As automotive enthusiasts, we love superhighways – after all, they allow you to undertake long road trips safely and help make beautiful and twisty State highways less crowded. We’re eagerly looking forward to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway that’ll connect multiple major urban centres with two of the major metropolitan cities in the country. 

With lower travel times and higher speed limits, the expressway will not only make road trips easier, it’ll also aid logistics for the goods we buy and consume. 

Here are the latest updates and facts about the upcoming Delhi-Mumbai Expressway: 

1: Update: Sohna-Dausa section opening soon

This section of the Expressway will be inaugurated by the Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, on February 12. Connecting the districts of Sohna in Haryana and Dausa in Rajasthan, the interstate highway spans a distance of around 250km. It’s claimed to cut down the travel time between Delhi and Jaipur by half, to around two hours.

2: Where does the Expressway start and end?

DND Flyway

The Expressway will connect the metro cities of Delhi and Mumbai, starting at the Delhi-Noida-Delhi (DND) flyway near Maharani Bagh in Delhi and terminating in the Virar district in Palghar, Maharashtra. 

It’ll cover numerous major cities including Kota, Surat, Vadodara, Godhara, Alwar and the Thane district. 

3: Distance, time and speed limits 

In total, the Mumbai-Delhi Expressway will be 1,350km long upon completion, around 130km less than the existing highway. With eight lanes and top speeds of up to 120kmph planned, the Expressway, it is claimed, will reduce the time it takes to get from Mumbai to Delhi by half. This means the cross-country roadtrip will take only around 12 hours! Currently, it takes over 24 hours to get to Mumbai from Delhi, making it a multi-day road trip. 

4: Amenities 

The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) plans to have up to 93 rest centres along the expressway, at least one every 50km. In addition, there will be plenty of fuel stations and EV charging stations are also in the plans. 

5: Tolls 

For such a long route, the toll will be decided based on how many kilometres of highway you cover, and you’ll have to pay for it at the end of the stretch you’re planning to use on your route. The toll amount is 65 paise per kilometre, which means you could end up spending over Rs 800 in toll fee alone to get from Delhi to Mumbai. 

How much are you looking forward to the full-scale opening of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway? Have you travelled on any of the sections that are already open? Let us know in the comments.
