The statement "The project is almost complete, except for about 50 to 80 km sections in West Bengal and Orissa" is not completely accurate. As per NHAI for the Kolkata - Chennai stretch (http://www.nhai.org/nh5.asp) only a 1,7 km long bridge is incomplete in West Bengal. About 170 kms is under implementation in Orissa. Similarly for the Delhi Kolkata stretch (http://www.nhai.org/nh2.asp) more than 200 kms are under implementation in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. For the Mumbai Chennai section about 80 kms are still under implementation in Karnataka state (http://www.nhai.org/nh4.asp). The Delhi Mumbai stretch (http://www.nhai.org/nh8.asp) is the only one that is complete. The summary of the Golden Quadrilateral project is here http://www.nhai.org/gqimplementation.asp. As far as the NSEW stretches are concerned, the progress has been slow as mentioned in the article (http://www.nhai.org/completednsew.asp). This data is as of Jan 31, 2010..
