  • The road sector has been on a strong growth trajectory for the past few years. Models such as hybrid annuity and toll-operate-transfer lent support to the government’s ambitious plans. During FY2016 to FY2019, the ministry awarded projects spanning about 50,000 km. The pace of construction almost doubled to about 32 km per day during the same period.
  • However, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on the sector, resulting in stalled project execution and revenue losses on account of suspension of toll collection. Many developers and contractors have also invoked the force majeure clause. The pandemic is likely to have a strong impact on NHAI’s asset monetisation strategy through InvITs and TOT.
  • A number of measures have been announced to mitigate the impact of the crisis. The government has extended completion timelines up to six months for contractors. Besides, a standstill period of six months has been announced for contractors and PPP concessionaires, with no penalties for not meeting project milestones. The government has also agreed to ease companies’ cash flow stress by partially releasing bank guarantees. RBI has provided a moratorium of six months on term loans up to August 31, 2020. In addition to time extensions, NHAI is offering a Covid-19 loan to private concessionaires at an interest rate of 2 per cent more than the bank rate.
  • Nonetheless, the sector continues to offer significant opportunities under Bharatmala. The National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) has also laid out expansive investment targets. As per the report released by the Task Force on NIP, a total capital investment of Rs 20 trillion has been planned for the road sector during 2020-25.
  • Besides, the road sector is expected to be biggest driver of M&A activity in the next few years. Asset sales dominated M&A activity, accounting for 99 per cent of the total deal value. A total of 46 road assets have been sold for around Rs 440 billion between 2014 and 2020 (as of April).
  • While there are several operational projects that the government has identified for monetisation, the ongoing HAM projects will also offer lucrative acquisition opportunities for investors three to four years down the line. The TOT model will continue to offer opportunities for long-term investors. Initial estimates suggest that Bundles II, IV, V and VI together offer an investment opportunity of Rs 190 billion-Rs 200 billion.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the emerging trends and new opportunities in road development, analyse the impact and progress of recent government initiatives in light of Covid-19, identify strategies and solutions to fast-track project execution, discuss the key issues and potential solutions, and showcase the most noteworthy projects and promising technologies. The conference will also provide a platform to industry players, policymakers, investors, consultants and technology providers to share their experience and exchange ideas.
