“90 km long Delhi–Meerut Expressway will help commuters coming to Delhi, Meerut, Ghaziabad, and Noida will also reduce pollution. By March 2019, the work will be completed and the journey from Delhi to Meerut will be possible in only 40 minutes. The distance which earlier took one hour will now take only 15 minutes," said Gadkari.
The expressway is under construction since 2015 and is expected to be completed by March 2019. The estimated cost of the project is 841.5 crores.
The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has divided the project into four packages- Nizamuddin Bridge Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border, Delhi- Uttar Pradesh border- Dasna, Dasna-Hapur and Dasna-Meerut. (ANI)
