Often, travelling from Delhi to Meerut tends to be a chore. The roads are narrow, winding and rather unsafe. In case you are planning to visit Meerut six months later, you could take the new Delhi-Meerut Expressway and travel between the two places in under an hour. Read on to know all the details of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway, which will be ready in the next six months.

What's the update?

The main goal of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway is to make travelling between the two cities more convenient and less time taking. As of now, the existing route via NH-9 and NH-34 is rather time consuming and it can take you up to three hours to travel along this route.

The new expressway on the other hand will cut down travel time to less than an hour. Now that's something to marvel at. Within six months from now, you will be able to take this route. Apart from just connecting the two areas, the expressway also serves the purpose of developing areas alongside the new path.

What's the route?

The plan to construct the Delhi-Meerut Expressway is being carried out in four phases. The first phase of the plan covers Nizamuddin Bridge to the U.P Border and the second one, from the border to Dasna, is the most important phase. In this phase, the existing road will be converted into a 14 lane expressway, making for speedy travels.

The other two phases cover the approach to Meerut. For phase three, which has been opened, there is a 22 kilometer stretch from Dasna to Hapur. For residents of these areas, travelling should become a breeze. The fourth and final phase of the expressway covers the last stretch from Dasna to Meerut Bypass.

What other plans?

As per the NHAI authorities, the Delhi-Meerut expressway is a stepping stone into the future of better connected expressways. They have already begun working on the Kanpur-Lucknow stretch and are also planning a seamless route between Delhi and Lucknow.

Knock Knock

The fact that the NHAI is stepping up their game and are planning to make seamless connections from various places is a huge development. We are really excited to see how it blooms and how the connectivity between different places brings about a change in the transport scene.
