PM Modi Inaugurates Delhi-Mumbai Expressway from Sohna to Dausa

Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially inaugurated the Delhi-Dausa-Lalsot portion of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway and set the cornerstone for more than Rs 18,100 crore worth of road developments in Dausa, Rajasthan on Sunday.

The Delhi-Dausa-Lalsot segment of the Delhi Mumbai Expressway which is 246 km long, reportedly cost more than Rs 12,150 crore to build, according to officials.

The opening of this segment will significantly accelerate the economic growth of the entire region and cut the travel time from Delhi to Jaipur from five hours to roughly three and a half.

With a 1,386 km length, the Delhi–Mumbai Expressway will be the nation’s longest motorway. It will cut the distance between Delhi and Mumbai in half from 24 hours to 12 hours and will cut the travel duration in half from 1,424 kilometres to 1,242 km.

It will connect important cities like Kota, Indore, Jaipur, Bhopal, Vadodara, and Surat while passing through the six states of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.

Along with spurs to future greenfield airports like Jewar Airport, Navi Mumbai Airport and JNPT port, the Expressway would also service 93 PM Gati Shakti Economic Nodes, 13 ports, 8 major airports and 8 multi-modal logistics parks (MMLPs).

The Expressway will have a catalytic effect on the growth trajectory of all surrounding areas, significantly aiding the nation’s economic transition.

“Prime Minister’s emphasis on the building of excellent road infrastructure as an engine of growth, development and connectivity in New India, is being realised by the construction of a number of ongoing world-class Expressways across the country,” the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said earlier in a statement.

“Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is one such project and its first completed section, Delhi-Dausa-Lalsot, will be dedicated to the nation by the Prime Minister,” the PMO said.
