BRO to build first steel slag road on border

August 18, 2022
The Border Road Organisation (BRO) will take up the construction of a pilot road stretch in Arunachal Pradesh using steel slag.

The project has been initiated after the success of using 100 percent steel slag on a port connectivity road in Gujarat.

The 1.2 km Hazira port connectivity stretch was a research and development (R&D) project carried out by CSIR-CRRI in collaboration with a major steel manufacturer and Steel Ministry.

The National Highways Authority India (NHAI) will also use the steel slag for construction of a portion on Mumbai-Goa highway.

The Indian Railways has also sanctioned a major R&D project to CSIR-CRRI to explore possible utilisation of steel slag aggregate as railway ballast for track construction and maintenance.
