Good road connectivity allows people easy access to basic health and educational services, as well as infrastructure support for production, trade and commerce. SAIL has been actively involved in the construction and repair of pucca roads per year, thereby providing communication facilities to nearly 2 lakh people across 329 villages every year. This compares well with the national average of 25.82 kms per million population. One of the most brilliant examples of SAIL’s road building initiative can be seen in Salem, Tamil Nadu where a road was constructed connecting the plant to National Highway # 7
In the year 2009-10, 103.35 kms of pucca road were constructed benefiting 17,24,114 people. Till March 2010, more than 73 lakh people across 435 villages reaped the advantage of the modern network of roads built by SAIL.
