  • Two New Expressways For Punjab

    Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on his recent visit to Punjab announced two new expressways.

    1. Delhi - Amritsar-Katra (Passing through Jind-Barnala-Moga)
    2. Jalandhar--Ajmer-Mumbai (Passing through Moga-Bathinda-Kishengarh)

    It would be interesting to see what effect these would have on Punjab's real estate and the economy in general. The Jalandhar-Ajmer-Mumbai expressway in particular is meant to give a boost to Punjab's exports sector by providing easy and quick access to a sea port which was missing till now.

    It is interesting to note that both the proposed expressways pass through Moga. Complete list of other towns and cities that fall on the route is not available yet.

    Finally there is also a big question of whether these projects would be executed if a non-Akali/BJP comes to power in Punjab. A similar Pathankot-Ajmer Expressway was promised by the Akalis back in 2008 but never implemented.

    Re : Two New Expressways For Punjab

    Two new expressways that were promised to Punjab :

    1. New Delhi-Moga-Amrtisar-Katra Expressway

    2. Jalandhar-Moga-Ajmer Expressway

    are now moving forward.

    In the case of New Delhi-Amrtisar-Katra Expressway, government has appointed consultants to prepare Detailed Project Report

    In case of Jalandhar-Ajmer Expressway, NHAI issued RFP last year

    Both projects entail large amount of land acquisition as well as development od additional facilties along the highways such as restaurants, hotels, petrol pumps etc.

    This could give a major boost to land prices in Punjab in the coming years.
