More than 80 percent of the work on the 1,386 km long Delhi-Mumbai Expressway – the longest expressway in the country – has been completed.

A major infrastructure development, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, is poised to significantly enhance travel between Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, and Maharashtra starting this December. This expansive project, spanning 1,386 km and divided into nine phases, is nearing completion with eight phases expected to be operational by year-end. Currently, two phases of the expressway are already operational with traffic movement underway.

According to the National Authority of India (NHAI), more than 80 percent of the work on the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway – the longest expressway in the country – has been completed. This includes 96 percent of the work from Delhi to Vadodara, measuring about 845 km. The remaining work will also be completed in time.

Scheduled to open by December are several crucial segments: Sapur to Jawaharlal Nehru Port (95 km), Surat to Virar in Mumbai (291 km), Bharuch to Surat (38 km), Madhya Pradesh border to Gujarat (148 km), and Sawai Madhopur to Jhalawar (159 km). Additionally, Vadodara to Bharuch (87 km) has been completed but awaits public opening.

Current operational sections include the 293 km stretch from Delhi to Dausa Sawai Madhopur and the 245 km Jhalawar-Ratlam-MP/Gujarat border segment.

Looking ahead, the final leg connecting Haryana to Mumbai is anticipated to be completed later this year. However, the section linking DND Delhi and Jewar to Sohna is slated for completion by June 2025, necessitating an additional 90 km of expressway construction.

The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway promises to streamline travel from Sohna, Haryana, traversing Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat before concluding in Maharashtra. This will notably benefit commuters from major cities including Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Jaipur, Ajmer, Kishangarh, Kota, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Sawai Madhopur, Bhopal, Ujjain, Indore, Surat, and their neighboring areas.
