The work on the proposed KMP Expressway was supposed to get completed by March 31, but the date has now been extended to mid of June.
Real estate developers’ association National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) has urged the Haryana government to speed up work for completion of the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway (KMP) and also plans to submit its request to the government.
The work on the proposed expressway was supposed to get completed by March 31, but the date has now been extended to mid of June.
When completed, the expressway will connect Gurugram to Sonepat and Kundli which are the emerging as residential hubs on NH-1.
“The completion will positively impact the development of Sonepat-Gurugram, stretch, which is now becoming a prime real estate destination in the region,” said Parveen Jain, president, NAREDCO, adding, “Very soon we will be sending our submission to the state government.”
KMP, also called the Western Peripheral Expressway, is around 136 km long and connects Kundli in Sonepat district, Manesar in Gurugram District with Palwal district. A number of housing, commercial and infrastructure projects have been planned along the route.
The entire construction has been delayed by over seven years for several reasons including the operational inefficiencies, controversies around land acquisition and various other litigations. The 53-km stretch between Manesar and Palwal was opened for public use on April 5 last year.
