National Highways : The Path Ahead

INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT is absolutely critical for India’s economic growth and for sustainable development. Building world class infrastructure is a pre-condition for attaining a sustained growth of 7% to 8% per annum, which is needed to improve the quality of life of the citizens. Road connectivity holds the key to infrastructural development, especially for a country of such vast proportions as India. The share of road in total traffic is growing everyday. The rapid expansion and strengthening of the road network, therefore, is imperative, both to provide for present and future traffic and for improved accessibility to the hinterland. In addition, road transport needs to be regulated for better energy efficiency, lesser pollution and enhanced road safety.

At about 3.3 million kilometers, India has the second largest road network in the world. Of this, the highway network accounts for about 2 %, with a total length of 66,754 km, but carries about 40% of the total traffic. At present, 14% of national highways are 4 or 6 lane, about 59% two-lane and 27% single lane. The existing network has inadequate capacity to handle high traffic density in many places and suffers from poor riding quality.
