The big daddy of the road infrastructure projects is the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway - India's longest expressway at 1386 km length with 8-lanes. This access-controlled e-way is being built at the cost of Rs 1 lakh crore. A crown jewel of the ambitious BharatMala Scheme, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is considered to be a game changer in the Modi government's integrated infrastructure connectivity plans. Starting from the DND Flyover in Delhi and passing through Gurgaon – Sohna (in Haryana), it connects Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Bhopal, Indore, Ujjain, Ahmedabad, Surat, and Vadodara. The fully completed 246 km long stretch under the Rajasthan section was recently inaugurated by the Prime Minister and the entire expressway is set to become operational next year. The plan is also to link it with the 88 km, 6-lane Agra-Gwalior Expressway for which construction will start this year and get completed in 2027.
