU aims to fill this gap by facilitating the availability of sand for these concessionaires.

According to DCI, the company is planning to do dredging operations at locations in South East Asia, generating large volumes of sand.

This dredging will be done for the purpose of obtaining sand. As per the MoU, business intermediaries will ship and store this sand at various ports in India.

NHAI will facilitate the process by displaying the availability of sand at various stockyards at the ports.
