Nitin Gadkari said he will soon inaugurate a system for real-time reporting of delays on toll plazas, adding that the system will help understand problem areas. He noted that the ministry is planning to use GPS to make the flow of traffic seamless. Development of GPS bases toll collection can remove all toll plazas in country, he said.

“We will be offering all these services to the state governments as well,” the minister said, requesting the Maharashtra government to consider this for the Mumbai–Nagpur Expressway Samruddhi Expressway.

“100 per cent FASTag is mandated at toll plazas, average daily toll collection increased by 50%, facilitating seamless traffic movement,” Gadkari said.

Gadkari also talked about the adoption of new technologies and alternative materials in the construction of roads and highways to bring down cost.

The ministry, he said, is planning to use steel and plastic fibers, and is already experimenting with bamboo for crash barriers, for which projects have been given to IITs and other engineering colleges in the country. The government is also promoting the use of flash, waste plastic and rubber in construction, he noted.

Bitumen companies are not cooperating with the ministry when it comes to the use of modified bitumen, Gadkari said, adding that the ministry is looking at the option of making the use of modified bitumen mandatory.

“The problem is that when we discuss with the oil companies, it is costly compared to other bitumen. There is saving for them, but they are giving us higher rates. Bitumen companies are also exploiting the situation, and we will think of allowing imports to create competition in market.” he said.

“We are flexible with contractors adopting any successful technology or practice from around the world, meeting requirements of defect liability period,” he added.
