Eastern Peripheral Expressway (NH-2)



The Eastern Peripheral Expressway was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 27, 2018 in view of bringing down the pollution levels in the National Capital Region. It is the first smart and green 6-lane highway of India. The expressway, also known as KGP (Kundli-Ghaziabad-Palwal) expressway, is specifically designed to connect Kundli and Palwal in Haryana via Ghaziabad to reduce the congestion on the roads of the NCR region caused by the vehicles going towards Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

About Eastern Peripheral Expressway



The access-controlled expressway has been developed at a cost of around Rs 11,000 crore with multiple entries and exit points. The construction of the expressway was completed in 500 days as against the target of 910 days. The 135-km Eastern Peripheral Expressway is a part of the enormous Peripheral Expressway Project that consists of two highways-Eastern Peripheral Expressway and Western Peripheral Expressway. These 270-km long expressways will be surrounding Delhi like a ring road.

The route would by-pass Delhi on the eastern side and go through Haryana and Uttar Pradesh crossing the districts of Sonipat, Faridabad, Baghpat, Ghaziabad, and Gautam Budh Nagar. This long six-lane Eastern Expressway corridor will be connecting NH-1 at Kundli and NH-2 at Palwal. En route it will be crossing the Yamuna River and three other national highways. It will cross NH-58 at Murad Nagar, NH-24 at Dasna, and NH-91 at Beelakbarpur.
