Delhi, Jaipur to get linked by 195-km super expressway

The cities of Delhi and Jaipur will be connected in a better way, thanks to a ‘super expressway’ the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is building.

Land acquisition process has commenced for the project that will bring down the distance between the two cities by around 40 km.

The new road will start from the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway near the Kherki Daula toll plaza in Gurgaon and pass through seven districts before terminating in Jaipur. Its total length will be 195 km.

“Land has been identified and the acquisition process has been initiated. There are two sections of the project in Haryana and Rajasthan. The acquisition process has started on the Haryana side,” Ashok Sharma, project director, NHAI, said.
