Nine cross-country corridors get e-ways connectivity

    E-way Projects
    In a major boost to the economic activities in the country, the Central government has decided to connect nine of 44 economic corridors across the country with the five express highways. This will lead to seamless trade across these economic corridors, thereby saving cost, time and fuel as the project is being implemented by the MoRTH and NHAI. Economic corridors which will be connected by expressways include Delhi-Vadodara, Chennai-Salem, Ambala-Kotputli, Amritsar-Jamnagar, and Raipur-Vizag. The distance between Delhi-Vadodara and Amritsar-Jamnagar will be reduced by 10% once the expressways are commissioned. The distance between Ambala-Kotputli will also be reduced by 25%, Road Transport Secretary, YS Malik said. Besides building new alignments on the nine economic corridors, optimizing existing expansion of roads is also a priority as the new alignments on these corridors will considerably cut travel time between the two cities, thereby, leading to savings of time, fuel, and carbon emissions. Highlighting the green approach of the project, the secretary added that NHAI will acquire land on one side of highways instead of both while expanding the existing roads. Economic corridors are being planned as a part of Bharatmala Pariyojana with the aim of constructing 24,800 km of highways by the year 2021-22
