The construction work is progressing well on the Mumbai-Delhi Expressway Project which is being undertaken in the Bharatmala Pariyojana initiative.

The expressway, which is scheduled for completion by 2023, will reduce  travel time between the two major cities to under 13 hours.

The Central government had managed to save an amount of around Rs 16,000 crore on land acquisition front alone. Apart from Delhi and Mumbai, large areas of other states including Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh will also be benefited due to the expressway project.

The overall development work of the Expressway will be completed in as many as 51 packages. Once the highway project is ready, its length will be 1,320 km in total.

For the plan of having a lane for electric vehicles, the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) had urged private companies to invest alongside the government in developing the electric lane. 

The private companies that are willing to invest in the Rs 1.03 lakh crore expressway will get support from the Centre in terms of policies.
