MSRDC officials noted that two and three-wheelers will not be permitted on the expressway. Thus, the general movement of heavy vehicles as well as four-wheelers will be much smoother and faster. Furthermore, once the 44-kilometer section becomes operational, it will potentially boost economic growth. In fact, it’ll also boost the movement of raw materials and finished products between the Nashik and Vidarbha regions.

In turn, the project will further contribute towards the reduction of transportation costs too. Additionally, it is said that it will benefit more than 1,000 industrial units. More especially based in the two MIDCs of the Sinnar Industrial area.  

The project for the construction of the Samruddhi Mahamarg in Maharashtra, India, was inaugurated back in December 2022.
