Nitin Gadkari to review progress of Delhi-Mumbai Expressway today

Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari will today review the progress of Delhi-Mumbai Expressway covering the States of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. The expressway being developed at a cost of 98 thousand crore rupees will be the longest expressway in India. It will enhance connectivity between National Capital, Delhi and Financial Capital, Mumbai. The new expressway is expected to halve the commute time between Delhi and Mumbai from nearly 24 hours to 12 hours and shorten the distance by 130 kilometres. This will generate annual fuel savings of more than 320 million liters and reduce CO2 emissions by 850 million Kilogram which is equivalent to the planting of 40 million trees.

Delhi Mumbai Expressway, envisaged under the vision of Prime Minister’s ‘New India’, was kick started in 2018 with the foundation stone being laid on March 2019. Out of the one thousand 380 kilometers, contracts for more than one thousand 200 kilometers have already been awarded.
