195 km super e-way to link Delhi, Jaipur

GURUGRAM: The land acquisition process has started for a new ‘super expressway’ the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is building between Delhi and Jaipur that will reduce the distance between the two cities by around 40 km.
The new speedway will, however, not originate in Delhi. It will branch out from the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway near the Kherki Daula toll plaza in Gurgaon and pass through seven districts before terminating at the Rajasthan capital. Its total length will be 195km, as opposed to around 235km that one needs to travel to get to Jaipur from the same point, with a main carriageway of six lanes (three on each side). The road, officials said, will be fully access-controlled.
It is, however, unlikely to bring the commuting time between Gurgaon and Jaipur down to 90 minutes+ , as Union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari had recently said while speaking of this ‘super expressway’ but will still cut by half or more the total commuting time to the Pink City. Officials said the ‘super expressway’ would make the Gurgaon-Jaipur journey possible in 120 minutes, which will be a feat no less remarkable, since at present, the journey takes anywhere between four and five hours, or even more if there is heavy traffic.
