Bridging gaps, new expressway to bring Mumbai & Delhi closer!
Dubbed to be the most ambitious e-way project of the nation, the Delhi-Mumbai is being constructed at the cost of ₹98,000 crores (approximately).
Starting from Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust in Mumbai, the corridor will link through a 1,380 route to end at DND Flyway in Delhi.
The expressway will pass through the 5 states in India, connecting Haryana (80 km), Rajasthan (380 km), Madhya Pradesh (370 km), Gujarat (300 km) and Maharashtra (120 km) with National Capital Delhi.
As stated by the Road Transport and Highway Ministry, the expressway will also meet urban regions of NCR via the stretch of Delhi-Faridabad-Sohna.
The 8-lane corridor has been designed to expand up to 4 additional lanes (12 in total) to meet the increasing traffic demand in future.
New industrial townships and Smart Cities have been planned along its route. 92-way side amenities are also slated on either side of the road, at an interval of roughly 50 km.
Once operational, vehicles along this corridor will be allowed to race at a speed of 120 km/hour, cutting down the journey time between Mumbai and Delhi from 24 to 12.5 hours.
