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

GURUGRAM/NEW DELHI: The government will construct a brand new parkway connecting Gurugram with Mumbai passing during the nation’s two maximum backward districts —Mewat in Haryana and Dahod in Gujarat —within the next three years, highways minister Nitin Gadkari stated on Monday. The mission would cost about Rs 60,000 crore, sources stated.

The parkway will cut back the present distance of one,450 km via highway to about 1,250 km and will bring down the shuttle time to about 12 hours. Currently, it takes at least 24 hours to hide the stretch between Delhi and Mumbai via NH-Eight. Gadkari stated the paintings in this stretch will get started via December and might be finished within the next three years, while speaking at a TOI match on “Give Gurugram its Due”. The parkway will begin from Rajiv Chowk in Gurugram. “It might be built on the current alignment up to the Sohna bypass and from there it will be greenfield (new) alignment till Vadodara,” stated a highway ministry authentic.

Gadkari stated the paintings for the Vadodara-Surat stretch of the parkway has been awarded and the tenders for the Surat-Mumbai stretch might be out quickly. “This entire parkway will bring building to the undeveloped regions and hinterland in Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh to spur enlargement and some backward areas will even shine like Gurugram. Industrial and business building will generate jobs. We are actually looking at building highways on new alignment reasonably than just increasing the present stretches to decentralise building,” he stated.

TOI on March 4 had first reported how the highways ministry will focus more on building greenfield roads reasonably than stay on increasing the present 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 an offer to have the provision for a high-speed rail hall alongside the Gurugram-Vadodara stretch.

The minister stated paintings will get started at 40 places simultaneously in order that the brand new parkway becomes operational. Since the parkway will cross via unexplored regions and backward areas, the bills for land acquisition might be less. The land acquisition bills for the Gurugram-Vadodara stretch could be within the range of Rs five,000 crore to Rs 6,000 crore, which is sort of one-third of what National Highway Authority of India would have spent for purchasing land for building the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway.

Sources stated the highways ministry just lately remodeled its plan to increase the earlier proposed Delhi-Jaipur Expressway up to Vadodara. “Since now we have already began paintings on the Vadodara-Mumbai stretch, building the Gurugram-Vadodara hall will make the shuttle clean from Delhi up to Mumbai. Delhi-Mumbai highway carries about 15% of the country’s overall cargo site visitors and this is likely to grow. So, the will for a greenfield parkway was once felt,” stated a ministry authentic.
