The Indore Development Authority (IDA), Madhya Pradesh Industrial Development Corporation (MPIDC) and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) have launched a project to build a 56-kilometer ring road in Indore, with a width of 100 meters. The initial discussions focused on the alignment for the proposed western ring road, which would stretch from Khandwa village on the AB Road in Pithampur to Arjun Badoda village on the outskirts of Manglia in Indore.
IDA Chairman Jaypal Singh has stated that coordination is underway with farmers to secure their permission for the acquisition of land for the project. IDA is expected to construct approximately 43.5 kilometers of road, while the remaining stretch will be developed by MPIDC. The proposed road will pass through 46 villages, including three in Dhar and 43 in Indore district.
The project will benefit commuters and provide opportunities for MPIDC and IDA to develop residential and commercial projects along the route. IDA plans to include 79 villages in the district's proposed master plan and secure a 200-meter area on either side of the road to develop infrastructure, industries, and other facilities. The IDA and MPIDC are poised to take on the land acquisition and construction work.
