Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has said all the roads in the country would be converted into cement-concrete ones to ensure their stability and durability.
“In Mumbai, the cement concrete roads built 20 years ago are still in a good shape. But some political leaders, bureaucrats and contractors do not wish that such roads should be constructed in Mumbai,” Gadkari said last night at an event in Vashi in neighbouring Navi Mumbai.
“These people feel that tarred roads should be made and potholes should surface on them from time to time,” said.
“All the roads in the country would be converted into cement concrete ones. And I guarantee that they will last for 200 years,” he added.
The minister was speaking while inaugurating ‘Prawaas 2017′ – India International Bus and Car Travel Show.’
