Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, announced the completion date of the Dwarka expressway on Thursday. The expressway, which is India’s first elevated, 8-lane urban expressway, is estimated to cost around Rs 9.000 crore and is part of the Delhi Decongestion Plan. The expressway is scheduled to be completed in April 2024. According to Gadkari, the expressway will be constructed in four packages. He was on a tour of the expressway with Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor (LG), V K Singh (Union Minister of State), Union Minister of State (Rao Inderjit Singh), Member of Parliament (MEP), Pravesh Verma (Member of Parliament), and Member of Parliament (Member of Parliament) Ramesh (Bidhuri) on Thursday. Earlier, Gadkari had said that the expressway would be completed in 3-4 months, with an estimated cost of around Rs 10.000 crore.

Dwarka expressway will have a fully automated tolling system and will be equipped with ITS, according to the road transport minister.

It has a total length of 29 km, 18.9 km of which is in Haryana and 10.1 km in Delhi. The expressway will connect the Dwarka side of the airport to the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

In addition, the Dwarka expressway will also provide direct connectivity to the India International Convention Centre (IICC) in Dwarka Sector 25. Gadkari also spoke about the proposed removal of toll plazas in Dwarka. Gadkari said that the proposed GPS-based toll collection system will put an end to traffic congestion and ensure that commuters pay only for the distance covered.
