How direct flight operations between mumbai and pune stopped after the completion of india’s first expressway in 2002 nitin gadkari money moguls



The construction of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway started in 1997.
Credit for this is given to the Union Minister, Nitin Gadkari.
This highway was built with public funds.

New Delhi. India’s first controlled access highway was completed in 2002. Its name is Mumbai-Pune Expressway, also known as Yashwantrao Chavan Expressway. It is a 6 lane expressway connecting Mumbai to Pune. It starts at Kalamboli in Navi Mumbai and ends at Kiwale in Pune. This highway passes through the beautiful Sahyadri mountain range. There are many tunnels on this 95 kilometer long highway.

Regarding this expressway, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had said in one of his interviews that the flights between Mumbai and Pune had almost stopped after the transport operations on it started. However, until 2019, Jet Airways operated direct flights from Mumbai to Pune, but after its collapse, they no longer operate direct flights between these two cities. Nitin Gadkari gives credit for this only to the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.

Also read this: You cannot stop the vehicle anywhere on the edge of the road, if you do, you will be asked where to stop.

This highway is the gift of Gadkari
Nitin Gadkari was the PWD Minister of Maharashtra when the idea of ​​building this highway was born. For this, he did not make an offer to any private company, but he raised around 1600 crores from public funds and built it. He says that the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) was established for the construction of this highway.

house of accidents
It was the first access controlled expressway in India where new levels of security were established. However, despite this, due to human errors and engineering errors, many accidents began to occur on this route. Following this, MSRDC, SaveLIFE and Mahindra & Mahindra together started a campaign to make it a ‘Zero Fatality Corridor’ and by 2016, 1000 engineering errors were rectified via this route.

backwards in terms of speed
Although it has the distinction of being the first expressway in the country, it lags behind its peers in terms of speed. While the maximum speed allowed on other highways is 180 km per hour, the maximum speed on this one is only 100 km per hour. Now the work of widening this road is going to start. It is possible that after that the maximum approved speed limit of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway will also be increased.
