Greenfield expressway between Mumbai and Goa is on the state government’s list. If the project gets a green signal, motorists can whiz in four to five hours through the expressway. The new expressway will cut short the time by 6-7 hours as currently it takes around 12-15 hours.
According to a English daily, the Maharashtra State Road Development Communication (MSRDC) has put forth the project to National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). The authority has by now started widening the NH-66 highway that connects Mumbai and Goa. The highway was previously a two-lane road and work has been started to make it a four-way lane.
Currently, the MSRDC is focusing on the Mumbai-Nagpur expressway project. The project is being closely supervised by the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
In a recent media interaction Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had announced the possibility of beautification of the Mumbai-Goa expressway on the lines of the road linking Los Angeles and San Francisco in the United States. Gadkari has also stated he has asked the MSRDC to submit a detailed report on the beautification of the said road.
