Highway building to pick up

01 Aug 2022

As input prices are anticipated to stay high, India's national highway building will likely only reach 32-34 km per day during the current fiscal year, Crisil has reportedly released. It anticipates a pick-up in highway building after the monsoon. Due to the COVID-19 disruption and a longer-than-usual monsoon in some regions of the country, highway construction slowed to 28.64 km per day in 2021-22. In 2020-21, the construction rate reached a record-high 37 km per day.
