NHAI unveils Rs. 25,000cr highways’ grid

National Highway Grid
In order to facilitate highway drivers to take a straight road to reach from one place to the other across the country, NHAI has prepared a grid of 27 horizontal and vertical national highway corridors at a distance of every 250-km entailing a staggering investment worth Rs. 25,000cr. All these stretches will be four lanes and will provide more road space for seamless transport. The total length of these corridors, including ones such as Kanyakumari to Srinagar, Porbandar to Kolkata, Surat to Paradip Port, Rameswaram to Dehradun and Mangalore Port to Chennai Port, is about 36,600km. Out of this, about 30,100-km are already NHs but only 18,800-km are of four-lanes. The rest are either single or two lanes with missing NH link of about 6,500km, which are either state highways or major district roads. These stretches need to be converted into NHs and widened to four lanes for smooth travel because as of now the country has over one lakh km of NHs, but there is no scientific road network pattern to guide drivers to take shortest route to reach their destinations. The preparation of the grids will also help the government to re-designate the NHs for easy identification. For example, all even number NH grids can be identified for roads connecting east to west and odd number for corridors joining north end to south, said official sources.
