Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is probably one of the most awaited road-development projects in India as of now. It is said to make travelling significantly easier for a lot of routes.

It also features five wildlife corridors for unobstructed wildlife movement. Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Delhi-Dausa-Lalsot package of Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.
