"Going to be inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi Ji on 4th Feb, the Sohna-Dausa stretch of the #Delhi_Mumbai_Expressway will reduce the travel time between Delhi and Jaipur to around two hours," Gadkari, the road transport and highways minister, said in a tweet.
The distance between Delhi and Jaipur is around 270 km.
The Sohna (Haryana)-Dausa (Rajasthan) stretch is the first leg of the new Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.
At nearly 1,390 kilometres, Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will be India's longest expressway and will reduce travel time between Delhi and Mumbai from 24 hours to 12 hours.
Covering a distance of 1,450 km, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is a true example of world-class highway construction.— Nitin Gadkari (@nitin_gadkari) January 30, 2023

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, will cover Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.
