About the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway
The 1,386 km long Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is set to be the longest expressway in India and will reduce the distance between the two cities by 12%, from 1,424 km to 1,242 km. It will connect major cities like Kota, Indore, Jaipur, Bhopal, Vadodara, and Surat, passing through six states: Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.
The expressway will serve 93 PM Gati Shakti Economic Nodes, 13 Ports, 8 Major Airports, and 8 multi-modal logistics parks (MMLPs). It will also connect two new upcoming greenfield airports, Jewar Airport, Navi Mumbai Airport, and the JNPT port.
Foundation Stone Laid for Road Projects Worth Over INR 5,000 crore
In addition to the inauguration, the Prime Minister also laid the foundation stone for 247 km of National Highway projects. The projects include a 67 km long four-lane spur road from Bandikui to Jaipur, a six-lane spur road from Kotputli to Baraodaneo, and a two-lane paved shoulder of Lalsot – Karoli section. These projects will be developed at a cost of more than INR 5,940 crore.
The construction of the Delhi-Mumbai expressway is expected to require 12 lakh tons of steel (equivalent to 50 Howrah Bridges), 80 lakh tons of cement (equal to 350 Statues of Unity), and 35 crore cubic meters of earthwork (equivalent to filling the Roman Colosseum 30 times over).
The opening of the Delhi-Dausa-Lalsot stretch of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and the laying of the foundation stone for the National Highway projects mark a significant step towards improving connectivity and driving economic growth in the region.
