The Delhi-Vadodara-Mumbai Express Highway presently under construction is 845 kilometers and it has the potential to become a highway of future development. Currently, the Vadodara district administration has almost completed the very important land acquisition for the Vadodara to Mumbai phase within the limits.
Under the guidance of District Collector Shalini Agarwal, the district administration has come close to completing this work following the Land Acquisition Act.
Giving details, Shalini Agarwal said that 99 per cent of the required land has been acquired and 96.56 per cent of the compensation due to the land donors has been paid.

The total land to be acquired is 599-31-41 hectares.
