Travel time for commuters undertaking their journey from Nagpur to Pune will be reduced to eight hours, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said.
Bearing in mind the inconvenience commuters currently experience while traveling from Nagpur to Pune, the Nagpur-Mumbai Samridhi Mahamarg will be connected to the newly proposed Pune-Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar (Aurangabad) Access Control Green Expressway near Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar.
In a series of tweets, Mr Gadkari, the minister of road, transport and highways, said that this road will be built for construction with a completely new alignment by NHAI.
