The Amritsar-Jamnagar Greenfield corridor, one of the most important Greenfield corridors being developed by NHAI, is being constructed in a full capacity. The complete corridor is targeted to be completed by September 2023.
The Greenfield section of the corridor of length 917 km including 155 km from Amritsar to Bhatinda and 762 km from Sangariya to Santalpur is in advanced stages of implementation with over 400km constructed currently. Especially, Bikaner to Jodhpur section of 277 km is targeted to be completed and opened to public by the end of this year.
The flagship 1,224 km long Amritsar - Bhatinda - Jamnagar Corridor is being developed at a total capital cost of INR 26,000 Cr. and will connect the economic towns of Amritsar, Bhatinda, Sangaria, Bikaner, Sanchore, Samakhiyali and Jamnagar across the four states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
The corridor will connect the northern industrial and agricultural centres of the country with the key ports of western India like Jamnagar and Kandla. This will help boost the industrial revolution connecting industrial belt of Baddi, Bhatinda and Ludhiana through spurs and the state of Jammu and Kashmir through Delhi – Amritsar – Katra Expressway. The trans-Rajasthan corridor will significantly reduce the transit time and logistics cost to fuel, will help to stand tall in the competitive global export marketplace.
