Soon, you can reach Bhopal from Indore in just two hours with six-lane expressway


Major road infrastructure boost for Madhya Pradesh! The much-awaited expressway between Bhopal and Indore in Madhya Pradesh will be a six-lane road. The big infrastructure project will be developed at a cost of Rs 3,000 crore, according to a Dainik Bhaskar report. With the completion of the six-lane expressway project, the distance between Bhopal and Indore would be reduced and also the time to travel between the two cities in Madhya Pradesh would be reduced to only two hours. The central government has given its nod to the six-lane expressway project. Interestingly, the Bhopal-Indore expressway project will be developed as an economic corridor, which will include the development of new townships as well as other facilities in order to ease business in that region, according to the report.

In order to develop the economic corridor, the Bhopal-Indore expressway project is likely to get connected to Bhopal bypass road through Mandideep. Moreover, the expressway project will be developed under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious Bharat Mala scheme. The entire fund for the development of the expressway project will be provided by the central government.

The state government of Madhya Pradesh headed by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, has already begun the work to acquire land as well as to identify the route for the Bhopal-Indore expressway project. Within a period of one month, the detailed report would be out and the passage from where the Bhopal-Indore expressway project will pass would be identified. The Sadak Vikas Nigam Madhya Pradesh will send a report to the central government. Once the report is approved, land acquisition will begin for the project.

The Bharat Mala scheme is an ambitious project of Modi government. The projects developed under this scheme are funded by the central government. The scheme, which is under the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, was launched in the year 2015.

^^I think they should carry out a brownfield expansion of the existing highway, upgrade it to an access controlled expressway of 6 lane if the traffic is not much. unnecessary land acquisition is not worth it

I can't read this news clip but some opposition parties and local newspapers are making the new alignment an elitist political issue as if only those who want to go from Indore to Bhopal or from Bhopal to Indore matter!

The towns, villages in between, and the whole region between the two largest cities of Madhya Pradesh, their economic prospects and potential matter too. The old alignment is good in some parts and in poor shape and overcrowded in some parts. It is about 80 to 30 kilometer away from the new alignment. Once completed, properly maintained and connected, the two will create a major large economic, education and services corridor in central India, just like the eastern and western peripheral highways are likely to create around Delhi in the next 5 to 15 years.

The proposed greenfield will join near NH 45, bringing Jabalpur and other major towns of Madhay Pradesh closer to Indore, its largest city and a hub of educational institutes, industry and other economic activity. The time savings for a journey between Indore to southern and eastern parts of Bhopal would be 30 to 60 minutes, plus fuel savings.

They should extend NH 46 into a complete ring road around Bhopal, covering the south and joining it to the west of the upper lake near the highway 18. That ring road could offer a junction to the proposed new alignment.

The challenge before India is the last 5 to 15 kilometers! In my experience after visiting the field in many states, thousands of kilometers of highways in India in many states are increasingly world class, or good enough, to average 70 to 100 kilometers per hour for several hours, it is the last 5 to 15 kilometers near or around or through a major city where the average speed reduces to between 5 to 15 kilometers per hour (3 to 10 mph). Bypass, ring roads, and highways through the city would make a major difference, improve productivity and quality of life for the locals, accelerate economic activity, save a lot of fuel and reduce pollution.

Existing hwy is v good. No need for greenfield. They should make existing hwy signal and cross free. Make bridges and underpasses. Where is mr bharatmala? There is v little traffic btwn idr and bhpl. No business/jobs in this area. Most traffic is from bom to idr to del.

They should actually make new narmada eway. Amarkantak to guj border. It will be vry hlpful to ppl from lots of diffrent areas. Justclike smruddhi marg is maha.
