The Sardar Patel Ring Road is 76 km long ring road encircling the city of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.[1] It is a toll road built by the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA).[2] Built at a cost of 3.55 billion, it was opened in 2004.[3]

Route[edit]

It meets the Ahmedabad-Vadodara Expressway at one point[4] and crosses the Sabarmati River and the Mumbai-Delhi National Highway twice.[5]

The AUDA demarcated a region of 1 km around the road as a residential affordable housing zone in an attempt to improve affordable housing.[6]

Toll[edit]

The road is tolled with several toll plazas at Narol, Ramol, Ranasan and other locations.[2][7][8]

Public Transport[edit]

The Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation runs a circular bus service along the ring road from Sarkhej on an hourly basis in both directions.[9][10]

The Shivranjani-Bopal line of the Ahmedabad Janmarg crosses the ring road at Ghuma.[11][12]
