Highlights of Gurgaon to Jaipur highway
This highway will originate from Delhi-Gurgaon expressway near the Kharki Toll Plaza in Gurgaon and will pass through 423 villages of seven districts; Jaipur, Alwar, Sikar, Rewari, Mahendergarh, Jhajjar and Gurgaon.
This ‘super expressway’ will cost Rs. 6,530 crores with the reintegration and resettlement cost of Rs. 5000 crores.
The Jaipur-Gurgaon journey will now be completed in 120 minutes. This trip previously was taking four to five hours.
The former Greenfield Expressway had a starting point of Indira Gandhi International Airport and termination at Daulatpura in Jaipur while this new expressway will terminate at Chandwaji in Jaipur.
The total area of land to be acquired for the making of new highway measures about 1,755 hectares.
There will be two flyovers, 4 Rail overbridges, six lanes and 11.5 km of the elevated portion in this Gurgaon to Jaipur highway.
This highway is a second, advanced expressway after Mumbai-Pune expressway, made of cement concrete.
This super highway is expected to have CCTV for close monitoring.
The distance of Gurgaon to Jaipur highway will be 195 km.
This central government Yojana of constructing a new road to reduce travelling time between Delhi and Jaipur is appreciable. But one point should be taken into consideration, and that is the safety of the passengers travelling on this road. To reduce the number of accidents on these roads, primary driving methods, use of right indications as lane changes, using brake during fast driving, etc. should be lectured at the Road and Transport office level.
