Government plans to extend national highways' length to 2 lakh km: 6 Asian Highways you probably didn't know about

14 February 2016  

Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways, announced that the government has decided to increase the length of national highways from 96,000 kilometres, at present, to two lakh kilometres.

"At present, we have 96,000 km national highways or 52 lakh road length in the country. As much as 40 percent of the traffic moves on these 2 percent national highways and as a result five lakh accidents take place," Gadkari told.

"Three lakh people get injured and 1.5 lakh are killed in these accidents. The main reason is traffic congestion. Therefore, to save lives of people and diversify traffic, our government has decided to extend national highways from 96,000 kilometres to two lakh kilometres. Nearly 70 percent to 80 percent traffic of the country move on this," he added.

As per the reports, two new highways would be developed in Uttar Pradesh. The first is the east-west highway on which the government is going to spend Rs 1400 crore. This will reduce Delhi's traffic by 50 percent. The second one is from Delhi to Dasna, which would be 14 lane, a first time in the country.

Lucknow-Kanpur access control highway has also been planned, which would reduce travel time to 40 minutes.

With this announcement, we tell you about six Asian highways in India you probably don't know about:

AH42

The length of the road is 3,754km. It connects Lanzhou, the capital of Gansu Province, China to Barhi in Jharkhand. This is the nearest Asian highway to Mount Everest and it passes through Lhasa in Tibet and Kathmandu in Nepal.

AH43

This road is 3,024km long. It connects Agra to Matara in Sri Lanka. To reach Sri Lanka via this road, one needs to take a ferry ride from Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu.

AH45

The 2,030-km road connects Kolkata to Bengaluru. The road provides one with a beautiful view from the East Coast. A plan to extend it from Doha in Qutar to Jakarta, Indonesia, is under way, and it may get done by 2030.

AH46

Named as Great Eastern Highway in India, this 1,967-km road connects Hazirah in Gujarat to Howrah in West Bengal via Surat and Jalgaon. The road crosses five states such as West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra.

AH47

The road's length is 2,057 km. It runs from Gwalior to Bengaluru. The road passes through cities such as Dhule, Thane, Mumbai and Belgaum.

AH48

The 90-km stretch, locally known as the SAARC Road, connects Phuentsholing in Bhutan to Indo-Bangladesh border point at Changrabandha in Cooch Behar, West Bengal via Dooars. Some parts of this road is still under construction.

ඉන්දියාව ලංකාව යා කරන අධිවේගී මගක් ගැන කතාවක්

ඉන්දියාව හා ලංකාව යා කෙරෙන අධිවේගී මාර්ගයක් සම්බන්ධ කතාවක් යළි කරළියට පැමිණ තිබේ.

ඒ කිලෝමීටර් 96,000ක්ව පවතින ඉන්දීය අධිවේගී මාර්ග ජාලය කිලෝමීටර් ලක්ෂ 2ක් දක්වා වැඩි දියුණු කිරීමට නියමිත බවට ඉන්දීය මාර්ග, ප්‍රවාහන හා අධිවේගි මාර්ග පිළිබඳ අමාත්‍ය නිතින් ගද්කාරි විසින් කරන ලද ප්‍රකාශයක් නිසාය.

ගද්කාරි පවසා ඇත්තේ මේ අධිවේගී මාර්ගය ඉන්දියාවේ උත්තර ප්‍රදේශයෙන් ආරම්භ වන බවත්, එය නාග්පූර්, හද්‍රාබාද්, බැංගලෝර්, ක්‍රිෂ්ණගිරි, මදුරෙයි, ධනුෂ්කොඩිය පසුගිකරමින් තලෙයි මන්නාරම, කොළඹ, ගාල්ල හරහා මාතර ප්‍රදේශයෙන් අවසන් වන බවයි.

මේ අධිවේගී මගෙහි මුළු දුර කිලෝමීටර් 3,024ක් වන අතර, ආසියානු අධිවේගී මාර්ග ජාලයෙහි එක් අධිවේගී මාර්ගයක් ලෙස මෙය සැලැසුම් කර තිබේ.

එම අධිවේගී මගේ සිතියම පහත දැක්වේ.
