Delhi Gurugram New Route With Express Entry Exit Coming. 2 Minutes Transit to Borders Now.

Residents and commuters between Delhi and Gurugram have a reason to rejoice as travel between these two cities is set to become hassle-free.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has completed the construction of the link road connecting Delhi and Gurugram, part of the Dwarka Expressway project.

This development is a precursor to the much-anticipated inauguration of the Dwarka Expressway, which promises to facilitate a smoother journey between Delhi and Gurugram, bypassing traffic jams and red lights.

Preparing for the Launch

Initially, two sections of the Dwarka Expressway are being prepared for opening. These include Package 2, connecting Dwarka Sector 21 in Delhi to the Gurugram border, and Package 3, extending from the Delhi-Gurugram border to the Basai Railway Overbridge.

The connection of these packages is crucial for the operationalization of the highway, allowing travelers from Gurugram to reach Dwarka Sector 21 via an underpass.

Anticipated Inauguration

The Dwarka Expressway is expected to open to the public soon, with sources hinting at an inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The opening is likely to be scheduled before the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections, although a specific date has not been set.

Gurugram’s MP, Rao Inderjit Singh, mentioned that the Prime Minister is expected to inaugurate the expressway in the first week of March.
