The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways set five world records this year, including constructing a 75-kilometer highway stretch in 105 hours and 33 minutes, and the credit went to a dedicated team of engineers, contractors, consultants, and workers, according to Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Mr. Nitin Gadkari

He stated that the 75-kilometer continuous single bituminous concrete road was built on National Highway 53 between Amravati and Akola. He emphasised the importance of increasing ethanol production from sugarcane in order to meet the country's fuel demands and turn it into an energy exporter. He stated that if we all work together, India will be the dominant force in the twenty-first century. The country would become a 'vishwaguru' and economic superpower. The minister added at the 'Pandurang Abaji Raut Amrut Mahotsavi Satkar' event here that the credit for all of this goes to the engineers, contractors, consultants, and labourers who worked day and night.
