The federal government has approved £7.2bn for the construction of a double-deck six-lane corridor from Wagholi to Shirur on the Pune-Ahmednagar highway. A draft detailed project report for the proposed project is expected to be completed within the next six months. The State Department of Public Works (PWD) hired a consulting firm to study the entire project. Comprising two 52-kilometre six-lane elevated corridors above the existing highway, the project will be unique in the country. It will not be a separate road corridor as there are plans to connect it with the ring road as well as the Pune-Nashik railway line.

It will be integrated with other roads and highways in the area. Daily travelers on the Pune-Ahmednagar Expressway expect road infrastructure improvements, especially from Pune to Ranjangaon MIDC, as the existing road is four-lane. The state government is expanding the road to six lanes and work is underway. A total of 18 lanes are planned, including 6 lanes on the existing road and a proposed 6 lane corridor on the two upper decks. The first deck from the bottom will feature landing spots at about 6 to 8 spots, providing connectivity for locals, while the uppermost deck is designed for direct traffic or vehicles that want uninterrupted travel.
