The 19 kilometer Gurugram section of the long-awaited 29 kilometer Dwarka Expressway that connects Mahipalpur in New Delhi to Kherki Dhaula in Gurugram is likely to be operational in the near future.

Officials from the NHAI have stated that the expressway will be opened in several stages over the course of its completion. There are already sections of the Gurugram stretch that are accessible to the general public, and in January, the remainder of the stretch will open up completely for use. The remaining 10 kilometers in Delhi won't be finished until the middle of 2023, most likely in June of that year. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) had previously stated that this section would be completely open by the end of the year 2022. However, there was a holdup with it.

The Northern Peripheral Road, also known as NH 248-BB or the Dwarka Expressway, begins at Shiv-Murti on NH-8 (the Delhi-Gurugram expressway) and terminates close to the Kherki Daula Toll Plaza after passing through Dwarka Sector 21, the Gurugram border, and Basai. It is anticipated that the situation will become less congested on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway as well as other arterial roads as a result.

Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, had earlier commented on the project, saying that the expressway " will take some of the pressure off of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, which is part of the Delhi-Jaipur-Ahmedabad-Mumbai leg of the Golden Quadrilateral, and other roads that get a lot of traffic, mostly from West Delhi commuters."

Additionally, it is anticipated that approximately fifty to sixty percent of the vehicles currently using NH-8 will be rerouted onto the new expressway, thereby reducing the amount of congestion along Sohna Road and Golf Course Road." The completion of this important project is a key part of the plan to make Delhi, India's capital, less crowded. The minister also mentioned that once the Dwarka Expressway is finished, it will make it easy to get to the new India International Convention Center (IICC) in Sector 25 of Dwarka. Additionally, it will provide alternative connectivity to IGI Airport through the shallow tunnel. The authorities are also holding out hope that the expressway will assist in lowering levels of air pollution in Delhi and the National Capital Region.

This highway is the first elevated urban expressway in India. It also has the longest and widest urban road tunnel in the country. It is a 16-lane access-controlled highway with the provision of a minimum of 3-lane service roads on both sides. The cost of the project, which is being constructed under the flagship Bharatmala Project of the Union government, is estimated to be Rs 9000 crore.

The Way The Dwarka Expressway Goes

The 29-kilometer Dwarka Expressway project is set up so that 18.9 kilometers are in Gurgaon and the other 10.1 kilometers are in Delhi. On both sides of the 16-lane access-controlled road, there will be a service road with at least three lanes. The Dwarka Expressway (NH-8) starts at Shiv-Murti and goes through Dwarka Sector 21, the border with Gurugram, Basai, and ends near Kherki Daula Toll Plaza. It will be 3.6 km long and have eight lanes. It will also have four interchanges with different levels and India's longest and widest road tunnel.

Mahipalpur - Bijwasan - Delhi Haryana Border Route

  • The route starts at Mahipalpur Shiv Murti, which leads to the underpass of the Bijwasan train station.
  • This part of the route is 5.3 km long and starts at Shiv Murti on what used to be called NH-8 but is now called NH48.
  • The route ends near Sector 21, Dwarka, at a rail underpass.
  • A 3.5-kilometer-deep tunnel will be built under the expressway for Rs. 1,000 crores.
  • From Bijwasan to the Delhi-Haryana Border, the underpass rail goes for 4.2 km.

Gurgaon - Kherki Daula Toll Plaza Route

  • It will be 10.2 km from the border between Delhi and Haryana to the Basai rail overbridge.
  • The Gurgaon expressway will go through Sectors 102, 103, 106, 109, 110, 112, and 113.
  • Most of the stretch will be built as an elevated dual carriageway with four lanes on each side. This is because this stretch has a lot of intersections with sector roads that need to be built. At all major intersections, the service roads will be raised above the expressway and run below it. This section will cost Rs. 1,333 crores.
  • On the Dwarka Expressway, it is 8.7 kilometers from the Basai rail overpass to the Kherki Daula Toll Plaza.
  • The NHAI says that this eight-lane expressway will cost Rs. 1,047 crore. M/s Larsen and Toubro Ltd. will be in charge of building the 8.7 km section.
  • The project is to build an elevated structure with eight lanes for the main carriageway of the expressway.

From the Dwarka Expressway to Terminal 3 at IGI Airport

  • The Dwarka Expressway and the IGI Airport T3 Tunnel will be connected by a new low 1.5 km, 4-lane tunnel that will cost Rs. 350 crores and be called the Delhi Airport Tunnel Expressway.
  • As part of the Expressway, a road will be built from north to south that will lead to Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport.
  • Commuters going to and from Munirka, Mehrauli, IIT, and Vasant Kunj will benefit from easier access and less time on the road.
