The Haryana government has approved three early-bird projects along the 1,483-km-long Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor (DMIC), of which 66 km will cut through the state.
These projects include a world-class exhibition-cum-convention centre (ECC) to be set up in Gurgaon on the lines of Delhi’s Pragati Maidan, a mass rapid transit system (MRTS) between Gurgaon-Manesar-Bawal and an integrated Logistics City in neighbouring Rewari.
Minister of commerce and industry Randeep Singh Surjewala said that the ECC would come up at 250 acres of land at the intersection of KMP (Kundli-Manesar-Palwal) Expressway and NH-8 near Pachgaon village.
“This will be a world class facility and even better than what Delhi’s Pragati Maidan offers,” he said.
The project outlay has been pegged at about R2,500 crore. The study for deciding the exact alignment of another early bird project, the proposed MRTS is being done by the DMIC consultants.
Besides these projects, the state government has also planned 12 theme cities all along the 135-km-long KMP Expressway. The KMP Expressway will facilitate the connectivity of Haryana with important sea ports located in southern, western and eastern parts of India.
