PM Modi Inaugurates Gurugram Section Of Dwarka Expressway


Gurugram: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the long-awaited 19-kilometre elevated section of the Dwarka Expressway on Monday. It’s a major relief for the Delhi-Gurugram commuters as the travel time between Dwarka and Gurugram is reduced to just 20 minutes.

The Dwarka expressway is a 28.5-km road, of which the 19-km Gurgaon section has been opened. The entire road is expected to be operational later this year.

Ahead of inaugurating the Gurugram section of the Dwarka Expressway PM Modi expressed the significance of enhancing connectivity across India. Scheduled around noon, the ceremony will mark the dedication of numerous National Highways, scattered across various states, to the nation, or the initiation of their construction.

Conceived in 2006 by the Haryana government, the Dwarka Expressway faced many challenges, including land acquisition issues and legal disputes. The project was delayed for over a decade. In2016, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) intervened to initiate the process.


  • This segment, stretching 19 kilometres and comprising eight lanes, has been meticulously crafted at a cost of approximately ₹4,100 crore.
  • Notably, it encompasses two critical packages: the 10.2-kilometre Delhi-Haryana Border to Basai Rail-over-Bridge (ROB), and the 8.7-kilometre Basai ROB to Kherki Daula, facilitating direct connectivity to the IGI Airport in Delhi and the Gurugram Bypass.
  • Among the array of projects to be inaugurated by the Prime Minister, several stand out prominently. These include the 9.6-kilometer six-lane Urban Extension Road-II (UER-II)-Package 3, spanning from Nangloi-Najafgarh Road to the Sector 24 Dwarka section in Delhi.
  • Three packages constituting the Lucknow Ring Road, developed at a cost of approximately ₹4,600 crores in Uttar Pradesh.
  • The Anandapuram-Pendurthi-Anakapalli section of NH16, formulated at an outlay of around ₹2,950 crores in Andhra Pradesh
