India’s first elevated eight-lane access control road is likely to be completed by April 2024: Mr. Nitin Gadkari

Mr. Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister of Roads and Highways, announced that the 29.6-kilometre long Dwarka Expressway, which would be India's first elevated eight-lane access control road, will be nearly completed by April 2024, and would cost approximately US$ 1.09 billion (Rs. 9,000 crore).

The 34-meter-wide expressway, which spans 18.9 kilometres in Haryana and 10.1 kilometres in Delhi, is being constructed on a single pillar.

In addition to it, he informed that the expressway constitutes a four-level road network, and incorporates flyovers, tunnels, underpasses, grade roads, and elevated roads. Furthermore, a three-lane service road is being constructed on both sides of the expressway.

The connectivity between Haryana and West Delhi to the Indira Gandhi International Airport will be enhanced due to this development. He added that the expressway will connect Gurgaon’s Sector-21 with Sector-88, 83, 84, 99, 113, and Dwarka to Global City.

An Intelligent Transport System (ITS) will be incorporated into the entire expressway, which would therefore enhance the overall transportation experience.
