Salient Features of Saharanpur Haridwar Expressway

This highway project is being constructed and develpmed under the ambitious program of India i.e. Bharatmala Pariyojana.

The overall length of Saharanpur Haridwar Expressway is approx 50 Kms .

The terrain along the stretch of the expressway is plain type and Majority of area is of agricultural type.

Right of Way (ROW) of the proposed Saharanpur Haridwar expressway is kept as 60 mts.

This spur expressway is designed in such a way that vehicles can move with a speed of 100 kmph on the highway.

In addition to this, in order to make the expressway fully access controlled, there is a provision for the construction of boundary walls on either sides of the expressway. With the help of these boundary walls, the wildlife animals, cattles, domestic animals etc cannot access the expressway which will result in the smooth and seamless movement of vehicles on this Saharanpur Haridwar Expressway.

The carriageway / Pavement of Saharanpur Haridwar Expressway will be constructed as flexible type and the design life of the flexible pavement will be 50 years.

Throughout its stretch, the expressway will cross overall 5 Highways including Delhi Dehradun Expressway, Muzaffarpur Saharanpur SH 59, 4 Rivers and 2 irrigation canals.
