Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Shri Nitin Gadkari in a series of tweets said that we are planning to implement the Bahu Balli Cattle Fence along the highways in India to stop the cattle crossing the road and causing dangerous accidents which cause the loss of human lives.
Shri Gadkari said the fence will be 1.20 meters high and installed on section 23 of NH-30 as a complete solution. He said that this installation will serve as a demonstration before the esteemed visit of Shri Narendra Modi Ji, the Honorable Chief Minister of India, to Chhattisgarh.
The minister said the stockyard, built using bamboo, offers a fully effective and environmentally friendly solution. He said the bamboo is treated with creosote oil and lined with HDPE, making it a stronger alternative to steel. The fence has a Class 1 fire rating, ensuring safety, and aligns with the principles of AatmanirbharBharat which aims to make all highways sustainable and minimize damage to wildlife and livestock, he added.
