The Engineering Marvel: India’s First Hybrid 14-Lane Expressway Between Delhi To Meerut Opens!
Travelling between two cities has always been a headache for some of us. Especially when it comes to travelling for longer periods of time in the scorching heat of the summer, it is an utterly daunting task. It is taxing not only for the passenger but also for the driver who not only has to face the long hour travel but also face the heat. Considered as one of the most-frequented roads, driving from Delhi to Meerut takes about 2.5 hours on an average. The 82.5 Km drive is definitely not a joke for those who hate travelling in the summer time.
Keeping this in mind, the government is all set to unveil India's First Hybrid 14-Lane Highway which will reduce the travel time from 2.5 hours to just 40 minutes!
