Goa's PWD adopts cutting-edge 'white-topped' smart roads

In a bid to revolutionise road infrastructure, Goa's Public Works Department (PWD) is delving into the implementation of 'white-topped' smart roads. This innovative technology not only promises to extend the lifespan of roads by almost 30 years but also addresses the persistent challenge of potholes, providing a sustainable solution for the state's road network.

The introduction of 'white-topped' smart roads marks a significant departure from conventional road construction methods. This technology involves the application of a special type of concrete, known for its durability and resistance to wear and tear. The resulting roads are expected to withstand the rigours of weather and vehicular traffic, minimizing the need for frequent repairs.

Goa's PWD's proactive approach to adopting advanced road construction techniques aligns with the state's commitment to enhancing infrastructure and ensuring a smoother, more resilient transportation network. The implementation of 'white-topped' smart roads is poised to bring about a positive transformation, offering a sustainable solution to the longstanding issue of potholes and contributing to the overall quality of road infrastructure in Goa.
