The NHAI has taken several steps in order to keep the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway safer for commuters. Therefore, one step is to apply a complete ban on two-wheelers and three-wheelers from using the expressway.
The decision is in line with some of the other expressways like Delhi-Meerut Expressway where motorcycles, scooters, and three-wheelers are barred from plying and attract a heavy fine. Though, NHAI hasn't revealed anything regarding the penalty for violating this norm, however, they made it clear that it will stretch remain out of bounds for all vehicles except cars and buses.
The Expressway has a maximum speed limit of 120 kmph for light motor vehicles including cars. Whereas, speed limit for bus and trucks will be 80 kmph. The travel time between Delhi and Mumbai will reduce and come down to just 12 hours and shorten the distance by 130 kmph.
