Posted: Apr 11, 2018
The significance of the roadways in facilitating trade as well as establishing connections between groups is well known to the world. Countries have been modernising their roadways to pace up with the changes. Yet there are many challenges, which deserve urgent attention, in the process of development of road infrastructure. So, to discuss the current issues and the opportunities pertaining to the roadways, the 4th Annual Roads and Highways meet is going to be held from April 09th-11th 2018. Mr Akhilesh Srivastava, who is CGM of IT and Highway operations, is going to represent India in this meet.
The 4th Annual Roads and Highways, which is jointly organised by Marcus Evans and International Road Federation (IRF), Geneva, is going to host a wide range of discussions and presentations that would help the participants to get to know the worldly developments and challenges. Mr Akhilesh Srivastava is going to deliver his presentation on 09th April, 2018 on the implications of China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) project on Asia’s road connectivity and also he is going to share his experiences on the modernisation of national highways in India.
At a time when the world is stressing on large-scale road infrastructure, this event has assumed more significance. Many bureaucrats and representatives from different countries are expected to attend this event. They would be sharing their thoughts and ideas through discussions and presentations. As Mr Akhilesh Srivastava has been involved in many highway developmental projects, his words would value more in this event.
Under the leadership of Mr Akhilesh Srivastava, who is known for his tech-savvy nature, the IT and Highway operations division in NHAI has executed many note-worthy projects like Wayside Amenities project, FASTag project, RAMS and so forth.
Wayside Amenities Project, the much-touted project is first of its kind in the Highways sector in India. It is going to be one of the largest Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects pertaining to the national highways’ infrastructure. Through this project, the NHAI is planning to reshape the land abutting national highways. Commuters and Traders, while travelling on national highways, would be greeted with refreshment facilities and markets in the coming days. This project is going to serve twin objectives of modernisation of national highways as well as economic development of locale.
The FASTag project is also one of the largest projects that have been executing by the Highway operations division, which is headed by Mr Akhilesh Srivastava. The NHAI has made this project a priority. If this project would be implemented at Pan India level, this Toll collection system would help commuters enjoy seamless travel across India. Both commuters and truckers would be benefitting with this project as it enables them to cut travel cost and time.
The experience acquired by these projects is going to help Mr Akhilesh Srivastava in demonstrating his ideas and thoughts. This event is going to pull out some solutions related to roadways infrastructure, which could be implemented across the world and say goodbye to the problems.
