The proposed Delhi-Dehradun expressway will curtail the journey time between the 2 cities by a whopping 4 hours and can act as a catalyst for the financial improvement of the area, the Centre mentioned right now, including the highway is designed for driving at a minimal pace of 100 kilometre per hour.
The motorway can have an elevated 12-kilometer stretch to allow unhindered motion of animals. Will probably be Asia’s largest such wildlife hall.

This would be the nation’s first freeway the place there will probably be a 12-kilometer-long elevated hall for cover of wildlife,” the federal government mentioned in a press release.
The expressway can have a complete 25 kilometres of elevated highway – 6 kilometres in open, 14 in tunnels. The six-lane freeway will cross by way of pristine forest areas.
