The project spans 33 km costing Rs 3565 Crore under Bharatmala Pariyojana.

Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Shri Nitin Gadkari inspected the Faridabad Bypass Site and the construction of Package 1 & 2 of DND Sohna Highway on National Highway-148 NA including the spur of Delhi Mumbai Expressway. The project spans 33 km, with a cost of Rs 3565 Crore, developing under Bharatmala Pariyojana on Hybrid Annuity Mode.

This expansive infrastructure initiative seamlessly interlinks major highways—Direct Noida Delhi flyways, Delhi-Meerut, Kundli-Manesar -Palwal (KMP), NH-2 (Delhi-Agra), Delhi Mumbai Expressway, and Jewar airport connectivity highway.

Encompassing a 6-lane access-controlled highway with 3-lane service roads on both sides in the brownfield stretch, the urban project integrates 8 elevated sections (total length 12.034 km), 10 flyovers, 6 VUPs, 11 LVUPs, 13 Minor Bridges, 1 ROB, 1 RUB, 6 Bus Bays, and 102 box culverts.

Spanning over the Metro Line at 4 locations at a maximum height of about 27 m, it incorporates vertical gardening on piers for aesthetic, physiological, economical, and environmental advantages. A noise barrier along elevated sections mitigates noise pollution. At the same time, 10 hectares of barren land, once used for fly ash dumping, undergo plantation for a jungle safari project initiated by the Delhi government.
