Delhi is the capital of India. Every day thousands of people take a route to Delhi in order for their work or for fun. This time Commuters who will be driving from Delhi to Meerut will get the first full expressway experience beginning April 1. As the NHAI has announced that they will be opening the remaining two of the four phases of the Delhi Meerut Expressway which is commonly known as DME. This will be done in order to for the trial run in the beginning. However, this expressway has been opened in phases since May 2018. But it’s only from April 1, 2021, that Commuters can use the access-controlled expressway lanes to drive all the way. This route will be taken by the Commuters from Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi to Meerut. As the benefit of this expressway is that now the commuters will have to interrupt their route to service lanes.
The speed limit for vehicles
According to the source it was informed to the people who have four vehicles must keep the speed in 70kmph in Delhi while 100kmph in justification of Uttar Pradesh. It was also observed that several boulders were also spotted which were put up as road blockades at the Dame’s interchange with the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) at Dasna. And again the commuters were asked to take the EPE interchange at Dasna to continue their journey towards the EPE.
Benefits to Commuters with this interchange
This interchange is specifically designed to provide seamless connectivity between the two expressways at Dasna. The blockades will create some disrupted traffic movement.
The main reason to put up these blockades was to put up as toll collection. However, this toll collection is yet to start at the DME. According to the officials, it was also informed that the commuters without an entry at the DME toll booths would have faced issues while exiting the toll plazas at EPE. However, all the issues which are faced by the traveler during this route will be resolved by the officials as soon as possible. Also, 200 cameras were installed at phases 1,2, and 4, and 144 among which are working. This will keep track of the people who will not follow the traffic rules.
