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. In research paper discusses how to make green highway having reduced carbon emission, low air pollution, low noise pollution and also reduce UV radiation. Use industrial waste for the manufactured concrete green highway. Use street solar light and solar drip irrigation system on both sides of plants and in the plantation, those trees are reduced air pollution, noise pollution, reduce heavy metal in air and provide shade during the summer season
