Ministry Of Road Transport Deploys Mobile Inspection Vans For Quality Inspection Of National Highways

The government has engaged the services of Mobile Inspection Vans (MIVs) for Quality Inspection of National Highways through Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) in four States – Gujarat, Rajasthan, Odisha and Karnataka – on a Pilot basis as part of the Road Transport Ministry’s commitment towards constructing National Highways with global quality standards.

Use of these MIVs will augment the existing quality control and quality acceptance systems of NH works by introducing a more proactive approach for identifying issues related to quality.

Quarterly 2,000 km of NH projects will be inspected in each state using these MIVs. Inspections would be conducted in various projects being implemented by NHAI/ NHIDCL/State PWDs and other executing agencies of the Ministry.

The Contract Agreement for Gujarat was signed today. Contract Agreement for Rajasthan, Odisha and Karnataka will be signed soon. More such vans shall be engaged in other states in future.

Test Results generated as well as alerts for the non-conformity through these MIVs shall be shared with various stakeholders on a real-time basis through a Quality Control Portal, which is being developed by the Ministry.
