The length of roads envisaged under the Nagpur plan was achieved by the end of it, but the road system was deficient in many respects.

Accordingly a 20-year plan was drafted by the Roads wing of Government of India, which is popularly known as the Bombay plan. The highlights of the plan were:

 

 

        It was the second 20 year road plan (1961-1981)

        The total road length targeted to construct was about 10 lakhs.

 

        Rural roads were given specific attention. Scientific methods of construction was proposed for the rural roads. The necessary technical advice to the Panchayaths should be given by State PWD's.

 

        They suggested that the length of the road should be increased so as to give a road density of 32kms/100 sq.km

 

The construction of 1600 km of expressways was also then included in the plan.
