About the Dwarka Expressway Gurugram Stretch

  1. The 19 km stretch of the Dwarka Expressway in Haryana has been developed at an approximate cost of Rs. 4,100 crore. This segment is divided into two packages: the first spans 10.2 km from the Delhi-Haryana Border to Basai Rail-over-Bridge (ROB), and the second covers an 8.7 km distance from Basai ROB to Kherki Daula.
  2. The third and fourth sections, totaling approximately 19 km, are located in Gurugram, while the initial two segments, totaling 10 km, are situated in Delhi. Starting from Shiv Murti near Mahipalpur on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway, it passes through Dwarka Sector 21, the Gurugram border, Basai, and concludes near Kherki Daula on the national highway.
  3. The Expressway is an entirely access-controlled, grade-separated 14-lane corridor, representing a pioneering project in India. It features four multi-level interchanges, incorporating tunnels or underpasses, ground-level road sections, and elevated flyovers.
  4. Notably, it includes an 8-lane elevated structure alongside India’s first 4 km long 8-lane tunnel near IGI airport, described as a ‘shallow tunnel’ due to its less intrusive construction method, as per a report by Times of India. The starting point of the Expressway includes an interchange with two underpasses beneath NH 48, serving over 3 lakh vehicles daily. Its primary goal is to ease traffic congestion and reduce vehicular pollution in the Delhi NCR region.
  5. Importantly, this expressway will provide direct connectivity to the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi and the Gurugram Bypass, significantly enhancing transportation efficiency in the region.
