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.

915.85 km of this highway will built on a greenfield alignment, while the rest will be built by upgrading existing national highways. Construction work on its greenfield section started in 2019 with a primary goal to improve the efficiency of freight movement and boost exports.

The project is being developed under the Bharatmala Pariyojana Phase-I program. Its feasibility report and detailed project report (DPR) were prepared by Chaitanya Projects Consultancy, Pentacle Consultants, K & J Consultants and STUP Consultants.

  • Total Estimated Cost: Rs. 80,000 crore
  • Project’s Total Length: 1256.951 km
  • Lanes: 4-6
  • Current Status: Under Construction, Bidding Underway & Land Acquisition Underway
  • Deadline: 2025
  • Owner: National Highways Authority of India (NHAI)
  • Project Model: Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM)

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.
