Nitin Gadkari moots Rs 1 trillion underground ring road for Mumbai



The Centre is planning to construct a tunnel ring road in the city that can be linked to the proposed Ahmedabad-Mumbai highway.

The cost of the tunnel ring road project, as per initial estimates, is around Rs 90,000 crore.

“To improve connectivity and at the same time ensure that the scenic beauty of the city is not disturbed while creating bridges and roads, we are considering building a tunnel road that would go up to the proposed Ahmedabad-Mumbai highway,” Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said here over the weekend.

He said the highway project, which has been on the back burner as there is a new proposal for a Surat-Mumbai elevated road, will be revived. More info
