MSRDC Launches Third Phase Expansion of Samruddhi Mahamarg, Introducing Three Expressway Connectors

As the Samruddhi Mahamarg nears completion, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has embarked on the third phase expansion, focusing on enhancing connectivity through the construction of three access-controlled super communication expressways.

Strengthening Connectivity to Remote Districts

Access to Bhandara, Gondia, and Chandrapur

In this expansion phase, MSRDC aims to build expressways connecting the districts of Bhandara, Gondia, and Chandrapur. These expressways, woven into the extensive road network, will seamlessly integrate with the Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Mahamarg, facilitating smoother road travel between Mumbai and these remote parts of the state.

Projected Costs and Distances

  • Nagpur-Gondia Expressway: Covering 127 km, including a bypass to Gondia, this expressway is estimated to cost Rs 7,436 crore.
  • Bhandara to Gondia Expressway: Spanning 25 km, the connector is budgeted at Rs 1,587 crore.
  • Nagpur to Chandrapur Expressway: Extending over 194 km, this expressway is planned with an investment of Rs 9,543 crore.

MSRDC’s Call for Proposals

MSRDC has initiated the next steps by inviting Request for Proposals (RFP) from pre-qualified bidders for the construction of these expressways, signaling the beginning of a significant phase in Maharashtra’s road infrastructure development.
