“I congratulate the RAHSTA committee for this very good initiative. I believe it will provide an excellent platform for capital goods, consultant firms, equipment companies, and technology firms to converge. This meets a crucial need within the industry. The event also benefits older industries, as new technology and equipment continuously enter the market. These advancements are often cost-effective and, at times, eco-friendly. Thus, this platform is poised to play a significant role,” said Ashish Kumar Singh, CGM – Finance, National Highway Authority of India, signifying the importance of the expo.

AK Singh was speaking at the launch of a road show - 14th RAHSTA Expo, which will be held from October 9-10, 2024, at Jio Convention Centre, Mumbai. RAHSTA, which stands for Roads and Highways Sustainable Technologies & Advancement, is a dedicated event to the world of road construction equipment, technology, and sustainability. 
 
“The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has constructed 12,349 km of national highways in 2023-24 - the second highest achievement! In 2020-21 a record 13,327 kms had been constructed, the highest so far. The experience of a well-constructed road is no accident but a badly constructed one can cause many,” stated Pratap Padode, Founder, FIRST Construction Council, a pioneering infrastructure-driven council focused on advancing India's infrastructure development. 

Also speaking at the launch, former Managing Director of Ashok Leyland & JCB, Vipin Sondhi, also Chairman of RAHSTA Expo Committee underscored the need for specialised platforms like RAHSTA Expo for the burgeoning road construction industry.
