At nearly 1,390 km, Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will be India's longest expressway and will reduce travel time between Delhi and Mumbai from 24 hours to 12 hours.
It is likely to be completed by March 2023 and is being built as part of the first phase of the 'Bharatmala Pariyojana'. The eight-lane expressway, expandable to 12 lanes, covering Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, is expected to halve the commute time between the national capital and the country's financial hub from nearly 24 hours to 12 hours.
