NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated the much-awaited Dwarka Expressway, which is anticipated to ease traffic movement to the millennium city Gurugram. Today, the PM inaugurated the 19-km long Haryana section of the expressway.

This announcement comes a few days before the announcement of the model code of conduct by the Election Commission of India for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

The 19 km long Haryana section of the 8 lane Dwarka Expressway has been built at a cost of around Rs 4,100 crore and includes two packages of 10.2 km long Delhi-Haryana Border to Basai Rail-over-Bridge (ROB) and 8.7 km long Basai ROB to Kherki Daula. It will also provide direct connectivity to the IGI Airport in Delhi and Gurugram Bypass.

Besides this announcement, the PM also laid the foundation stone of 112 National Highway projects spread across the country worth about Rs One lakh crore.

These projects include the 9.6 km long six lane Urban Extension Road-II (UER-II)- Package 3 from Nangloi – Najafgarh Road to Sector 24 Dwarka section in Delhi; three packages of Lucknow Ring Road developed at cost of about Rs. 4,600 crores in Uttar Pradesh.

These projects will significantly contribute towards the growth of the National Highway network as well as help in boosting socio-economic growth, enhance job opportunities and promote trade & commerce in regions across the country, an official statement said.

Real estate consulting agency, CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd, in a statement, said that the transformative growth of Dwarka Expressway is poised to be hailed as a sub-city within the Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex. As a crucial component of the Development Plan 2031, this expressway not only serves as a northern ring road but also addresses the escalating traffic demands between Delhi and Gurugram.
