The expressway will start from the outer region of Gurugram, covering a distance of approximately 225 km till Jaipur ring road.
“Agra-Delhi is also considered an express highway but it is not as per the expressway standard. After Mumbai-Pune expressway, the Delhi-Jaipur stretch will be the second express highway in the country,” said Gadkari while laying foundation stone for the expressway at an event held in Dausa city of Rajasthan.
The expressway is expected to get completed within the next 15 months and will cost Rs 16,000 crores.
Currently, the total duration of the journey is around six hours.
The new expressway is expected to have CCTVs for close monitoring of violators and help in additional road safety.
