Earlier, Nitin Gadkari emphasised on safety-first approach for road design and construction, construction of environment-friendly roads, industry-friendly approach, new technology for safe, faster and economic roads and faster construction. Nitin Gadkari said that India has about six million km of road network which is the second largest road network in the world.

"The road infrastructure plays an important role in the Indian economy as 70 per cent of the goods and nearly 90 per cent of the passenger traffic uses the road network to commute. Upkeep and expansion of this network are critical not only from the supply chain perspective but also for the largest share of goods and passenger traffic that uses it," he said.

Meanwhile, Haryana's Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala , who also holds the portfolio of the Public Works Department, said the highway will reduce the travel time from Ambala to Jaipur considerably.

"This will lead to a major diversion of the traffic of NCR, due to which the problem of pollution will also be solved. Also, it will provide the shortest, fastest, and safest route from Ambala to Kotputli on Jaipur highway and will accelerate the pace of all-around industrial development and economic development of the entire Haryana state," he said.

Chautala said the national highway is a six-lane Access Controls Greenfield Corridor constructed under the Bharatmala Project, which is about 227 kilometres long, from Ismailabad (Gangheri) of Kurukshetra district to Narnaul (Haryana).

About 2,000 hectares of land has been acquired for this highway project, on which compensation of about 3,000 crore has been paid to the farmers and about 6,000 crore has been spent on its civil construction work, he said.
