Union minister Nitin Gadkari today laid the foundation stones for two highway projects worth 1,600 crore rupees in Mumbai metropolitan region of Maharashtra.

The projects include eight-laning the Vadape-Thane bypass and four-laning of the road connecting Shahapur, Murbad,  Karjat and Khopoli. 

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Gadkari said the work on the Baroda-Mumbai highway is expected to begin next month.

He said, for the proposed 12-lane Delhi-Mumbai expressway, government has adopted a new method to acquire land from the tribals, which will help in developing the region and also save money on land acquisition. 

Mr Gadkari also underlined the need for promoting waterways as it a speedy and cheaper means of transport and said several waterway projects in and around Thane will be a reality soon. He also said the waterways should be linked on the lines of Venice. 

Addressing the event, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis said his government is making every effort to provide an integrated transport system.
