Earlier, it was reported that the central government had managed to save an amount of around Rs 16,000 crore on the 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 Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will be completed in as many as 51 packages. Once the highway project is completed, the length of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will be 1,320 kilometres in total.
Earlier this year, it was also reported that the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will have a lane for electric vehicles as well. For the plan of having a lane for electric vehicles, Gadkari had urged private companies to invest alongside the government in developing the proposed electric lane on the highway. Gadkari had earlier said that serious private players who are willing to invest in the Rs 1.03 lakh crore expressway will get support from the Centre in terms of policies.
