New Fast Road from Delhi to Dehradun Makes Travel Faster!

Road users can expect exciting news as work on the six-lane Delhi-Dehradun Greenfield Access Controlled Expressway progresses. This 212-kilometer highway starts from the Delhi-Mumbai highway close to Akshardham in Delhi. Reports in the media state that the highway is scheduled to open in March of this year.

Shastri Park, Khajuri Khas, the EPE interchange at Khekra near Mandola, Baghpat, Shamli, and Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh are all on the route of the massive project, which is split into four sections and will ultimately reach Dehradun, Uttarakhand. With an estimated cost of around Rs 10,000 crore, the program seeks to drastically cut down on travel time.

Half The Travel Time Between Delhi And Dehradun

After it is finished, the trip from Delhi to Haridwar or Dehradun in Uttarakhand will take around two hours and thirty minutes, respectively. This is a significant decrease from the existing six to five-hour trip.

The 12-kilometer-long wildlife elevated corridor, the longest in Asia, is a feature of the highway that encourages animals to roam freely. A 340-meter tunnel in Dehradun that is close to the Dat Kaali shrine is also constructed with the least amount of disturbance to animals in mind. Additionally, there are many animal passages on the Ganeshpur-Dehradun portion, which reduces the possibility of animal-vehicle incidents.

Boosting The Area Economy

The officials engaged in the project claim that building the corridor will boost tourism as well as the local economy. This all-inclusive project will build five overpasses for vehicles, 110 underpasses for vehicles, 76 kilometres of service roads in areas with high population density, a total of 29 kilometres of elevated sections, and sixteen entry/exit points along the corridor.

The expressway is designed to go at a minimum speed of 100 km/h, with scheduled stops spaced every 25 to 30 kilometres. It is projected that this development will accelerate regional economic growth, especially helping Uttarakhand’s tourist industry. The initiative promises improved road user experiences and increased connectivity while operating in the EPC mode.
