Construction of express ways on major routes and development of waterways are among the steps government is taking to achieve its target of raising transport sector's contribution to the GDP to 2 per cent, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Tuesday.

“The ministry's target is that two per cent of the country's GDP will be contributed by the transport sector with the potential to create 15 lakh jobs,” Gadkari, Union Minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, said at an interaction at the MCCI here. He said road construction target by March-end would be 30 kilometres per day from 18 kilometres per day now.
