Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on 31 July 2015 announced construction of 800 kilometers of Nagpur-Mumbai expressway.

The Nagpur-Amravati-Aurangabad-Ghoti-Mumbai expressway, also called Communication Super-expressway, would be build at the cost of 30000 crore rupees.

The expressway would be a six-lane road and in the first phase a four lane road would be constructed. This road will be equipped with CCTV cameras, wi-fi facility and optical fibre network.

Besides, the state government also plans to develop IT parks, smart cities, and education hubs along the road.

The project would be completed in coming five years and the travel time between the state capital and second capital would be brought down from 14 hours to 10 hours.

The announcement is a major move in the surface transportation in Maharashtra. This super-expressway will become a road to development for the backwards regions of northern Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha in the state.
