The Union Minister shared many important information regarding the construction of Delhi-Mumbai Expressway through a press conference. Along with this, he told that the ministry is planning to build an electric highway from Delhi to Jaipur. It is still a proposed project and the ministry is in talks with a foreign company for the same.
As the name suggests, this electric highway, planned between Delhi and Jaipur, will power buses and trucks like electric railway locomotives. If you still do not understand, then tell that the way there are electric wires on the railway track and the antenna on the engine of the train connects to these wires and provides power to the engine. Similarly, this highway will also work.
In a statement to news agency PTI in 2016, Gadkari had said that India may soon have an ‘electric highway’, as in Sweden. At that time, Gadkari said that he had held talks with Sweden’s Minister of Enterprise and Innovation, Mikael Damberg, for the e-highway.
