The Project Features

Corridor Description

Vadodara-Mumbai Expressway is proposed eight lane expressway in India.

The proposed Main Expressway passes through the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Union territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli. The total length of the proposed expressway is about 379 km and runs generally parallel to the existing NH-8.

The Package I of the Expressway starts from Km 355+000 and ends at Km 378.740 (Km 80 of NE-1) near Vadodara. It passes through Vadodara district in the state of Gujarat

The alignment of this package passes mainly through plain cultivated and barren areas. These districts are rich in industrial production. There are many industrial estates and factories in these states both in public and private sectors. Textiles, chemical, petroleum and petro-chemical, paper & pulp, diamond, are located in state of Gujarat.

The Mumbai–Ahmedabad Corridor in the western part of the country is one of the important and densest transport corridors of the country which connects financial capital Mumbai to Ahmedabad business city of Gujarat.
