The Delhi-Mumbai Expressway is set to connect with the Trans-Haryana Expressway, and construction is slated to commence next month. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) aims to complete this project within the next 24 months, with an estimated cost of approximately 1400 crores.
The new expressway will start from Alwar in Rajasthan and merge with the Mumbai Expressway. Spanning 86 kilometers, it will feature six lanes and connect to the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway near Paniyala village in Rajasthan. Currently, the Trans-Haryana Expressway (NH 152D) is connected to the Delhi-Jaipur Expressway near Paniyala village.
Benefits of the Linkage: Currently, travelers from Ambala to Mumbai have to enter Delhi due to heavy traffic, adding an extra two and a half hours to their journey. With the construction of this link, commuters from Punjab, Panchkula, Chandigarh, or Ambala, traveling to Mumbai, will no longer need to pass through Delhi. They will connect to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway via the proposed Alwar-Kotputli-Ambala Expressway, saving them 3 to 4 hours of travel time, according to NHAI officials.

Land Acquisition Already Underway: NHAI has already acquired 90% of the land for this project, with 10% of the land belonging to Kotputli. This land acquisition paves the way for the upcoming construction.
Districts Connected by the Trans-Haryana Expressway: The Trans-Haryana Expressway connects several districts, including Mahendragarh, Charkhi Dadri, Rohtak, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Ambala, Jind, Rohtak, and Bhiwani. Residents of these districts will benefit from easier travel to Mumbai without the need to traverse Delhi.
