Since this is an important upcoming project, it probably deserves its own thread. Land Acquisition for Phase 1 of the Expressway has started in both Haryana and Punjab. The Project has been split into two sections, based on the state. The Haryana Section seems to be more advanced in the land acquisition process according to the land acquisition portal. Phase 1(Delhi-Gurdaspur) will be completely greenfield, while Phase 2(Gurdaspur-Katra) is likely a brownfield expansion of the existing highway.

And how many lanes is it? Thread title says 4-laned, but is this still true in the finally agreed plan? Many feel 4-laned may be enough for Gurdaspur - Katra stretch, but not for Delhi - Gurdaspur stretch; latter will need 6-laned.

Which parts are actual greenfield expressways?? Both Delhi to gurdaspur and the spur branch to amritsar are greenfield right? What about the dotted green Amritsar-Gurdaspur section? Is it some future proposal since they marked it on the map?

Delhi-Katra Expressway to pass through over 270 villages of Jammu division

Jammu: The work on much awaited Delhi-Katra Expressway, which started last month, will be expedited and it will pass through 279 villages of the Union Territory as the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has issued land acquisition notification in accordance with the new proposal.

According to reliable sources, the Detailed Project Report (DPR) and survey work for the proposed expressway from Keedi Gandial in Kathua district has started last month.

On entry into Jammu and Kashmir, the process of land acquisition related to this expansion or expansion of four-lane from 432.3 km route to 588.5 km will now be expedited. Official sources said that the land of this expressway entering the Union Territory from Kathua district is 37 villages (20 villages in Hiranagar and six villages in Nagri Parole as well as land of 13 villages in Marheen tehsil) are included.

In Samba district, (28 villages of Samba, 14 in Ghagwal tehsil, 21 in Vijaypur, five in Bari Brahmana, one in Ramgarh and one in Rajpura) are included.

The Expressway in the UT will be of 157 km length, sources said adding that the length of the expressway will be 43.4 km in Kathua district, about 25 km in Samba district, 72 km in Jammu district and 16.5 km in Reasi district.

NHAI clears Rs 4k cr project; to provide faster connectivity to Chandigarh from Ludhiana

The NHAI has cleared a Rs 4,000 crore project that includes faster connectivity to Chandigarh from Ludhiana, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways said on Friday. This will be part of the upcoming Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway. The project, on completion, will reduce travel time between Ludhiana and Chandigarh to less than one hour from the present 1.5 hours while also reducing travel time from Delhi Airport to Chandigarh Airport to two hours via Urban Extension Road-II (UER-II), Delhi-Katra Expressway. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is developing the 670 km Delhi-Amritsar-Katra greenfield expressway, which would provide connectivity to Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Gurdaspur and Jammu, under the ambitious Bharatmala Pariyojana.

"To provide express connectivity to Chandigarh from Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar, a greenfield spur from Ludhiana-Ropar road to Kharar (Chandigarh) has been approved. "With the proposed connectivity, the travel time between Chandigarh-Amritsar would reduce to two hours in comparison to the present travel time of four hours," the spokesperson said.

The proposed road is being developed under the flagship Bharatmala Pariyojana and would involve an investment of around Rs 4,000 crore. The detailed project report for the proposed road is in progress, the spokesperson added. The proposed expressway/greenfield highway and other related developments would have major impact in reducing travel to tourist/ religious/industrial centres of northern India and would reduce the travel time from Delhi to Chandigarh to two hours from about five hours, Delhi to Manali to eight hours from about 14 hours and Delhi to Amritsar to four hours from about eight hours, the spokesperson added.

NHAI is already constructing the access controlled Ismailabad-Jind-Narnaul National Highway (NH-152D). A detailed project report has also been initiated for making the existing Ismailabad-Ambala section access controlled and developing greenfield Ambala-Chandigarh access controlled highway. With this, the travel time from Delhi Airport to Chandigarh Airport (via UER-II, Delhi-Katra Expressway), will reduce to two hours.

Further, in order to improve the connectivity to major economic and tourist centres in Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, a greenfield alignment has now been proposed to connect the expressway from Ludhiana with Ropar (85 kms). The stretch from Ropar to Manali is already being four-laned, the spokesperson said, and added that with the proposed greenfield alignment, Delhi-Amritsar Expressway would now also provide alternative connectivity to Manali and Leh.
