Breakthrough in the Delhi-Dehradun expressway project

In a breakthrough in the Delhi-Dehradun Expressway project, the last 20-km stretch that passes through the eco-sensitive zone of Raja Ji National Park is being constructed, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the union minister said the tunnel intends to protect the surrounding wildlife. “Breakthrough achieved on Delhi-Dehradun Expressway project. The last 20km stretch passes through the eco-sensitive zone of Raja Ji National Park where Asia's longest elevated wildlife corridor (12km) is being constructed that includes 340 m Daat Kali tunnel,” Gadkari said.

Once completed, the new six-lane highway would reduce travel time between Dehradun-Delhi from 6 hours to 2.30 hours and Delhi-Haridwar from 5 hours to 2 hours, he said in the statement.

Delhi-Dehradun Expressway will directly connect the two cities after crisscrossing areas like Loni, Baghpat, Shamli, Saharanpur, and Ganeshpur in Uttar Pradesh. Uttarakhand will have 3.6 km of the expressway while around 16 kilometres will pass through Uttar Pradesh.
