Gurugram to get pollution breather as PM Modi inaugurates KMP Expressway

Gurugram: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the much-awaited Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway on Monday which will bring relief to residents of Gurugram and national capital from high pollution levels.

The Prime Minister also inaugurated the Ballabhgarh-Mujesar Metro line and laid the foundation stone of Vishwakarma Skill University in Palwal.

While addressing the gathering, PM Modi took a dig at UPA, said “this expressway was scheduled to be opened during the commonwealth games.”

“This western peripheral expressway had to be completed during commonwealth games, but we all know what was done back then, this expressway was also a victim of that,” Pm Modi said.

“Now every day 27 km of highways being constructed in India,” PM Modi added.

The Haryana government has constructed the KMP Expressway or the Western Peripheral Expressway.

The highway will reduce time if you are headed from Mumbai/ Jaipur / Gurugram to Chandigarh and Simla and beyond.

However, the cost of land acquisition, utility shifting and project preparation, etc for both the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (executed by National Highways Authority of India) and Western Peripheral Expressway (KMP Expressway) was borne by the Government of Delhi, Government of Uttar Pradesh and the Government of Haryana in the ratio of 50:25:25 respectively.
