The journey between Ahmedabad and Vadodara is all set to become more comfortable as the project of six laning of the highway joining the two cities is expected to be over in the next two years. The work on the Rs 3,300 crore project has already

started and the financial closure is expected to be over soon. Sources said that the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is expediting the project as once completed, this will result in the entire Ahmedabad-Mumbai stretch being six-lane. “In fact, the four-lane expressway and the six-lane highway will be a bonanza for the travelers between the two cities. The people will have ten lanes connection at their disposal,” said an official. The project is to be executed under design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis in BOT (Toll) mode of delivery. “The road is expected to give an annual income of Rs 300 crores just from the toll,” said a source.

Another ambitious NHAI project nearing completion is the road connecting Ahmedabad with Indore in Madhya Pradesh. The work on Gujarat end is almost over and that on the other side is also being executed swiftly. “Once over, the journey from Ahmedabad to Indore will not take more than seven hours,” the source said. The source further said that the four laning of the road between Jetpur in Rajkot and Somnath in Junagadh is also nearing completion. This would mean that the entire stretch between Ahmedabad and Somnath would be four-lane. “There is a small issue pertaining to land acquisition on Junagadh by-pass which will be resolved soon,” the source added.
