The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has achieved a significant milestone by completing the land survey for the upcoming Shaktipeeth Expressway connecting Nagpur and Goa. Kailash Jadhav, Joint Managing Director of MSRDC, announced that the land acquisition and compensatory processes would commence shortly. 

The Nagpur-Goa expressway is poised to offer direct connectivity between the two locations, substantially reducing travel time from 21 hours to 11 hours.

Covering a total distance of 800 km and passing through 12 districts between Nagpur and Goa, the expressway is not only an infrastructure development but also a route that encompasses Hindu pilgrimage sites. Among these are two jyotirlingas- Parli Vaijnath and Aundh Naganath (Nageshwar)-located in the Hingoli district. 

Additionally, the expressway will connect Mahur Renu Devi temple, Tuljabhavani in Tuljapur, Vitthal Rakhumai temple of Pandharpur, Mahalaxmi temple of Kolhapur, and Goa’s Patradevi temple, enhancing accessibility to these popular religious destinations.

Designed to promote tourism, the Nagpur-Goa expressway is a greenfield project with an estimated cost of Rs 86,000 crore. The completion of the land survey marks a crucial step forward in the development of this transformative infrastructure project.
