Akhilesh Srivastava – Driving changes into the Highway Sector in India
Posted: Apr 11, 2018
The integration of technology in the various sectors has paved its way to drive away the inefficiencies that people face in their day to day lives. In a country like India where the concept of Digital India has just cemented its roots, the effects of the same are gradually seeping through the daily activities of the citizens. The construction industry in the country is no exception to this concept. Officials are introducing new methods and strategies to streamline the work process and make it even more transparent.
Mr Akhilesh Srivastava, CGM (IT and Highway Operations) of NHAI was recently awarded the Achievement Award in the Public Officer category, at the 10th Annual Vishwakarma Awards hosted by the Construction Industry Development Council (CIDC) on March 07th, 2018 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The award ceremony was held in two sections, the morning and the evening sessions in which all the elected officials were awarded for their contributions and achievements in the construction industry.
Mr Akhilesh Srivastava, who is the head of Highway Operations in India, has been working to tailor the very best and latest technology to the ongoing highway projects to ensure real-time monitoring for a streamlined outcome. He is a man of belief and conviction and is ensuring to enable transparency in the entire workflow of highway operations. He is working on several of the tech-enabled projects that are expected to make the overall highway infrastructure a lot better.
The Electronic Toll Collection project under Mr Srivastava’s supervision gained an overwhelming response from the highway users. They have claimed that this not just makes the tax payments a lot easier but helps avoid the issues concerning the traffic congestion at these toll booths. Mr Akhilesh Srivastava has emphasised on the fact that he is working on enabling this system to be available at all the toll plazas around the country. The work is currently in progress and will soon be implemented with finesse.
Modernising the National Highways across India is what Mr Akhilesh Srivastava envisions for the near future. He has been working strategically to introduce new technology for the smooth operations on the highways. Some of the projects that he has undertaken has already been successfully implemented and is operational around the national highways across India, the Highway Nest and the Highway Nest (Mini) to name a few.
Not just this recognition, Mr Srivastava is also going to be attending the 4th Annual Road and Highways summit, conducted by the International Road Federation of Geneva. The event is going to be held from April 09th-April 11th 2018 at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel in Singapore.
