Delhi-Mumbai In 12 Hours By Road
The Ministry is currently working on a Super Expressway that will make every road trip between Delhi and Mumbai a dream come true, and you will be able to cover the distance approximately 1,410 km in 12 hours. Mr. Nitin Gadkari, the Minister for Road Transport and Highways, explained the way this Expressway will develop, he said, “In the first phase, Delhi will be connected to Jaipur and Vadodara to Mumbai via super expressways. We plan to construct expressways from Jaipur to Kota in Rajasthan and then from Kota to Vadodara. This will reduce the travel time between Delhi and Mumbai to less than 12 hours as compared to nearly 24 hours at present.” The Ministry is looking at this project from several angles. Along with reducing the travel time by almost half, the project will bring home the standards of developed nations like USA and Germany. The calculation of the road construction, for example, will be different than what it used to be. “Across the world, the lane formula is used to calculate road construction, but we calculate the linear length in India,” Gadkari told He added that, “This means if we construct 10 km of 14 lanes and 10 km of two lanes, it is counted only as 10 km and the length of all lanes is not taken into account.”
