Centre to convert state highways into NHs: Gadkari


The MoRTH is planning to take over the state highways with high traffic density from the states for 25 years and convert them into four or six-lane highways, said Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. He added the Centre will collect toll on these converted highways and recover investment­s along with interests and land acquisitio­n costs over 12-13 years. “We are planning a green express highway between Mumbai and Bengaluru. It will take five hours to reach Bengaluru from Mumbai and 3.5 to 4 hrs between Pune and Bengaluru. The Mumbai-Pune highway will take a turn from near Pune’s Ring Road and start as the highway winds up towards Bengaluru. Likewise, we are also planning 27 green express highways, which will come up in the country soon.
