Potholes Bring Traffic To A Standstill On New Delhi Roads

In recent months the news has been full of reports on potholes and the damaging effect they have on road infrastructure, cars and local government budgets

An online newspaper recently reported that in one day alone, 7km of traffic was bought to a standstill, between Ashram and Jasola, because the road had been so badly damaged by potholes.

The potholes caused traffic to bottleneck which resulted in long delays for motorists – so much so that extra personnel had to be deployed to the area to help manage the traffic.

And it’s not just happening in New Delhi! Potholes are causing problems on many expressways across India – quite a disruption for a population of 1.2 billion.

Road repair is a topical issue in India with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) recently giving the go ahead for a US$70 billion road highway expansion programme. The National Highways Development Programme (NHDP) aims to develop 50,000km of national highways in several cities across India. As part of this expansion, the potholes on the existing highways need to be repaired – this is where Ultracrete can help!
