Dwarka Expressway Update
The area called the Dwarka-Gurgaon Expressway is seeing significant buyer and investor interest and is one of the promising realty markets in the National Capital Region (NCR).
Dwarka Expressway, also called the Northern Peripheral Expressway, when complete would be an eight-lane expressway, being developed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) at a cost of R120 crore.
As a part of the Gurgaon-Manesar Master Plan 2021 (Urban Complex Plan), the expressway will connect Dwarka to National Highway 8 and will have 30 metres of green belt on both sides.
The proposed location will stretch 18kms, starting from Dwarka, connecting Palam Vihar and the forthcoming special economic zones in Gurgaon and would join the NH 8 near Kherki Dhaula. It is expected to reduce the travel time from west Delhi by half. Also, the expressway will touch 16 new nearby residential colonies and a commercial corridor.
Before we take up the viability of Dwarka Expressway as a location of interest, let us discuss some of its advantages:
The proposed 18 km expressway is expected to be one of India's widest roads ever, at 150 meters. As a simple comparison, the current Delhi-Gurgaon expressway is 75 meters wide.
The new Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport would be accessible within a few minutes drive and is also close to the new commercial/hotel corridor being developed near the international airport.
It is also close to the 18-hole golf course proposed in Dwarka by the Delhi Development Authority.
Extensive belt reserved for commercial development along the new Dwarka Expressway, which can tap into the population of Dwarka and west Delhi for potential job seekers as well as providing job opportunities in proximity to those living in this area.
