“We have invited IIT engineers to develop technologies that will reduce the cost of constructing world class roads and highways across the country,” Gadkari told the stakeholders at the 10th edition of CII-Excon 2019, organised by the India Inc’s apex body, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) on the city’s outskirts. NHAI will step up building roads and highways up to 40 km daily by March from 30 km daily presently.
The five-day biennial event with the theme “Smart I-tech Next Gen India @75” is a convergent platform for showcasing advancements, innovations and latest developments in the constructions sector the world over. “Around 1,250 firms, including 390 from overseas, are participating in the expo,” the event’s committee member Sandeep Singh said on the occasion. The event will explore ways and means to attract women in the male-driven sector through a special initiative launched recently, Women Building India.
