Mumbai-Goa Highway Gets Facility Centres For Travellers

Hence, in order to provide a break from the long journey to them as well as to other travellers, convenience facilities have been established. These convenience centres will offer amenities like clean and hygienic toilets, snacks, refreshments, first-aid and more.

Chavan also inaugurated these centres which were built by the Maharashtra Public Works Department. One of the centres which was inaugurated recently was built in Kharpada, a small town located along the highway.
