Believe it or not! Delhi-Chandigarh by road in 2 hours will be a reality by June 2023

The distance between Delhi airport to Chandigarh could soon be covered in just two hours. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is promising this will be a reality by June 2023 as it has set tight schedules for the completion of Dwarka Expressway and Urban Extension Road in Delhi, Trans-Haryana and the Delhi-Amritsar-Katra expressways, the Times of India mentioned in a report.

Although the new expressways will reduce the distance between the two points by 20 km to 240 km as compared to 260 km now on the Delhi-Chandigarh link, the travel time will be reduced by half as commuters will travel through five expressways. “At permitted speed of 120 kmph on expressways, a car can cover this 240 km in just two hours,” the publication quoted an NHAI official as saying.

Terming the big push for highway networks as “only a trailer”, highways minister, Nitin Gadkari has said the web of expressways in this part of the country including the Delhi-Mumbai one will transform the way people travel on roads. NHAI chairman K K Sandhu said the completion of the projects will result in seamless connectivity across the region.
