Soma firmly believes that only an efficient infrastructure setup can ensure a nation’s sustained economic growth.
True to its commitment, Soma focused on building national highways, state expressways with uncompromised standards and world class safety measures that definitely has a cascading effect in saving precious lives, preventing injuries, reducing traffic-related health hazards and mitigating regular maintenance costs of the vehicles.
The Vision 2020 document of the Planning Commission projects a five-fold growth to the volume of India’s road traffic by year 2020. This will be enabled by over 70,000-km of national highways and 5,000-10,000-kms of four-laned (or more) expressways networking the Metros. State highways and rural roads are also set to see significant improvement. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is engaged in the largest highway project ever undertaken in the history of the country. The Phase I and II of the NHDP will see four-six laning of about 14,279 km of national highways. Having worked on over 20 highway projects in the last 12 years, it is a natural evolution for SOMA to take on projects on a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis in a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
