The prime objective behind this Expressway is to provide a seamless and efficient transport system encompassing all mobility and logistics requirements to ensure smooth and uninterrupted flow of the traffic.

Currently with the existing routes, the distance between JNPT Port Mumbai to Vadodara is around 550 Kms which takes around 10-11 hours as travel time. With the construction of Mumbai Vadodara expressway the distance will be shortened to just 379 Kms ( around 170 kms lesser than current distance). Along with this, the high standard of pavement with accessibility to high speed will allow the commuters to cover the journey from Mumbai to Vadodara in just 3.5 to 5 hours which will save huge amount of fuel and transportation &  logistics cost.

Also after successful construction of this expressway, there will be a boost in the socio and economic growth of the nearby areas and will also push the growth of industries like Textiles, Gems, Jewelleries , Petrochemical ,Fertilizer etc.
