India’s highway construction programme will require nearly US$257 billion in financing over the next five years. That is the key statement from a report published by KPMG, titled Roads and Highways Sector - Current Trends and Future Road Map. India has set targets for building some 60,000km of new highways over the next five years. KPMG’s estimate for financing is the figure it believes India will require to achieve its road building target. Various different financing methods will be required however, with PPPs being one of the favoured systems.
