Roads and infrastructure construction is pivotal to India’s growth story. At the same time, India holds the dubious distinction of the highest road fatalities in the world. In 2019, 151,000 people in India lost their lives due to road accidents. India’s socio-economic cost of road traffic accidents for the year 2019 is estimated at $38.81 billion or 1.35% of the GDP.
India’s road network of national highways, state highways, and rural roads is witnessing a transformation in both scale and pace of growth. The government has a target to construct 100 kms of roads per day over the next two years. The budgetary disbursement has increased from ₹33,414 crores (FY 2015) to ₹1,83,101 crores (FY 2022).
The conference will be chaired by Akhilesh Srivastava (ex-CGM NHAI, World Economic Forum, and IT Advisor to the Uttarakhand Government). He headed the implementation of India’s most successful digital toll collection program FASTag.
Distinguished speakers at the Conference will include Prof. M. Parida, Director CRRI; S. K. Nirmal, Addl Director General MoRTH & Secretary General Indian Road Congress (IRC); Kiran Kapalia, President Emeritus, Indian Road Federation; P. R. Swarup, Director CIDC; and Dr. Hussain Bahia, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
