Road Ministry Sets Record Target Of Constructing 40 KM Highways Per Day To Build 12,000 KM Network In FY20

The Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday (4 June) said that the target for highway building in the current financial year (2019-20) will be 12,000 km, which is higher than the 10,800 km achieved in the 2018-19 financial year, reports Economic Times.

This, if achieved, will catapult the per day highway construction figure to 40 km per day. That would be significantly high compared to the highest per day highway building of 32 km per day achieved in the previous year.

It should be noted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had promised in its manifesto for the just culminated Lok Sabha elections that if it came back to power, it will be building 60,000 km of national highways over the next five years. Read More
