Some of the salient features of the expressway are tunnel lighting and improved street lighting, along with digital signage throughout. Toll at the expressway will be charged automatically on the basis of distance travelled between the entry and exit points. It will also be a Zero Fatality expressway where CCTV surveillance and free telephone booths will be provided at every 5 kms to report any accident or emergency.

The Mumbai-Nagpur Samruddhi Expressway will also be friendly for electric vehicles. One may keep aside the worry of short ranges offered on EVs as the expressway is expected to offer an EV charging station after every 50 kms.

The expressway will also allow facility to land an airplane, in case of any emergency or war-like situation. This facility is also available on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway where fighter jets can be landed.

The expressway, which will pass through several wildlife sanctuaries, will offer around nine green bridges or overpasses and 17 underpasses for wild animal movements.
