With this accomplishment, a new world record for building a road of this length quickly was established.

The road was constructed by the EPC contractor Larsen & Toubro Limited and the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of Cube Highways Trust, Ghaziabad Aligarh Motorway Pvt Ltd.

The 118-kilometer length of NH34 between Ghaziabad and Aligarh, according to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, is crucial for trade between commercial centres, agricultural regions, and educational institutions. It is essential for facilitating the free flow of products and services and promotes economic growth, he continued.

“This success demonstrates the commitment and inventiveness of India’s road infrastructure industry. Nitin Gadkari tweeted, “I would like to express my congrats to the great teams at Cube Highways, L&T, and Ghaziabad Aligarh Motorway Pvt Ltd (GAEPL) for their outstanding success.  

The deployment of cutting-edge technologies and a highly skilled crew allowed the motorway to be built in a record amount of time. The consortium employed a unique form of bituminous concrete that was created to be swiftly & easily placed. Additionally, the workers put in 24-hour shifts to guarantee that the project was finished on schedule.

Gadkari emphasised the government’s goal to promote exceptional mobility, commerce, and development by building world-class highways at the quickest possible speed without sacrificing quality during a speech that spanned several cities in Uttar Pradesh, including Dadri, Gautam Buddh Nagar, Sikandrabad, Bulandshahr, and Khurja.

The minister also discussed India’s dedication to sustainability and financial efficiency in the project’s use of Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR) technology. According to the minister, this cutting-edge green technique makes use of 90% of the material that has been milled, or close to 20 lakh square metres of road surface. He said that only 10% of virgin resources are now consumed.

“‘By using this strategy, we have significantly cut down on fuel use and the associated greenhouse gas emissions, significantly reducing our carbon footprint,'” Gadkari spoken.
