More About This Project

Madhya Pradesh, located in central India, is the second largest state in the country by area. Madhya Pradesh is a landlocked state and hence surface transportation is the backbone for industrial, tourist and socio-economic development. More than 50% of the state highways are still single to intermediate-lane, and need to be upgraded to at least double-lane, to meet growing traffic demand.

To address this challenge, Government of Madhya Pradesh has designed the Project which will enhance transit through existing and planned industrial corridors and improve connectivity of agricultural areas with national highways.

The Project will support widening and/or upgrading of state highways road sections with a total length of about 885 km in Madhya Pradesh to at least double lane road. The Project will include innovative components to promote climate resilient infrastructure development.

The Project aims to benefit more than 12 million population, providing safe and enhanced road connectivity to more than 650 social, economic, and educational centers.
