Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways and MSMEs Nitin Gadkari has inaugurated the 22-km long stretch from Dasna to Hapur of Delhi-Meerut Expressway.
The 82-kilometre long Delhi-Meerut Expressway connects Delhi with Meerut in western Uttar Pradesh. Rs 8,346 crore is likely to be spent on the project.
The third package from Dasna in Ghaziabad to Hapur is over 22 km long, with a civil cost of Rs 1,989 crore. This 6-lane section has 2+2 lane service roads on either sides, and a 4.68-km long 6-lane elevated corridor at Pilkhuwa.
The project, which is expected to help in decongesting National Capital Region (NCR), involves construction of a major bridge across Upper Ganga Canal, seven new minor bridges, a flyover at Hapur bypass, 11 vehicular underpasses, two pedestrian underpasses, two foot overbridges, six major junctions and 105 minor junctions.
