New Delhi, Apr 3 (UNI) Union Road Transport and Highways, Shipping, Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said an expressway will be constructed between Delhi and Mumbai due to which the distance between these two metros will be reduced by 106 km.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr Gadkari said this expressway is needed to connect the metros of Delhi and Mumbai.

He said the six-laned expressway will facilitate movement between the two metros and the distance of these cities by road will be reduced by nearly 106 kilometres.
