Traffic congestion and productivity losses
There is an apparent mismatch between the growing number of private car owners and the increase in road infrastructure in the country. Moreover, growth in road density is negligible in the states where growth in vehicles is the highest. This is a considerable cause of concern both for the people and the government.
Goa, Haryana, Jharkhand, Gujarat and Delhi have the most congested roads, with the highest number of motor vehicles per km of road length. In Delhi, the number of motor vehicles in the last 8 years has increased by 56.5 % while the road density has remained almost stagnant. The scenario is no different for Goa, Haryana, Punjab and Gujarat. This shows the poor expenditure on road infrastructure in each state.
