Under this program, 26,200 km length of economic corridors, 8,000 km of inter corridors, 7,500 km of feeder routes, 5,300 km border and international connectivity roads have been identified by the ministry as stretches for development. Apart from this, the government has also planned to develop coastal and port connectivity roads spanning 4,100 km and expressways of 1,900 km in length.

The National Corridor Efficiency improvement is poised on the development of ring roads around 28 cities. The plan also includes, decongestion of around 125 choke points and 66 congestion points alongside development of 35 multimodal logistics parks.
