This project is also a part of the 700 km Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway project. The longest tunnel is coming up on “Hindu Hridayasamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddi Mahamarg” at Igatpuri in Nashik. The tunnel will connect Tarangpada village in Nashik to Vishala village in Nashik of Maharashtra. The length of the tunnel is 7.78 kilometers. It will be another point of attraction in Maharashtra besides the tourist hotspot of Igatpuri in Nashik district. The tunnel will reduce the vehicular congestion significantly and also cut the time travel between Mumbai and Nagpur from 14 to 15 hours to 8 to 9 hours.
