The project will feature the construction of an elevated road corridor. Impressively, the stretch will run from Mahipalpur to Manesar. Moreover, it will serve as an upper deck of the expressway. Currently, the road is the main route for traffic in and out of Delhi and Gurugram. Thus, it will also feature the construction of a junction right at Mahipalpur. As a result, the junction will connect to the Dwarka Expressway. Thereafter, some traffic that runs towards Gurugram will be diverted from Mahipalpur.
