Unique features of the Delhi to Mumbai Expressway

E-Highway: Government is planning to stretch Delhi to Mumbai Expressway as an e-highway. In this way, trucks, and buses can run at a speed of 120 km/hour to eliminate vehicular pollution. The minimal speed and congestion-free expressway will lower the logistics expenses by up to 70%, as heavy vehicles will use electricity instead of diesel. It will also have 4 dedicated lanes for all-electric vehicles throughout the entire route of eight lanes. Besides, a high barrier of 1.5-metre will be built on both sides of the expressway road for security purposes, and inside slip lanes, the toll plaza will be set up.

Wildlife Crossings: The 8-lane expressway will be around Ranthambore National Park, Sariska Tiger Reserve, and Mukundara National Park, on stretches of 2.5 km. Mukundara National park and Matheran eco-sensitive zone are India’s first eight-lane road tunnels. This longest expressway will include the country’s first animal over bridges that are mainly designed to maintain the wildlife section unaffected by project construction.
