Work is going on fast on the project to connect Delhi and Mumbai with high-speed road network. The construction work of the first section of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway has been completed.
New Delhi: The construction work of the stretch from Sohna (Haryana) to Dausa (Rajasthan up to Baulli (Sawai Madhopur)) has been completed. With the completion of the construction work of the expressway, on one hand, the travel time of the common people will be saved, on the other hand, commercial activities will also get a boost. Goods vehicles will also be able to reach their destination in less time than before.
The construction work of the 247 km road on the Sohna-Dausa section of the expressway till Baulli in Rajasthan has been completed. Thousands of crores of rupees have been spent on its construction. This construction work has been completed under the first phase of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway. This is likely to reduce the travel time by almost half. From Delhi and Haryana, many parts of Rajasthan can be reached easily as compared to earlier.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was to inaugurate the Sohna-Dausa section on February 4, 2023, but it has been postponed due to some unavoidable reasons. Now PM Modi will formally inaugurate it on 12 February. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari has given information about this by tweeting.
Regarding the opening date of the Sohna-Dausa section, Nitin Gadkari made 2 tweets at an interval of a few hours. In the first tweet, he informed about the inauguration on 4 February. After a few hours, he made another tweet and told that the Sohna-Dausa section will be inaugurated on 12 February.
It will also be easier to go to Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan through the Sohna-Dausa section of Delhi-Mumbai. After travelling 180 kilometres on this section, one has to take an exit at Dausa which will connect to the Agra-Jaipur highway. From here, Jaipur can be reached after a journey of about one and a quarter to one and a half hours.
Vehicles will be able to run at a speed of 120 km per hour on the Sohna-Dausa stretch. This will be the maximum speed limit. There is a possibility of completing the construction work by Sawai Madhopur in March 2023. Ranthambore and Tonk can be reached from here.
