Amritsar – Jamnagar Economic Corridor – Information & Status
1256 km Amritsar – Jamnagar Economic Corridor (NH-754 & EC-3), also known as Amritsar – Jamnagar Expressway, is an under construction 4-6 lane partially access-controlled highway by NHAI with a route alignment through Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat.

When ready, the distance from Amritsar to Jamnagar will reduce from 1,430 km to 1,256 kilometres and cut down the travel time from 26 hours to about 13 hours.
The Amritsar – Jamnagar Economic Corridor project starts from village Tibba (Kapurthala District) on the Delhi – Amritsar Expressway and ends in Jamnagar. Along the way it connects Bhatinda, Chautala, Rasisar, Deogarh, Sanchore, Santalpur and Malia.
