Gaurav Path, Piplod

Gaurav Path is an expressway in Piplod, Surat, India. It was designed and constructed by the Surat Municipal Corporation as a part of a plan to connect Surat City with its airport, Magdalla Sea Port and Dumas Village. The expressway replaced the prior Surat-Dumas Road and is one of the best examples of Town and City Planning in India.[citation needed]

This expressway has three travel lanes in each direction and two service lanes in each direction. There are only two exits, the SVNIT Circle at Icchanath and Kargil Chowk at Piplod. It was designed to meet international standards and will be integrated with the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS). Surat is expected to get BRTS by 2010.There is a study being carried out on IPTS (Integrated Public Transport System) by CES which is supported by the GIDB (Gujarat Industrial development Board).

There are several illuminated bus stops either side of the expressway, which can be accessed through paved, broad footpaths. These footpaths divide the expressway with its service roads on either side.

The road also features robotic street sweeping systems, operated by the Surat Municipal Corporation.
