    Sohna-Dausa stretch is ready and is set for inauguration by prime minister Narendra Modi very soon, Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari said on Wednesday (7).

    Soon to be inaugurated Sohna (Haryana)-Dausa (Rajasthan) section is the first leg of the flagship expressway project of the Government of India, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

    The Sohna-Dausa stretch will be a significant connectivity channel that will reduce the massive 270 km distance between Delhi and Jaipur to two hours of travel time. It will also divert traffic load from busy, congested highways such as National Highway-8 and the main Delhi-Gurugram-Jaipur corridor. The stretch will originate at NH-919 from Bhirawati village in Sohna and terminate at Kolgaon in Ferozepur Jhirka.

    The corridor is set to open soon after the inauguration, which will bring forth a boom in Gurugram’s real estate, especially in sectors which share proximity with the Sohna-Dausa stretch.

    Sohna-Dausa stretch will establish Sohna as a multi-utility residential corridor connecting people to different states like Delhi, Maharastra, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat. The stretch is expected to give a major boost to the area’s real estate, especially luxury housing market.

    The Sohna-Dausa stretch is part of the Delhi – Mumbai Expressway, hailed as India’s longest expressway, which is 1,390 km long. Once the project is completed, it will only take 12 hours to travel between Delhi and Mumbai, which currently subsumes 24 hours. Following global engineering standards, the DME has no sharp turns and drivers will get more than 500 metres of continuous straight visibility.

    The eight-lane (expandable to 12-lane) under-construction access-controlled expressway’s foundation was laid on March 8, 2019 by Gadkari in the presence of then ministers Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley. The total project value including the land acquisition cost is around Rs 1 lakh crore.

    The alignment is passing through regions such as Mewat in Haryana and Dausa in Rajasthan besides Madhya Pradesh.
