Govt to build 6,000 km of electric vehicle-ready highways on Golden Quadrilateral
The government is working on a plan to build electric vehicle-ready highways on the Golden Quadrilateral in a major effort towards reducing fuel consumption and vehicular emissions through electrification of intercity public transport. People in the know told ET that the Centre is looking to develop 6,000 km of these highways.
This is planned over the next seven years to accelerate the adoption of e-mobility and support the deployment of e-buses across the country. These e-highways would be powered with green energy-enabled charging infrastructure.
