ROAD TRANSPORT SCENARIO Economic Growth : 5 - 6% Road Transport Sector Demand Grows at 10 – 12% Need for Road & Transport Infrastructure of International Standards Major Road Development Programmes - National Highway Development Project (NHDP) - Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) - State Road Development Programmes Proposed plan expenditure in 10 th plan (for roads)– Total approx. Rs. 250,000 crores
Proportion of Freight and Passenger Transport by Road and Rail YearFreight (Tonne-km) Road:Rail Passenger (Pass.-km) Road:Rail 195111:8926:74 196129:7142:58 197134:6659:41 198138:6263:37 199153:4779:21 200165:3587:13 200570:3085:15
Indian Road Network- Current Status National Highway (NH) *58,112 State Highways (SH)1,37,119 Major District Roads (MDR)4,70,000 Village and Other Roads (ODR & VR)26,50,000 Total Road Length 33,15,231 (in kms) NHs are less than 2% of network but carry 40% of total traffic
Energy Scenario Energy consideration is vital issue for development activities 250 million tonne oil equivalent (energy consumption) 20-23 % energy is consumed in transport sector alone India has only 0.4 % of oil reserve and 5.7% of coal reserve Consumption of petroleum products increasing at 8 to 9 % rate annually Road sector alone consume 71 % of total HSD ( 32 million tonne in a year) Can easily target 10 % saving trough improvement of roads and capacity augmentation
Major Ongoing Projects Golden Quadrilateral North-South Corridor East – West Corridor PMGSY Connectivity to major ports Additional 10,000 Km of NH Improvement Riding Quality Improvement Programme for National Highways Various State Highway Improvement Projects with World Bank Aid
National Highway Development Projects Country ’ s most ambitious Highways Development Project Highways with International Standard and facilities for uninterrupted traffic flow Divided carriageways & Service roads Grade separators, over bridges & underpasses Bypasses Wayside amenities Enhanced safety features
NHDP – VARIOUS PHASES PHASE I & II - LAUNCHED IN 1999. - 14,000 KM (GQ & NSEW) - UNDER PROGRESS PHASE III A - LAUNCHED IN 2005. - 4,000 KM BOT PHASE III B - 10,000 KM - GOVT FUNDING - TO BE LAUNCHED
National Highways Development Projects Total Length of NHDP ( PHASE I & II )14,162 Golden Quadrilateral High Density Traffic Corridors linking Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai & Kolkata 5846 Completion by Mid 2006 North-South & East-West Corridors N-S:Kashmir to Kanyakumari : 4,000 (including Kochi-Salem) E-W: Silchar to Saurashtra : 3,300 7,300 Completion by 2008 + Road connectivity to Major Ports 363 km and Other Roads 653 km
CURRENT STATUS - NHDP APPROX. 6,000 KM OF ROAD PROJECTS ARE UNDER IMPLEMENTATION. APPROX. 7,000 KM OF ROAD PROJECTS UNDER NHDP ARE STILL TO BE EXECUTED IN THE COMING 2 TO 3 YEARS.
RURAL ROADS UNDER PMGSY Aims to connect all the habitations with 500 population by the year 2007 Separate dedicated fund has been created by allocating 50% cess on diesel
Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana A Centrally sponsored programme Rs. 60,000 crores required upto 2010 Rs. 2500 crores available per year from 50% of diesel cess More will be available now with extra 50p chess
Construction Materials: Requirement for Rural Roads Only Assuming equivalent of 3.00 lakh km single lane road construction Estimated quantity of materials required: Good earth - 195 million cubic-m Gravel - 36 million cubic-m Stone metal - 24 million cubic-m Bitumen - 3 million tonnes
STATE HIGHWAYS ALMOST ALL THE STATE GOVERNMENTS HAVE TAKEN UP THE WORKS OF WIDENING, STRENGTHENING & UPGRADATION OF STATE HIGHWAYS THIS PROGRAMME IS EXPECTED TO GO ON TILL 2010.
