New highways with modern facilities planned in India

India is planning to develop major new highway projects, including the construction of an electric highway.

The installation of electric vehicle infrastructure for a highway project connecting Delhi and Jaipur, Rajasthan, aims to reduce emissions and improve transportation efficiency between the two cities.

The goal is for trucks and buses to be able to travel along the route using electric power rather than diesel engines.

Full details have yet to be revealed, but the information so far suggests that trucks and buses could be powered by overhead lines, similar to locomotives and trams, with pantographs on the roof. India's Road Transport and Highways Ministry is discussing the project with an international firm.

The highway connecting Delhi and Mumbai is currently under construction. Four lanes will be available in each direction.

Delhi will be connected to Gujarat, as well as Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Haryana, via this route.

The project, which is expected to cost up to $13.2 billion and be completed in March 2023, will help reduce travel times between the various cities along the route.

Links to the Noida International Airport and the Jawaharlal Nehru Port will be a key feature of the expressway.

In addition, a contract for a section of the new expressway connecting Bangalore and Chennai has been awarded.

In each direction, the expressway will have two lanes. The section between Bangarupalem and Gudipala will be built by Dilip Buildcon at $142.6 million. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) awarded the contract.
