This 4 lane access-controlled highway project by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) will have its northern terminal at Seldoh village on the 701 km Mumbai – Nagpur Expressway (Samruddhi Mahamarg or ME-2). On the south-south it will includes a 11.969 km spur to Chandrapur city, and eventually terminate at village Ghatkul.

Nagpur – Chandrapur Expressway with a 100 meter right-of-way (ROW) has been designed with a 120 kmph speed limit. It will be constructed via 6 packages: NC-01, NC-02, NC-03, NC-04, NC-05 and NC-06.
