New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil the Haryana section of the eight-lane Dwarka Expressway, a key project that will improve traffic movement and reduce congestion between Delhi and Gurugram on the National Highway-48 on Monday. The Haryana section of the expressway, spanning 19 km, has been constructed at a cost of around Rs 4,100 crore. It comprises two packages: a 10.2-km stretch from Delhi-Haryana Border to Basai Rail-over-Bridge (ROB) and an 8.7-km stretch from Basai ROB to Kherki Daula. The expressway will also offer direct connectivity to the IGI Airport in Delhi and Gurugram Bypass.

Gurugram Police Issues Traffic Advisory

Gurugram Traffic Police has issued an advisory barring heavy vehicles from using the road on Dwarka Expressway, which will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 11.

A senior traffic police officer said the prime minister will also address a rally near Antriksh Chowk on the same day, which will cause traffic snarls in the area.

He advised people travelling from Dwarka Clover Leaf to IMT to avoid Antriksh Chowk route till 4 pm on March 11, unless it is absolutely essential.

“Antriksh Chowk Road will be shut for a while due to the rally crowd. Moreover, heavy vehicles will not be allowed on Dwarka Expressway from 5 pm on Sunday, so all heavy vehicle drivers should take KMP instead,” the advisory issued on Saturday said.
