List of Operational Expressways:

1. Delhi Gurgaon Expressway
2. Delhi Noida Expressway
3. Noida - Greater Noida Expressway
4. GVK Jaipur Kishangarh Expressway
5. Durgapur Expressway
6. Mumbai-Pune Expressway
7. Ahmedabad-Baroda Expressway
8. Belghoria Expressway
9. Hosur Road Expressway, Bangalore [also Electronic city elevated Expressway/BETL]

List of Under Construction Expressways:

1. Bangalore-Mysore Expressway
2. KMP or Western Peripheral Expressway [NCR region]
3. PV Narsimha Rao Expressway to HIAL
4. Chennai Elevated Expressway
5. Mumbai eastern Freeway that starts from CST
6. Yamuna Expressway (Taj expressway)
7. Western Freeway
-a. Bandra to Worli - Under construction
-b. Worli to Haji Ali - Proposed
-c. Haji Ali to PDP - Proposed
-d. PDP-Marine Drive tunnel - Proposed

List of Under Implementation Expressways:

1. Eastern Peripheral expressway, NCR

3. Ganga Expressway
4. Delhi-Meerut expressway


List of Proposed Expressways:

1. Shimla-Chandigarh Expressway
2. Mumbai - Surat - Baroda Expressway

6. Mumbai trans harbour link+expressway to connect to NH4,17 and MPE
7. Ahmedabad - Rajkot - Proposed.
8. Northern Peripheral Expressway, Gurgaon


A note about Eastern Peripheral Expressway, the construction on this one had to start in July 2008. As soon as I see reliable information that it has actually started, I will move it to under construction list. Till then it will be here.

Also, guys I have tried to make this list as comprehensive as possible. Feel free to give pointers towards new information or corrections.

I will soon start adding pictures and videos. Please contribute to the thread in form of pictures, news update, relevant & mature discussion.


Make sure that picture doesn't screws up formatting. Also, if possible try posting pictures related to only one expressway per post. It makes viewing experience pleasant. Do have relevant captions on all pictures with due credits.

Thanks,
Sumeet.

I don't think "5. Airport Expressway to BIAL" is even conceived yet ... it's not a project at all ... so u can delete it from the list ...

Very nice initiative.

But small correction. Chennai-Bangalore NH is not an expressway! It is a 4 laned national highway.

Then, can i know about Hosur road expressway project/? whats that?

Raghu did some more research on airport expressway to BIAL. It was conceived but probably ended up like one of those projects in India that cannot take off for various unmentionable yet thoroughly regrettable reasons.

Also is it possible to re size that picture so that it doesn't screws up formatting.

People if possible try posting pictures related to only one expressway per post. It makes viewing experience pleasant. Do have relevant captions on all pictures with due credits.

Arul,

you have heard of the elevated tollway called BETL. They have a whole thread on that in bengluru section. Its the same guy. Its a 9 kms long 4 lane access controlled expressway from hosur road and hence the name.


About chennai - bangalore let me research a little more and I will correct it. thanks for your kind comments. Do contribute in whatever way you can and whenever you can.

Ok guys I made few corrections in my u/c expressway list.

1) hosur road expressway and and Electronic City Expressway are the same project. Hence i have deleted the Electronic city expressway from the list.

note this is the same as BETL that has its own thread:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=394998


2) Chennai Elevated Expressway added to the u/c list.
Dedicated thread in chennai section:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=625201

Do cross post pictures and news here. I will add more information and pictures later today.

Delhi closer by 40 minutes now

TOI epaper

Quote:
With the opening of the 3.4km elevated corridor on NH 1 on Wednesday, travellers will be able to avoid the notorious traffic snarls at Panipat — thus cutting down travel time from Delhi to Chandigarh by at least 40 minutes. The flyover, the longest in the country’s NH network, forms part of a 10km toll road developed as an access-controlled highway at Panipat. The six-lane flyover will bypass six major crossings in Panipat city.

And, it’s just one of the upgrades proposed on the route. By the year-end, travellers can expect the entire 96km stretch of NH 1 between Delhi and Panipat to be completely six-laned, NHAI chairman N Gokulram said.

However, the comfort comes at a cost — Rs 20 per oneway trip will be charged as toll tax from private vehicles for the 10km stretch at Panipat. For local cars, the charge will be Rs 5; and for local commercial vehicles, Rs 10. Heavy vehicles will have to pay more. The constructing agency, L&T Panipat Elevated Corridor Pvt Ltd, has built a 20-lane plaza to collect the tax.

The 10km express corridor has been built at a cost of Rs 420 crore. The project was scheduled to be completed by January 2009. But the corridor, constructed on BOT (build, operate, transfer) basis, has been completed six months ahead of schedule. According to estimates, about 60,000 passenger car units use the 10km stretch every day, and half of these will take the elevated corridor. ‘‘The toll amount has been fixed considering the investment involved in the project. The concession period is 20 years,’’ said an NHAI official.

cool suncity. thats awesome news. L&T says by year end it will be 6 laned all the way to delhi. but i am wondering will the expressway be all the way to delhi or will end at its present position ?

If delhi panipat can be connected, it can be extended to Chandigarh and hopefully to jammu and Shimla on a later date.

but this is one awesome project. I have added it to my list.

Delhi to Agra.




Quick Facts:

Length 165.537 Km
Right of Way 100m
Number of Lane 6 Lanes extendable to 8 lanes
Type of Pavement Rigid (Concrete)

Structures
Interchange 7
Main Toll Plaza 3
Toll Plaza on Interchange Loop 7
Underpass 35
Rail Over Bridge 1
Major Bridge 1
Minor Bridge 42
Cart Track Crossing 68
Culverts 204

From their about us section:

Quote:
The Government of Uttar Pradesh has been working proactively to improve the connectivity of the National Capital Region to improve tourist attraction of Taj Mahal at Agra through the new 6 Lanes (extendable to 8 lanes) Access Controlled Expressway with brand name of Taj Expressway.

The Taj needs no introduction. Almost everyone who comes to India makes it a point to make a trip to the Taj. Presently Agra is about 210 km away from Delhi by road. A day visitor normally spends nine to ten traveling hours on a return trip between Delhi and Agra which leaves him with very less time in Agra to see the Taj and other places of historical importance. The concept of the Taj Expressway which was initially conceived with the idea of cutting down on this travel time proposes a 160 km Expressway between Greater Noida and Agra thus reducing the travel time considerably upto 100 minutes only.

For now it seems to be a 10 km (toll) expressway or express corridor.

Thats a cool thread. Thanks Sumeet for taking the initiative.

Btw, Kolkata got another piece of 6-lane ex'way called "Rajarhat Ex'way". Also, Belgharia ex'way is completed if I am not wrong.

Ha !! A new thread on Expressways in India, so graciusly permitted by Suncity !!!. Thats some generosity.

I had initiated one ( in a prev avatar) sometime back, which was abruptly cut off by The Big Mod, saying one was not warranted. without rhyme or reason (against several reasons that I gave repeatedly). The resulting hurt meant sulking for a while, but I did come back. I guess I have some stuff to contribute in this thread, but is it OK for me to expect to hear from Sun first - as to why not then, but now ? Allowing one person, but not another to initiate a thread on a particualr subject !!! Is it duplicity, or change of heart ? Or this post will be taken out as well? In any case, thankfully, the reasoning seems to have prevailed. Good job, Sumeet.

If some of you guys think it is worth it and can sustain a separate expressway thread, then go for it.
I was referring to you as the someone here. So I have not really forgotten your stance.

I believe I did tell you that we could have a separate thread in the future.
