The Sohna-Dausa portion of the Delhi-Mumbai Motorway will officially open on February 12 according to Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will perform the ceremony. On February 4th, the highway was scheduled to open, however, that time was moved.

The Sohna-Dausa section will reduce the travel time from Delhi to Jaipur to about two hours. Delhi and Jaipur are separated by about 270 kilometres. Sohna to Dausa is the first segment of the new Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

The Delhi-Mumbai Highway will be the longest highway in India with a length of roughly 1,390 kilometres. It will reduce the travel time between Delhi and Mumbai’s two largest cities from 24 to 12 hours. It is being built as a part of the first phase of the “Bharatmala Pariyojana,” and it should be done by March 2023.

The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will make the travel time between Delhi and Jaipur shorter by around two hours. The ministry believes that the 1,450 km long route is a prime example of high-calibre highway construction. Two important cities’ economic activity will accelerate significantly, thanks to the road.
