The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has big plans of constructing expressways, national highways, state highways and rural roads in the coming years. However, any uncertain economic situation in future may affect the recovery of the market as this will affect the payment of contractors, financing and thus equipment mobilisation.
The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is one of the most prestigious expressway projects in India in current time. The highway will start near Gurugram at Sohna and will end at JNPT, near Mumbai. With a total length of 1,353 km, the expressway is divided into 49 packages (31 packages in Delhi-Vadodara section, 13 packages in Vadodara-Mumbai section and five packages in Mumbai-JNPT section).
Asphalt paver market is likely to flourish in the coming years as more rural roads and highways are in the offing. The Budget 2018-19 has major focus on extension of 3.17 lakh km of rural roads which are largely asphalt roads.

Monitoring and control technologies in infrastructure, construction and mining equipment has become one of the priorities in the industry these days as the government is pressing for quality and speed in project execution.
L&T Construction is executing several important infrastructure projects across the country and overseas. In the roads, runways and elevated corridors sector, we are presently executing more than 30 projects.
The latest electric throttle actuators provide a cost effective way to control engine speed on mechanical diesel engines. Compact and easily installed, they enable greater freedom of machine design and the use of more ergonomically optimised controls.
Asphalt paver was developed by Barbar Green Co that originally manufactured material handling systems. In 1929, the Chicago Testing Laboratory approached them to use their material loaders to construct asphalt roads.
It is a matter of pride that India has achieved an impressive speed of more than 50 km a day in highways and over a 100 km a in rural roads. The thrust continues to build more speed.
Developmental work in the North-East and far-flung rural areas will drive a robust growth of road building equipment, with a twist - the market for smaller-sized equipment to suit applications and delivery logistics requirements will be the gainer.
The complexity of infrastructure projects is increasing day by day. At the same time, the speed at which you build any infrastructure project is becoming critical. Various technological and methodological improvements have enabled us to optimise the speed and efficiency of the construction process.
