The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation's (MSRDC), 700 km two-lane highway project between Nagpur and Mumbai had only one bidder on 29 December 2008.

Of the 13 companies who have evinced their interest in the Rs.900 crore project, only one – IndiaBulls submitted its bid for the project which is to be developed on BBOT basis. The highway passes through Ghoti between Thane and Nasik and then approaches Sinnar, Sindhkhedraja, Karanja, and Wardha to reach Butibori near Nagpur and saves 90 minutes of travel time compared to the old Mumbai-Nagpur highway.

The winning bidder is supposed to buy the half-built road, build the other half of it, and operate the entire highway for over 30 years to recover the total cost of Rs.900 crore. Apart from this, the bidder will also be paying against the expenses already incurred on over 570 km of its stretch built by the MSRDC through private loans. Besides toll, the agency to be selected will get 15 different plots along the highway for commercial exploitation.

Of the total 700 km road, work on 570 km patch, mainly including 431 km stretch from Nagpur to Sindkhedraja, has been completed. The remaining 269 km patch between Jalna and Ghoti (that falls between Nashik and Thane on Nashik-Mumbai (Agra) highway) is yet to be finished except a small stretch between Puntambe near Vaijapur and Sinnar. The ROB and bypasses near Ghoti and Sinnar are also to be constructed.
