Modi is scheduled to arrive in Mahbubnagar around 2:15 p.m. During his visit, he will lay the foundation stone for significant road projects connected to the Nagpur-Vijayawada Economic Corridor. These projects comprise a 108-km four-lane access-controlled greenfield highway from Warangal to Khammam on NH-163G and a similar 90-km stretch from Khammam to Vijayawada, with a combined cost of approximately Rs 6,400 crore. These initiatives are expected to reduce travel distances between Warangal and Khammam by about 14 km and between Khammam and Vijayawada by 27 km.
The Prime Minister will also inaugurate the 59-km four-laning of the Suryapet-Khammam section of NH-365BB, with a cost of Rs 2,460 crore, which is part of the Hyderabad-Visakhapatnam Corridor under the Bharatmala Pariyojana.
