This has replaced the Mumbai- Chennai NH 4 expressway and now connects the administrative capital of Maharshtra, Mumbai to the Financial Capital Pune. There are also 5 tunnels along this stretch. This ex[pressway has reduced travel time between the two cities by almost 2 hours and is one of the most popular expressways of the country.
