India achieves 100-km bituminous concrete road building target in 100 hours
The Ghaziabad-Aligarh section of NH34, spanning a total of 118 kilometers, plays a pivotal role in connecting densely populated regions. It serves as a vital trade route by linking industrial areas, agricultural regions, and educational institutions, facilitating the smooth movement of goods and contributing to the overall regional economic development.
The project's focus on sustainability and cost-effectiveness is evident through the implementation of Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR) technology. This innovative green technology allowed for the efficient utilization of 90% of the milled material, equivalent to nearly 20 lakh square meters of road surface. By adopting this approach, the consumption of virgin materials has been significantly reduced to a mere 10%. This reduction has not only minimized fuel consumption but also substantially decreased associated greenhouse gas emissions, making a noteworthy contribution to lowering the overall carbon footprint.
The successful completion of this ambitious project demonstrates India's commitment to infrastructure development and its ability to implement innovative and environmentally friendly technologies in the construction sector. The 100-kilometer stretch of bituminous concrete road will serve as a model for future road construction projects, showcasing the country's capability to achieve remarkable feats in the realm of transportation infrastructure.
