Ghazipur Mandi Waste to be used for Highway construction

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari is planning to use the sold waste from Ghazipur mandi in Delhi for construction of highways as well as have plans of landscaping two peripheral expressways worth 8037 crores. National Highway Authority of India will use the waste from Ghazipur mandi to construct highways. This mandi supplies fruits and vegetables to Delhi and adjoining areas and is a large contributor to pollution because of the landfill gasses generated from the garbage dumps.
NHAI is already using fly ash upto 30% of earth filling in the Eastern Peripheral expressway and using other slag materials elsewhere.
This step has been taken after Council of Scientific and Industrial research and Central Road research institute have tested the use of this waste and have approved to use this waste for the construction of highways.
