Ahead of the formation of the new government, the Ministry of Road Transport has prepared a master plan under Vision-2047 to develop new super expressways in India. These expressways will allow vehicles to travel at speeds of up to 120 km/h.

Additionally, the master plan includes the creation of access-controlled high-speed corridors spanning east to west and north to south, significantly reducing travel time by 45-50% and saving 35-40% on fuel consumption.

ย 

๐Ÿ“œ Key Highlights

  • Speed and Efficiency: New super expressways will support speeds of up to 120 km/h, while high-speed corridors will allow for speeds up to 100 km/h, maintaining an average speed of 90-100 km/h on expressways.

ย 

  • Infrastructure Design: The plan includes the construction of four-lane, six-lane, eight-lane, and ten-lane access-controlled high-speed corridors and super expressways.

ย 

๐Ÿšฆ Toll-Free and GPS-Based System

One of the standout features of these new super expressways and corridors is that they will be toll plaza-free, with tolls being collected through a GPS-based system. This will ensure smoother and uninterrupted travel for road users.

ย 

๐Ÿ“Š Master Plan Details

According to the documents available with ‘Hindustan’, the Vision-2047 master plan outlines the construction of over 49,000 kilometers of high-speed corridors, including super expressways, by 2037. The estimated cost for this massive infrastructure project is โ‚น19 lakh crore.

ย 

๐ŸŒ Strategic Benefits

The plan aims to enhance connectivity across the country, with a particular focus on the following regions:

  • Jammu & Kashmir
  • Himachal Pradesh
  • Uttarakhand
  • Remote areas of northeastern states

ย 

These regions will benefit significantly from the improved infrastructure, allowing for travel speeds of 70-80 km/h on the high-speed corridors.

๐Ÿ“ Specifications

  • Expressway Width: 90-100 meters
  • Corridor Width: 70 meters

ย 

The expansive width of these roads will enable long-distance travel at high speeds, benefiting road users and boosting regional connectivity.

๐Ÿšง Current and Future Projects

Currently, India has 4,000 kilometers of high-speed corridors, with an additional 6,000 kilometers under construction. The Vision-2047 master plan sets an ambitious target to exponentially increase this network, enhancing the overall road infrastructure in the country.
