"My ministry and my team are working hard, and even during the COVID-19 pandemic, our (highway) construction rate was 38 km per day, and my ambition is to increase it to 60 km per day, which is a target," Gadkari said at an event.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (NHIDCL) are primarily in charge of building national highways and expressways throughout the country. The minister also stated that logistics costs are an issue in India.
