Loss of Rs. 200 crores per year on vehicles due to poor quality of roads

    Road transport of the country is facing a number of problems. According to one estimate there is about per year loss of Rs. 200 crores on the wear and tear of the vehicles due to poor quality of roads. Even the National Highways suffer from the deficiencies of inadequate capacity, weak pavement, poor riding quality, distressed bridges, unabridged level cross­ings, congested cities (lack of by-pass roads), lack of wayside amenities and safety measures.
Most of the Indian roads are unsurfaced (42.65%) and are not suitable for use of vehicular traffic. The poor maintenance of the roads aggra­vates the problem especially in the rainy season.
One major problem on the Indian roads is the mixing of traffic. Same road is used by high speed cars, trucks, two wheelers, tractors, animal driven carts, cyclists and even by animals. Even highways are not free from this malady. This in­creases traffic time, congestion and pollution and road accidents.
