New Delhi: Long-awaited Delhi-Meerut Expressway was opened for public use on 1st April, 2021. Union Minister Nitin Gadkari tweeted about the same saying that the travel time for Delhi to Meerut has been decreased to just 45 mins from 2.5 hours.

PM Modi inaugrated the work for the expressway back in 2018, when he and Nitin Gadkari travelled in an open jeep on the 14-lane expressway.

The expressway is 96-km long which will let the commuters reach Meerut from Delhi in just 45 mins. Until now commuters travelled through NH 58 to reach Meerut and it took over three hours of time to cover a distance of 70 kms.

The Delhi – Meerut Expressway has a major bridge across the upper Ganga canal, eleven underpasses, six major junctions, flyover at Hapur bypass, seven minor bridges, two underpasses for pedestrians along with 105 minor junctions. The expressway project has been developed with the aim of decongesting the traffic in the national capital and also to reduce the pollution.

Delhi – Meerut Expressway project has been designed for a speed of 120-100 km per hour according to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).

This new road will also the reduce the travel time for reaching Muzaffarnagar, Saharanpur, Haridwar and Dehradun from Delhi.
