 The 62 km long Tonk – Sawaimadhopur section would be executed on EPC mode and completed in 2 years from the date of commencement of the project.  The project will have bypasses at 4 locations of a length of 12 km, 15 minor bridges, 3 Vehicular Underpasses and adequate safety features.

This road connects two important National Highways i.e. NH-12 and NH-116.  The project starts from Tonk City on NH-1116 at km 1.300 and ends at km 69.750 of NH-116 at Sawaimadhopur.   It traverses two important districts of Rajasthan, i.e. Tonk and Sawaimadhopur, an important town with its own history with marvellous architectural monuments, ponds and lakes. Sawaimadhopur is the gateway to the Ranthambhor National Park.  Development of the section would reduce the travel time to this world-renowned National Park, the famous tiger reserve and promote tourism in the region.
