Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway also called as Western Peripheral expressway to the people of the State from village Sultanpur district Gurugram today. The expressway which is 136.65-km-long has been built at a cost of Rs. 6,434 crore including land acquired at a cost of Rs 2,788 crore and construction done at a cost of Rs. 3,646 crore. The Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway was rescheduled to be completed by February 19, 2019 but has been completed before the fixed date.
Various facilities have been provided on KMP expressway for the convenience of commuters including vetiver grossing which easily absorbs carbon particles. Fountains, historical and cultural monuments connected to Shrimad Bhagwad Gita and Yoga have been placed at various locations to improve the aesthetic look of the expressway.
Apart from this, near toll plaza a world class Art and Culture Gallery has been set up to depict the project development history through 3D Holographic models. For the convenience and safety of commuters, trauma centre and police patrolling vehicle have been deputed. And in every 14 km, one ambulance and one recovery van with a helpline number have been stationed for speedy response in case of accidents or emergencies. The Expressway has been developed as a green corridor. The KMP expressway has been constructed by 200 engineers and 2,500 labourers.
Thus construction of this expressway would provide high speed link of Northern Haryana with Southern Districts and provide uninterrupted high-speed link for traffic, especially Commercial traffic, from Haryana to neighbouring states. It would also decongest the road traffic from Delhi and thereby reduce pollution.
