National Highways in Uttarakhand

For every state, region or country, roads play a vital role in their economy and development. Uttarakhand being a hill state is relatively less developed than plain areas. The maintenance charge of Hilly roads is very high and they often get damaged in harsh weather or due to natural calamity like landslides.

After Independence, the process of making roads in Uttarakhand was very slow but, the 1962 war of Indo-China gave a much-needed boost to the construction of roads, all over the Uttarakhand because it share a wide range of border with china. Today, Uttarakhand proudly exhibits 14 National Highways, having a length of 2108 kilometres. Below is the list of all National highways with their route.
