Delhi–Mumbai Expressway – Information & Status

1350 km Delhi – Mumbai Expressway (DME) project (NH-148N / NE-4) is an under construction 8 lane access-controlled road with a route connecting DND in Delhi with JNPT in Mumbai. It has been designed with a speed limit of 120 km/hr and provision to expand to 12 lanes in the future.

This new greenfield expressway was approved for construction under the Bharatmala Pariyojana programme in 2017, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid its foundation stone on March 9, 2019.

  • Lanes: 8 (expandable to 12)
  • Speed Limit: 120 kmph

Project Overview & Route

The expressway with closed tolling will connect 5 states of Haryana (80 km), Rajasthan (380 km), Madhya Pradesh (370 km), Gujarat (300 km) and Maharashtra (120 km). New industrial townships and Smart Cities have been planned along its route. 92 way side amenities have been planned on either side at an interval of roughly 50 km. 

Its alignment reduces the distance between Delhi and Mumbai by around 150 km and travel time to 13 hours from the current 24 hours. Besides that, the expressway will lead to considerable fuel savings, better ride quality and safety over the existing NH-48 (old NH-8) highway.
