Abstract:Road Transport is a critical infrastructure for economic development of a country. It influences the pace, structure and pattern of development. The capacity of National Highways in term of handling traffic (passenger and goods) needs to be in keeping pace with the industrial growth. India is having one of the largest road networks of over 46.99 lakh km. It comprises National Highways, Expressways, State Highways, Major District Roads, Other District Roads and Village Roads. A growing demand for passenger and public transport have led to a significant increase in air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A study conducted by the Central Pollution Control Board (New Delhi, India) in six cities – Delhi, Kanpur, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, and Mumbai, concluded that the transport sector contributes to more than 30 percent of the ambient air quality in these cities – either directly from the vehicle exhaust or indirectly via the re-suspension of dust on roads due to vehicular movement. The health impacts of air pollution from the transportation sector are significant – and the nature of the issue is that those areas with the most population density are most affected. The government has taken many initiatives for green highways. By using a live case study project we have implemented a credit system for Green Highway system..

Keywords: Highway, Sustainability, Green Road Rating System and Environment.
