By 2023, Indians will be able to drive on the world-class Delhi-Mumbai expressway which will also be one of India’s longest expressways. The trip is estimated at 12 hours (we almost took that long from the Taj Mahal in Agra to Delhi!)
Expressways are major projects of the Modi Government.
In the next three years, the Modi government is planning to build three of 22 expressways and green corridors. A total of 22 new expressways and green corridors will be built by FY25. This is change on a massive scale.
Once completed, the total length of the Delhi-Mumbai expressway will be 1,320 km.
How long now (before the expressway) to drive from Delhi to Mumbai?
Officials estimate at least 24 hours, but I think that is wildly optimistic.
In other words, this infrastructure upgrade will make a huge difference to India.

One thought on “Delhi-Mumbai expressway part of transformation of Indian highways”
There is also Chennai Bangalore expressway announced in the budget. The work for this ~350 km expressway is going to start soon. Japan has prepared the detailed project report for this expressway and several industrial townships have been planned adjacent to this expressway
