Electric highway will be built between Delhi and Mumbai, Nitin Gadkari gave information

Highway is already present between the two largest cities of India and now it takes around 20 – 24 hours. Now there is talk of preparing an electric highway. Trolley bus is that electric bus which runs by taking power from the wires above. On the other hand, an electric highway is a place where the vehicles running on it get the facility of power lines.

Along with this, Gadkari said that his ministry has decided that all the districts of the country will be connected by four-lane roads. At the same time, Gadkari asked the drivers of heavy vehicles to use alternative fuels which include ethanol, methanol and green hydrogen so that the problem of pollution can be fought strictly.

Earlier, Nitin Gadkari had said in September 2021 that an electric highway would be constructed between Delhi and Jaipur. Nitin Gadkari was also in talks with a Swedish company for the construction of an electric highway between Delhi and Mumbai at the same time, his dream project.

What is Electric Highway?

The way the electric train gets electricity from the wires above, the same facility is available on the electric highway. In such a situation, a vehicle running on any necessary electric highway can be connected and driven on it. Currently such electric highways will be built between many cities in Europe.

The trend of electric vehicles is increasing all over the world, although not as fast, but sales of electric vehicles have increased in India as well. There has been a big revolution in the field of electric two wheelers in the country but this too accounts for 3 – 4% of the total sales. Electric vehicles are growing rapidly in the three wheeler segment and now almost half of the three wheelers are sold electric.

Nitin Gadkari is constantly talking about reducing the use of petrol, diesel and is promoting alternative fuels. Recently, he said that after five years, the need of petrol to run vehicles in the country will end. Gadkari said that the production of bio-fuel is being increased rapidly in India, in five years the country will become self-sufficient in the matter of petrol. In his speech, the Union Minister highlighted ethanol, green hydrogen and clean fuel.

Highways are still not spread everywhere in India and there is a need to improve the highway infrastructure, but at such a time there is talk of building electric highways. This does not seem right at the present time, before this the highway infrastructure should be improved.
