NEW DELHI: Ministry of Road Transport and Highways on Tuesday said it has made significant progress under PM Gati Shakti National Master Plan aimed at improving multi-modal connectivity and last-mile connectivity across the country.

Some of the major Expressways and Corridors under construction include Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, Ahmedabad-Dholera Expressway, Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway, Bengaluru-Chennai Expressway, Ambala-Kotputli Expressway, among others, the ministry said in a statement.

Some of the major key infrastructure projects under construction are Zojila Tunnel (Ladakh), roads to connect Krishnapatnam Port (Andhra Pradesh), a major bridge over Middle Strait Creek (Andaman & Nicobar Islands), two-laning of Lalpul-Manmao changing road (Arunachal Pradesh), among others.
