Dwarka Expressway, India's first elevated 8-lane access control urban expressway, being constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 9,000 crore, as part of the Delhi decongestion plan, will be completed by April 2024, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Thursday.

The Expressway will be completed in four packages, he added.

Gadkari was inspecting the Expressway on Thursday along with Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Vinay Kumar Saxena, Union Minister of State General V K Singh, Union Minister of State Rao Inderjit Singh, MP Pravesh Singh Verma and MP Ramesh Bidhuri.

Earlier, Gadkari said that the Dwarka Expressway will be completed in the next 3-4 months and the cost would be about Rs 10,000 crore.

The road transport minister said Dwarka Expressway will have a fully-automated tolling system and the entire project will be equipped with an intelligent transportation system (ITS).

Interacting with the media, Gadkari said a 3-lane service road is being constructed on both sides of the expressway.
