Better Roads for a Developing India


The Indian economy is booming, trade is increasing and the standard of living is going up. This has resulted in a higher emphasis on our nation’s infrastructure. This is particularly true for the roads in the country as they remain the most common mode of transport for the people.

Traffic on Indian roads has been steadily increasing by 7-10% per annum. This has led to about 25%-30% of national and state highways being heavily congested with truck speeds of around 25-40 km/hr.

Therefore, with an objective of achieving the world class road infrastructure in the country, the Government has successfully ensured the participation of private sector in road development. It is expected that the share of private investments shall go up from 5% in 10th plan to 36% in 11th plan.

Our Current Projects

At present, RInfra has eleven projects with a total length of 968 kms, costing around Rs.11700 crores. Out of them, NK Toll and DS Toll Road projects; both on National highways (NH) 7 are completed and are commercially in operation from Sep 09.

NHAI is coming out with 10 Mega Highway Projects and major 6 laning projects for an increased utilisation of India’s road potential. Taking advantage of this opportunity, RInfra is targeting to build road business up to Rs 20000 crores by end of this financial year. This showcases the initiatives that RInfra is adopting proactively to build roads that are an amalgamation of corridors to propel India’s growth and development.
