The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is going to make traveling to Gujarat a lot easier. According to reports, the Delhi-Vadodara section will be opened for high-speed travel from December this year. Currently, it takes 18 hours to reach the city. After the construction of the expressway, it can be reached here in just 10 hours. This is definitely good news for those going to Gujarat from Mumbai or Delhi. It is to be known that this section will also make travel to Goa by road easier as compared to the existing route.
The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is soon going to get direct connectivity from Delhi. A link expressway is being constructed that will connect Delhi, Ghaziabad, Noida and Faridabad via the DND flyover and the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway. After its completion, commuters from Dausa and Jaipur will not need to go through Gurgaon. If the Dahod section is left out, the Delhi-Vadodara section may be ready by December this year.
Traveling to Goa will also be easy
The Delhi-Vadodara section is scheduled to pass through Faridabad, Ballabhgarh, Sohna, Nuh, Palwal, Alwar, Bharatpur, Dausa, Sawai Madhopur, Tonk, Bundi, Kota, Mandsaur, Ratlam, Jhabua, Dahod, Limkheda, Panch Mahal and Vadodara. After the construction of this expressway, the journey to Goa will also become easier. Currently, it takes 34 hours to travel from Delhi to Goa. However, with the construction of this expressway, the travel time will be reduced to 19 hours. At the same time, it will take 12 hours to reach Mumbai. From there the greenfield Mumbai-Goa Expressway can be reached in 7 hours. This means that the total travel time will come down to 19 hours.
Dwarka Expressway will be completed in 3-4 months
On the other hand, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari told that the work of Dwarka Express will be completed in the next three to four months. This country’s first ‘elevated urban expressway’ will reduce the traffic pressure between Delhi-Gurugram. Gadkari said the work on the expressway would be completed in four ‘packages’. Toll collection on Dwarka Expressway will be fully automated and the entire project will be equipped with Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). The total length of Dwarka Express is 29 kms. Of this, 18.9 km is in Haryana while the remaining 10.1 km is in Delhi. The expressway will start from near Shiv Murti in Mahipalpur, Delhi near National Highway No. 8. Then Gurugram on National Highway No. 8 will end near the toll plaza built near Kherki-Daula village.
