Union govt gives in-principle nod to Doon-Delhi elevated expressway

The Union government has given in-principle nod to the construction of an elevated expressway between Dehradun and New Delhi which will reduce the distance between the two cities to 180 kms.

According to an official release, the government’s go-ahead to the project was conveyed to Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat by the National Highway Authority of India Chairman S S Sandhu who made a courtesy call to the former at his residence.

The Chief Minister said the construction of the highway will boost tourism and prove to be a milestone in its economic development.

He added that it will reduce the distance between Dehradun and the national capital to 180 kms and the state government will extend all support to the NHAI for the construction of the elevated highway.

Currently, the distance between Dehradun and Delhi is around 250 kms. Work on the highway, which will reduce travel time between the two cities to two and a half hours, will begin soon, Sandhu stated.
