New Gurugram-Mumbai e-way to be ready in three years: Nitin Gadkari

GURUGRAM/NEW DELHI: The govt will build a brand new parkway connecting Gurugram with Mumbai passing in the course of the country’s two maximum backward districts —Mewat in Haryana and Dahod in Gujarat —within the next 3 years, highways minister Nitin Gadkari stated on Monday. The venture would cost about Rs 60,000 crore, resources stated.

The parkway will scale back the existing distance of one,450 km through street to about 1,250 km and can carry down the commute time to about 12 hours. Currently, it takes at least 24 hours to hide the stretch between Delhi and Mumbai through NH-Eight. Gadkari stated the work on this stretch will get started through December and will be finished within the next 3 years, whilst speaking at a TOI match on “Give Gurugram its Due”. The parkway will begin from Rajiv Chowk in Gurugram. “It will be constructed at the current alignment up to the Sohna bypass and from there it will be greenfield (new) alignment until Vadodara,” stated a highway ministry legitimate.

Gadkari stated the work for the Vadodara-Surat stretch of the parkway has been awarded and the tenders for the Surat-Mumbai stretch will be out soon. “This entire parkway will carry construction to the undeveloped areas and hinterland in Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh to spur expansion and some backward areas may also shine like Gurugram. Industrial and business construction will generate jobs. We are now taking a look at construction highways on new alignment slightly than simply increasing the existing stretches to decentralise construction,” he stated.

TOI on March 4 had first reported how the highways ministry will focal point more on construction greenfield roads slightly than keep on increasing the existing ones.

Gadkari stated the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will supply connectivity to the proposed Chambal Expressway and a dozen more towns, including Jaipur, Kota, Sawai Madhopur, Ujjain, Godhra and Ahmedabad. There may be a proposal to have the availability for a high-speed rail corridor along the Gurugram-Vadodara stretch.

The minister stated work will get started at 40 places concurrently in order that the new parkway turns into operational. Since the parkway will cross through unexplored areas and backward areas, the expenses for land acquisition will be much less. The land acquisition expenses for the Gurugram-Vadodara stretch could be within the range of Rs 5,000 crore to Rs 6,000 crore, which is nearly one-third of what National Highway Authority of India would have spent for purchasing land for construction the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway.

Sources stated the highways ministry just lately remodeled its plan to extend the earlier proposed Delhi-Jaipur Expressway up to Vadodara. “Since we have now already began work at the Vadodara-Mumbai stretch, construction the Gurugram-Vadodara corridor will make the commute easy from Delhi up to Mumbai. Delhi-Mumbai highway carries about 15% of the country’s general cargo visitors and this is more likely to grow. So, the desire for a greenfield parkway was once felt,” stated a ministry legitimate.
