Samruddhi Mahamarg

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has officially launched the third phase of the Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway expansion, solidifying its commitment to enhancing connectivity and fostering development in the easternmost districts of Maharashtra. The project, spanning Bhandara, Gondia, and Gadchiroli, is a crucial step towards reducing commuting time and unlocking new opportunities in the region.

This phase of the expansion involves the construction of a 127 km access-controlled expressway connecting Nagpur to Gondia, a 28 km stretch linking Bhandara to Gondia, and a substantial 194 km stretch connecting Nagpur to Chandrapur. The comprehensive project comes with an estimated cost of Rs 18,475.2 crore, showcasing the magnitude of investment and planning involved in this infrastructure endeavor.

The Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway, also known as the Samruddhi corridor, is a monumental 700 km expressway linking the financial hub Mumbai to Nagpur, enhancing connectivity across the state. Inaugurated in two phases between December 2022 and May 2023, the expressway has already demonstrated its transformative impact on travel and trade.

The first phase, a 520 km stretch between Nagpur and Shirdi, was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in December 2022. The subsequent phase, spanning Shirdi to Bharvir, was inaugurated in May 2023 by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Now, with the launch of the third phase, the MSRDC aims to complete the remaining 101 km stretch, with plans to open it to traffic by July of the current year.

The Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway expansion stands as a testament to the government’s commitment to infrastructure development, promising economic growth and improved accessibility for the residents of Maharashtra.
