The Western Coastal Freeway is a 29.3 kilometre long system of in-shore and undersea tunnels, bridges, viaducts, reclaimed roads, interchanges, BRT, public spaces/promenades that will connect the southern end of the island city at Marine Drive to the northwestern suburb of Kandivali, in the city of Bombay/Mumbai. Construction starts in October this year.

I hope they will refine such issues in the actual project. But India has some weird road layouts. For example the new Agra - Lucknow Expressway has three lanes in each direction, but at some interchanges it briefly widens out to as much as six lanes in one direction before merging back to three lanes.

I like how they blended drone footage with a render of the new road and surroundings. They really spent some money and effort in getting this video produced. It captures the scenery and skyline of Mumbai and combines it with the proposed project.

It certainly looks like it; I'd wait for the finer details to be made public, though.

India's longest bridge was recently inaugurated in Assam. It spans the Lohit River, a tributary to the mighty Brahmaputra. It is 9.15 kilometers long.

The Kota Bridge or Kota Chambal or Kota Cable Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge under load testing in Kota, Rajasthan, India. The bridge is situated on the Kota Bypass. It crosses the Chambal River just outside the city.

Gurgaon has seen many such "signal-free" roads being built in the past 2 years. Hasn't really done much to improve traffic though..




Here is the Delhi-Gurgaon highway. There are few more expressways under construction aimed to reduce the congestion on the main highway

The Agra Lucknow Expressway is a 302 km controlled-access highway or expressway, constructed by the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is currently the longest expressway in the country (though not for long). It reduces the time from agra to lucknow to just 3h from 6 hours previously

Bharatmala project

NDA to kick off India’s most ambitious roads programme ever


Quote:
New Delhi: To give a boost to its ambitious Bharatmala plan, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government will bring all future road projects such as economic corridors and coastal roads under its aegis.

The total investment for this flagship programme is estimated at Rs10 trillion—the largest ever outlay for a government road construction scheme.

According to government officials working out the details of the scheme, the total road length to be developed as expressways under Bharatmala will be around 51,000km. In the first phase 29,000km will be developed with an outlay of Rs5.5 trillion.

Bharatmala will replace the National Highways Development Project (NHDP) which is expected to be completed this year, with only 10,000km of highway construction left under the scheme launched in 1998 by then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The decision to merge these road projects with Bharatmala was taken in a meeting earlier this month. Also, the marquee project would be vetted by the Public Investment Board (PIB) headed by expenditure secretary before the Union cabinet’s approval is sought.

“A cabinet note on details of the project will be soon circulated among the members of PIB by the ministry of road transport and highways,” said a government official requesting anonymity.

Apart from the expenditure secretary as its chairman, the PIB also comprises secretaries in the department of economic affairs, Niti Aayog, statistics and programme implementation, and ministry of environment, forests and climate change.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that projects such as Sagarmala and Bharatmala will prepare a strong base for infrastructure development, enabling a person to travel across the country on a single road.

The Sagarmala programme envisages construction of new ports to harness the country’s 7,517km coastline and set up of as many as 142 cargo terminals at major ports at an estimated cost of Rs93,000 crore.

“The road ministry has already started its preparation of the project by outsourcing work of detailed project reports for various projects. The cabinet note for Bharatmala is likely to be circulated by year-end so that the project is government’s major announcement in the Union budget,” said a second government official who also didn’t wish to be identified.

As part of the radical rethinking on improving the transportation architecture, India will invest as much as Rs3.96 trillion in creating and upgrading infrastructure this financial year. The NDA government has evolved a new integrated infrastructure planning paradigm comprising roads, railways, waterways and civil aviation.

India has an ambitious highways construction goal of 41km per day. The current rate of construction is 22-23km per day.

“As per the discussions the road map is ready from the ministry of road transport. In case of projects to be implemented under the EPC (engineering-procurement-construction) model, the National Highway Authority of India will be given full autonomy irrespective of project cost. However, in case of projects under public private partnership (PPP), the projects after a certain amount will go to the ministry of road transport and highways for clearance,” said a third government official requesting anonymity.

The government had awarded 9,655km of highways construction contracts till February out of a target of 25,000km. It has also raised its construction target to 15,000km as against 6,000km constructed last year. Out of this 6,467km was constructed till February.

Queries emailed to the spokesperson for the ministry of road transport and highways on Monday remained unanswered.

Delhi - Dasna - Meerut Expressway | 150 kms | 14/8/6 lanes | U/C

From wikipedia:

Delhi–Meerut Expressway (Hindi: दिल्ली-मेरठ एक्सप्रेस वे) is a planned 150 kilometres (93 mi) controlled-access expressway, connecting Delhi with Meerut via Dasna in Ghaziabad in India. While the present stretch of National Highway 24 (NH-24) up to Uttar Pradesh Gate will be widened to 14 lanes from the present eight, the road between UP Gate and Dasna will be eight-laned. The next phase of the expressway will be built on a new alignment from Dasna to Meerut—a six-lane stretch joining Meerut bypass. The 28-kilometre (17 mi) stretch between Nizamuddin Bridge and Dasna is one of the most congested in the NCR. The traffic flow is likely to increase considering dozens of new residential projects coming up along this stretch of NH-24. The total project cost is ₹78 billion (US$1.2 billion).
