The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has initiated the third phase of Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway’s expansion which will link the districts of Bhandara, Gondia and Gadchiroli.

The third phase will consist of building three separate arms. The MSRDC has floated a tender for the construction of an access controlled expressway from Nagpur to Gondia that will span a length of 127 kms to be built at a cost Rs 7,345 crore. Another 28 km stretch connecting Bhandara to Gondia will be built at Rs 1,587 crore and a 194 km Nagpur to Chandrapur stretch will be constructed at Rs 9,543.2 crore.

As per the MSRDC, the objective behind augmenting Samruddhi Mahamarg was to reduce commuting time in the eastern most districts of Maharashtra, with the financial capital Mumbai opening up new opportunities.

The Samruddhi corridor is 700 km long, connecting Mumbai to Nagpur. Only a 600-km stretch of the corridor from Nagpur to Bharvir in Igatpuri is open for traffic.

Work was progressing on the remaining 101 km stretch, with its opening slated for July this year.

Festive offer

The MSRDC had earlier planned the second phase of the corridor’s expansion connecting the districts of Jalna, Parbhani and Nanded through a 180-km link to be built at a cost of Rs 19,000 crpre.
