The 3 new access-controlled highway projects by Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) include the construction of 179.85 km Jalna – Nanded Expressway, 136.80 km Pune Ring Road, and 126 km Virar – Alibaug Multi-Modal Corridor connecting Navghar – Balavali around Mumbai city.

MSRDC had invited RfQ applications for their civil construction in April 2023 and opened bids in June 2023 to reveal 28 firms had applied to qualify to the next RFP round. Evaluation was completed on December 28, 2023.
