Impactful Increase in the Rate of Highway Construction in 2017-18

The National Highways Authority of India, an autonomous body that aims to ensure proper functioning of the national highways in India has been the primary contributor to the major changes witnessed in the highway construction and operation. In comparison to the last fiscal year, the rate of highway construction experienced a significant spike with 27 km/day which was 22.5 km/day last term. While this difference in the hike might not seem like a major one, it is definitely an achievement that is gradually gaining momentum to secure even better outcomes and results.

With the rate increasing to 27km/day, the clocked growth rate was that of 20% in comparison to last year’s. Even though the rate is rapidly increasing, the same is not even close to the visions of the Indian Government. They expect the rate to surpass the 40 km/day mark which is definitely going to take a bit more time. The government has time and time emphasised the importance of the roads and highway projects which is what

Lane-Kilometer – A New Concept to Measure Highways Introduce by NHAI & MORTH

Lane-Kilometer – A New Concept to Measure Highways Introduce by NHAI & MORTH

 Increasing traffic flow has forced the highway authority of India to increase the number of lane of highways in order to provide good manoeuvring facilities to the users. To analyse the level of service of various types of highway facilities, the important parameter is Free-flow speed.  It is the speed at which drivers feel comfortable to travel under the physical, environmental and traffic conditions existing on an uncongested section of multilane highway.

So for the Modi Government, highway construction has been a priority. In the fiscal year of the 2017-18 highway construction industry hits 20% growth over the previous fiscal year but yet not able to hit the scorching pace of the government’s target. In the recent years, the highway construction rate is approximately 6,234km/year.

NHAI Introduces Aesthetic Lights to Glow Kota ‘Hanging Bridge’

Indian highways until now have been unable to cope up with the increasing size, weight, and number of vehicles. Congestion became commonplace with morning and evening rush hour traffic accumulating in narrow roads. Moreover, peak-hour traffic on bridges goes beyond the capacity of the general two-lane roads in India. Therefore, out of concern for the safety of the decaying bridge/ roads/ highways, construction of a new substitute is urgently needed.

Focusing on the agenda, in the recent past, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a six-lane bridge over Chambal River in Kota, Rajasthan. This long-awaited ‘Hanging Bridge’ benefits the residents of Hadouti region of Rajasthan and also helps to ease the traffic congestion in Kota city. Union Minister of Roads Transport and Highways, Mr Nitin Gadkari mentions that the new hanging bridge connects 14 National Highways passing through seven states and 28 prime cities of India.
