Much awaited Manesar-Palwal KMP stretch to open in April 2016, Gives Hopes for much delayed Dwarka expressway.
The 53 km-long Manesar-Palwal stretch of the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway is set to be launched on April 1 ,2016 by Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari. .
Sudhir Rajpal, MD, HSIIDC, said, “I have asked my team to finish the project by April 1.” It was earlier reported that the state government and industry body HSIIDC were pushing to open the Manesar-Palwal stretch of the expressway before the Happening Haryana investors’ summit. But the project met a roadblock because the last kilometre could not be completed because of a hill in the way of its alignment. The KMP expressway, which is 136 km long, is expected to be finished in the next two years. It will create a high-speed connect between north and south Haryana, including Gurgaon, Faridabad and Palwal, and decongest the national capital territory, with traffic going from south Haryana to north not needing to pass through the capital any more.
