GRC-2022 brings together the leaders from Government Institutions, Corporates, and Academia for a power-packed day of stimulating deliberations on innovative technologies, materials, and safety in the Road Construction sector with over 400 delegates from India and overseas. Mark your calendar for GRC-2022, 30th Nov’ 22, Taj Palace, New Delhi. India’s road network growth is witnessing a transformation in its speed and scale of development.
This embodies Honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s vision of Speed and Scale of progress. It encompasses national highways, State highways, and rural roads. The government aims to construct 100 km of roads per day over the next two years. The budgetary disbursement has increased from INR 33,414 crores (Financial Year 2015) to INR 1,83,101 crores (Financial Year 2022). Roads and infrastructure construction are pivotal to India’s growth story.
The Ministry of Road Construction and Highways (MoRTH) has set a scorching pace of development in the construction of highways as part of its pivotal role in developing the Indian economy. India’s national highway construction slowed to 28.64 km a day in 2021-22 due to COVID-19 pandemic-related disruptions and a longer-than-usual monsoon in some parts of the country. Overcoming all constraints, the targeted growth of highway construction would be among the best road construction rates in the world, reflecting the Speed and Scale vision in the truest sense.
