Progress (2016 March): Road Expansion Programme/Model


There are 164,000-km of road networks in the country of which 13,000 kms are paved. The government has promised to pave another 10,000 by 2017 with 80 per cent being rural and 20 per cent urban roads.

In future, all highways must have pedestrian walkways and/or non-motorist traffic pathways, to to avoid clogs and funneling.

The Government has shelved the Annuity program because it was very expensive and the key stakeholders were not comfortable with it.
