The Delhi-Mumbai expressway project has now gained momentum as the acquisition of land in Haryana, altogether 80 km, has been completed. This means that the final construction work of the expressway is likely to start soon! According to a TOI report, the bidding process is currently on and the acquisition of land is ongoing in other states namely Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.
The eight-lane road crossing through Sohna in Gurugram will link the Western Peripheral Expressway with the DND flyway in Delhi. In a bid to decongest the national capital, the Ministry of Highways announced a plan in 2015, to develop half a dozen link roads in order to create a direct connectivity to the Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressway from Delhi.
The land acquisition for the 1,250km expressway which is to be built at an estimated Rs 60,000 crore, is under process in Rajasthan (380km), Gujarat (120km), Madhya Pradesh (300km) and Maharashtra (370km). Read More
