India aims to develop an efficient, eco-friendly mobility network while fostering a holistic infrastructure.

The Indian government is making significant strides to energise our road and highway transportation infrastructure through various projects commenced and completed under the Parvatmala and Bharatmala Paryojana. Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Government of India, elaborated on the ongoing highway construction projects and mentioned the 4-laning of the Sinnar-Shirdi section of NH-160. It includes the construction of the Sinnar Bypass, in Maharashtra.

In a series of tweets, he termed it as a transformative project that holds immense social significance, as it will serve as a dedicated route, or ‘Marg,’ for Sai Baba devotees making their pilgrimage to Shirdi on foot. Additionally, it is poised to act as an economic catalyst, propelling rapid development in the surrounding areas.

One of the primary objectives of this initiative is to substantially reduce the travel time between Shirdi and Nashik/Trimbakeshwar; the two major religious towns in Maharashtra. Furthermore, in line with our steadfast commitment to sustainability, the project incorporates various noteworthy techniques to minimise the carbon footprint and alleviate traffic congestion.

However, notable practices include the utilisation of plastic waste in the construction of service roads, the application of Cement Treated Base (CTB) and Cement Treated Sub Base (CTSB), as well as the use of ‘RAP’ (Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement) for the road’s surface.

Furthermore, under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India’s unwavering commitment lies in creating a more efficient and eco-friendly mobility network while fostering the holistic development of the region.
