He was speaking at the launch of the Indian highways capacity manual that talks about road construction code, traffic management and construction capacity of highways. “Our officials and department lag behind the world when it comes to construction of roads.

The speed of highway construction is not as high as it should be,” he said. “We must give up our conservative approach towards adopting new technology. Why can’t we have the same road construction pace as the US, Germany and other western countries.”

  1. Agree with Gadkari ji. Road construction has to be of superior long lasting quality like the British built for us to last a 100 years …foresight is necessary to decide the width of roads (no of lanes , safety to last a lifetime). But with technology like he US and Germany construction has to speed up with least inconvenience …BUT DURABILITY should be the key
