The new Dwarka Expressway length is expected to benefit commuters from South Delhi and Gurugram by significantly reducing traffic in the Delhi NCR. The new section will connect Dwarka and Gurgaon.
The Gurgaon section of the Dwarka Expressway will be inaugurated soon, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi expected to unveil it in July. By reducing traffic and footfall on NH48, this expressway will significantly reduce pollution in the area. The Dwarka Expressway is a 29-kilometer motorway including a 19-kilometer portion in Gurgaon. Once this section of the Dwarka-Gurugram Expressway is completed, more over 60% of traffic on NH 48 will be diverted, resulting in more convenient commutes for Haryana & South Delhi residents.
According to officials, the new Dwarka Expressway will also reduce traffic on Sohna Road and Golf Course Road in Gurgaon. The full expressway is planned to be completed by the end of the year.
The Dwarka Expressway will be part of the ‘Golden Quadrilateral,’ a network of expressways being built across India to connect key cities such as Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, and Mumbai.
One section of the Dwarka Expressway will connect to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, the country’s largest road construction project to date. The Dwarka Expressway’s goal is to minimize pollution and travel time throughout the Delhi NCR.
Meanwhile, PM Modi has inaugurated the Delhi-Sohna-Dausa leg of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway earlier this year, connecting Delhi to Jaipur and other cities in Rajasthan.
