Delhi to Mumbai in 12 hours, here are the route details of the new expressway

The Delhi-Vadodara-Mumbai Expressway has been built up to the Dausa region of Rajasthan, which is only 65 km from Jaipur. When completed, this route will connect Delhi to Jaipur and other cities of the state. The highway will reduce the distance and travel time between Jaipur and the national capital by more than three hours. Generally it takes around 5 hours to travel from Jaipur to Delhi.
