All About Delhi Mumbai Expressway

The Delhi Mumbai Expressway, a 1,380-km managed access to the toll road, was planned by the Indian government as a strategy to connect financial centers in the United States and cut travel time between the two major cities from 24 hours to 12 hours. The mission’s foundation stone was laid in March 2019, and the motorway is slated to open on January 26, 2023.

The eight-lane Delhi–Mumbai motorway will cover the distance between Delhi and Mumbai by going through five states and various greenfield locations, which might be developed into warehousing centers.

The government also wants to build a separate e-toll lane along the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway to allow commercial vehicles like vans and buses to travel at a speed of 120 kmph to address concerns about vehicular pollution. Additionally, it is anticipated that the e-toll road will reduce logistical costs inside the US by 70%.

On September 16–17, 2021, Nitin Gadkari, minister of roads and shipping for the Union, will assess the progress of the Delhi–Mumbai Expressway project.

The Delhi-Mumbai motorway is almost finished and is the longest section, President Ram Nath Kovind said during the price consultation of Parliament that began with the president’s address. Additionally, he said that the United States currently has a network of over 1.40 lakh kilometers of national highways, up from 90,000 kilometers in March 2014.

The Delhi–Mumbai motorway would bypass five states—Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Maharashtra—and is being developed for Rs 98,000 crores. The motorway will leave from Gurgaon and bypass Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Ratlam, and Vadodara in Gujarat before arriving in Rajasthan.

The greenfield motorway will help reduce the distance between Delhi and Mumbai from 727 to 572 kilometers.

India’s first animal bridges or animal overpasses may be found on the planned motorway, which has the potential to be the country’s longest greenfield freeway. These can be created to prevent the new infrastructure from having an impact on the natural world sector. Around five of these animal overpasses, totaling around 2.5 kilometers in length, may be found in Rajasthan, running between the Ranthambore Natural History Museum and the Mukundra Natural History Sanctuary.

The greenfield Delhi–Mumbai motorway is also expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 850 million kg. Additionally, due to lessened visitor congestion, 32 crore liters of gas can be stored annually. The freeway’s lighting fixtures will run on solar energy. Millions of trees may line the motorway, watered by drip irrigation over the entire length and by rainwater gathering devices every 500 meters. An e-toll road is being planned for expansion, which is expected to save logistical costs. This eight-lane freeway’s four lanes could only be used by electric cars. For security, a 1.5-meter-high wall can be erected on each side of the street. Instead of being installed on highways, toll plazas might be placed in slip lanes.
