A highway connecting NH-1 near Narela in northwest Delhi to NH-8 near Mahipalpur in south Delhi will be constructed soon by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). This highway will be 79 km long.

NHAI is also going to build Delhi-Panipat and Delhi-Alwar Regional Rapid Transit Systems (RRTS) projects along NH-1 and NH-8. It will help in decongesting various areas of the capital city.

The decision was taken in a high-level meeting of NHAI chairman Deepak Kumar, secretary of housing and urban affairs Durga Shankar Mishra, DDA vice chairman Uday Pratap Singh and MD of National Capital Regional Transport Corporation (NCRTC) VK Singh in Delhi.

“NHAI has given in-principle approval for these at a meeting on Wednesday called by the housing and urban affairs (HUA) ministry,” an official said.

NHAI is going to prepare  a feasibility report  in a month’s time. A part of the costing will be borne by Delhi Development Authority.

The RRTS prohect will cost RS 16,500 crore. The estimated cost of 180 kilometer- long Delhi to Alwar corridor via Gurugram and Rewari is Rs 37,000 crore. The project will be completed in next 36 months.
