Delhi: The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, which is all set to become India’s longest expressway which is of a length of 1,320 km, has announced that two-wheelers, including scooters and bikes, will not be allowed to ply on the highway. The decision was made keeping in mind the safety purpose and to prevent accidents on the busy stretch of road.
The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is expected to noticeably reduce travel time between the two cities, with the journey expected to take around 12-13 hours which was previously 24 hours. The expressway will also be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including rest areas, fuel stations, as well as emergency services.
The announcement has sparked some criticism, with some two-wheeler riders expressing that they are not happy with the decision and not being able to use the expressway. However, the authorities have clarified that the decision was taken after considering the safety of all road users, and that alternative routes will be made available for two-wheelers.
The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is expected to bring significant economic benefits to the region, with improved connectivity expected to boost trade and investment. The expressway is also expected to create job opportunities and easy access to healthcare and education in the region.
The construction of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is part of the Indian government’s ambitious plan to build a network of highways connecting major cities and improving connectivity across the country. The expressway is expected to be completed by 2023 and is set to become a major landmark in India’s transportation infrastructure.
