Also, the task would become easier for laying of pillars alongside the proposed road which can carry new technology oriented metro trains/other speed trains in the future on need based basis. This can happen only if the Government is in possession of the land (sufficient) alongside the proposed roads/highways.
On the other hand, if the Government just manages to purchase land equivalent to the actual requirement of proposed roads/highways, then for future expansion/addition of more infrastructure like metro rail connectivity and the like may not be easy because again the same exercise of buying land need to begin fresh involving more time and more money spent.
Also the asset value of the transport department would go up in the future if more lands are available with them at their disposal.
