Roads/ Highways

Wagad Infraprojects have constructed many state highways and road construction projects using modern road construction machineries.

India has the second largest road network in the world, spanning a total of 5.89 million kilometers. This road network transports 64.5% of all goods in the country and 90% of India’s total passenger traffic uses road network to commute. Road transportation has gradually increased over the years with improvement in connectivity between cities, towns and villages in the country.

Highway engineering is an engineering discipline branching from civil engineering that involves the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of roads, bridges, and tunnels to ensure safe and effective transportation of people and goods.

Highway construction is generally preceded by detailed surveys and subgrade preparation.[3] The methods and technology for constructing highways has evolved over time and become increasingly sophisticated. This advancement in technology has raised the level of skill sets required to manage highway construction projects. This skill varies from project to project, depending on factors such as the project’s complexity and nature, the contrasts between new construction and reconstruction, and differences between urban region and rural region projects.
