Economic Corridors in India – Quick Snapshot

India’s Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) and National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) have identified several highway corridors of economic importance and see them carrying 25% of freight by 2030.

Around 26,163 km of new and existing routes (to be upgraded to expressway standards) have been identified as 44 Economic Corridor projects. Under Bharatmala Pariyojana Program (BMP) Phase 1, approximately 9000 km of projects are in various stages of development with Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) being prepared for the rest.

Criteria Set by MoRTH

  • Stretches with higher freight flow
  • Stretches with overall higher traffic
  • Stretches with ease of Land Acquisition and pre-construction activities and DPR preparation
  • Capacity augmentation from 4 to 6 lane would be taken in 2nd phase

This page provides a quick snapshot with a list of all Economic Corridors in India – under construction (ongoing), approved (upcoming) and proposed (planned) projects. Design standards (width, material) vary highly from project to project with each containing some or all access-controlled stretches.

The following table is best viewed on a Desktop device. Some of them have been linked to their dedicated project page which displays current status, alignment, deadline, land acquisition details, package and contractor information.
