Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has announced expressway connecting Gurugram near national capital Delhi to Mumbai, country commercial capital.
He said that the time taken to travel between two destinations after the expressway comes into being would be reduced a great deal.
Minister said that the new Expressway is expected to be completed in 3 years and will be passing through two of the nation’s most backward districts Mewat in Haryana and Dahod in Gujarat.
Gadkari revealed that the work for the Vadodara-Surat stretch of the Gurugram-Mumbai Expressway has been awarded and that the tenders for the Surat-Mumbai stretch will be out soon.
The expressway is being propped up to bring development to the undeveloped regions and hinterland in Rajasthan, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh.
This would vastly spur growth and some backward areas will also have an opportunity to come up economically like Gurugram.
The Expressway, from Delhi-Mumbai will provide connectivity to the proposed Chambal Expressway and several other cities, including Jaipur, Kota, Sawai Madhopur, Ujjain, Godhra and Ahmedabad.>
