Technology Intervention in Roads and Highways
The roads sector has witnessed a strong growth trajectory as the government has awarded projects spanning about 50,000 km in the past five years, doubling the pace of construction to about 32 km per day. Though the pandemic has had a serious impact on this sector in the past two years, a number of measures have been announced to mitigate the impact of the crisis.
Today, the sector continues to offer significant opportunities as a total capital investment of Rs20 trillion has been planned for the road sector during 2020-25 under the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP).
In the current scenario, has the pandemic impacted faster adoption of technology in road construction? And are Indian roads contractors, developers and investors ready to adopt global technology advancements for better quality?
This was the topic of one of the panel discussions of the 11th India Roads Conference at the 7th India Construction Festival held on October 22, at Hotel Four Seasons in Mumbai.
