    Govt plans ​construction of concrete roads by entering into long-term contracts with cement majors

    The highways ministry is looking at entering into long-term contracts with cement majors across the country to purchase the construction material at a lower cost and shift to concrete roads, which are seen to be more durable although they cost more than those made using bitumen.

    Road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari who had announced his support for concrete the day he took charge, has already ordered a cost analysis. As per sources the average upfront investment for concrete roads could be around 15% higher than bitumen roads.
