Gadkari said that through the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP), the government is investing 111 lakh crore in infrastructure development. This year, the government increased infrastructure Capex by 34% year on year to 5.54 lakh crore.
The minister said that the ministry is working to develop opportunities for clean and green transportation fuels such as electricity, bio-CNG, LNG, biodiesel, ethanol, methanol, and hydrogen fuel cells.
The project stretch of NH-50 runs through the Maharashtra districts of Pune, Ahmednagar, and Nashik. The Golden Triangle of Mumbai, Pune, and Nashik has been identified as a potential development hub.
The NH-50 section between Pune and Nashik primarily serves long-distance traffic, with a significant contribution of trailers or containers, as well as passenger traffic visiting various pilgrimage centres near Pune and Nashik.
Khed, Manchar, Sangamner, and Sinner are important cities and towns along the way.
