Afcons’ 7.78 km and 7.74 km twin tunnels between Kasara Ghat and Igatpuri will be the longest highway tunnel in Maharashtra which begins in Shivmadka village in Hingna tehsil located at a distance of 23 km away from Nagpur, is expected to be completed by the end of September, 2021. The expressway designed for a top speed of 150 km per hour is being built at a total cost of around `55,000 crore.

“This breakthrough makes the north portal connectivity to south portal direct and seamless through the right hand side tunnel. We plan to achieve the final breakthrough by September-end and complete both the tubes,” said Afcons Project Manager, Sekhar Das.

The expressway will pass through 10 districts – Thane, Nashik, Ahmednagar, Jalna, Aurangabad, Buldhana, Washim, Amravati, Wardha and Nagpur, besides giving connectivity at strategic points to another 24 districts of the state’s total 36 districts.
