According to the latest reports, the Balasaheb Thackeray Samruddhi Mahamarg expressway is being constructed between Nagpur and Mumbai. This is slated to be the first highway in India with nine green bridges or overpasses. Apart from this, 17 underpasses for wild animal movements have been made.

Based on accounts, the Maharashtra government has initiated a project that entails a 701 km long Nagpur-Mumbai Greenfield Expressway. This has been reportedly named, “Hindu Hurudaysamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg”.

It has been reported that the purpose of the expressway is to ensure connectivity between prominent cities of the state which will help ameliorate employment, education, health, amongst other sectors. Since the expressway will offer direct connectivity between Mumbai and Nagpur, the export-import condition of the state is anticipated to enhance.

For those unversed, the expressway will go through districts that include the likes of Nagpur, Wardha, Amravati, Washim, Ahmednagar, Nashik, Buldhana, Aurangabad, Jalna and Thane. Apart from this, feeder roads and inter-connecting highways will help connect 14 other districts.

Equipped with eight lanes, four on each side, the Expressway is believed to have a speed limit of 150 km. The Mumbai Nagpur Expressway will also have CCTV cameras and free telephone booths every 5 km in case of emergencies.
