By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “India Road & Highways Sector Opportunity Analysis” report to their offering.

India’s road network at a primary level includes national highways while the secondary system is made up of state highways and major district roads. Extending the road system further are the rural and other roads apart from expressways. Of these the National Highways (NH) are handled by the central government while the state highways (SH) are in the hands of the state government. Other types of roads include the major district roads (MDR) and other district roads & rural roads that are handled by the state and local government respectively. In terms of ownership and construction the roads in India can be classified as Maintained by PWD, panchayat raj roads, JRY and PMGSY Roads, urban roads and project roads.

The 12th five year plan serves as the reference point for the growth in the market and projections about it with respect to road infrastructure. The 12th plan has the objective of improving mobility and accessibility while reducing the cost of transportation. The main target of the 12th five year plan is the completion of the ongoing phases of NHDP-I, II, III and V involving upgradation to 4 or more lanes of about 32,750 km. This includes overlapping length of about 5,850 km under GQ and NHDP-V, in a time bound manner within the plan period. About 10,000 km of roads are to be added to the national highways during the twelfth plan so that the total length of the highways becomes 91,200 km.

The government has plans to attract funding from the private sector for infrastructure projects to reduce strains on the budget. In this respect the PPP model has emerged as a preferred one for private sector participation in road projects and there have been about 100 completed PPP projects and 165 PPP projects that are in progress. For national highways that are not viable on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has decided to adopt the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) mode. About 20,000 km of 2-lane National Highways projects are to be constructed through EPC mode in the Twelfth Five Year Plan.
