For all those who did, kudos, while for those who didn’t, we are talking about Aamchi Mumbai i.e., Maharashtra. And this time too, the news comes from here.

Recently, Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister For Road Transport and Highways, inaugurated eight National Highway Projects in Igatpuri, Nashik, Maharashtra. The event witnessed the gathering of top-notch officials, including Union Minister of State Dr. Bharti Pawar, Member of Parliament Dr. Subhash Bhamre, Hemant Godse, and other noteworthy MLAs.

The entire project is expected to be massive, with an investment of around Rs. 1800 Crore. It is aimed to make the rural districts more accessible, and help the people in agriculture and in the handicraft business be more reachable. 

Reiterating his mission to improve the road infrastructure in India and make it equal to the USA standards, by 2024, he said “We are making the World Standard Road infrastructure in the country and promising you that before the end of 2024, our road infrastructure will be equal to the American standards. Our logistics cost is a big problem. Presently, it comes to 16 percent, but I am promising you that by the end of 2024, we will take it to the single digit, up to nine percent.”
