GURUGRAM: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will start the work to complete the remaining 8-km portion of the 28-km-long Dwarka expressway in next three months. NHAI had given the national highway status to Dwarka expressway, which starts from Shiv Murti in Delhi and ends at Kherki Daula in Gurgaon, a few months ago.

The 18.1-km stretch of the road is in Gurugram, while the rest is in Delhi. According to NHAI, it will have to construct 1-km stretch of the highway in New Palam Vihar and a 400-metre stretch in Kherki Daula village to complete the Gurugram portion of road.

In Delhi, while the 6.5-km stretch from Shiv Murti to Bharthal Chowk is part of Urban Extension Road (UER-II), which doesn’t need to be constructed, the remaining 3.4-km part of the road from Bharthal Chowk in Dwarka to Delhi-Haryana border needs to be built.

“The detailed project report has been prepared, and we are going to start work to complete this road in next three months,” Gadkari said, adding the road would improve connectivity between Delhi and Gurugram, and help reduce traffic load on NH-8.

Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar said land acquisition for the Delhi portion of Dwarka expressway was completed. “Most of the issues related to this road have been resolved, and completion of the project will benefit new Gurugram sectors,” said Khattar.

Gadkari also announced that Kherki Daula toll plaza would be shifted to Bilaspur. The project will make the entire stretch from Delhi to the Manesar industrial area toll-free.
