Recently, NHAI representatives and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari met to discuss various facets of building the National Highways. According to (Press Trust of India) PTI, the minister underlined that it is crucial to carefully compile the detailed project report (DPR) in order to reduce project delays, lower construction costs, and execute optimal road alignment.
According to the official statement, different conversations on how to implement cutting-edge technologies, overcome challenges, and improve job efficiency took place during the conference.
'RajmargYatra' and 'NHAI One' are two new mobile applications that Gadkari has released.
Gadkari also introduced two mobile applications that will make it easier to commute on national highways. RajmargYatra and NHAI One are these mobile programmes. According to PTI, the first, RajmargYatra, is a citizen-focused app with a built-in complaint redressal system, while the latter, NHAI One, will facilitate the majority of the essential onsite requirements in carrying out National Highway Projects.
The minister urged National Highways Authority of India(NHAI) employees to create an international standard national highway network in India. Road connectivity in the nation has advanced significantly, from green lanes to road over bridges. The nation's national highway system, which had a total length of 97,830 km in 2014–15, will now have 45,155 km by March 2023, according to government data.
Focusing on the development of National Highways is crucial since, according to reports, highways carry about 85% of all passengers and 70% of all goods traffic annually. The speed of National Highways development has reportedly accelerated between 2014–15 and 2021–22, according to a previous PTI article.
