The Delhi-Jaipur-Mumbai Expressway will be the longest high-speed corridor ever built in India. The more than 1350 km long road will shorten the travel time between Delhi and Mumbai from 24 hours to 12 hours. The people of Rajasthan will also benefit from the highway as it will pass through the state. The highway will cut the travel time between Delhi and Jaipur by half. It currently takes between 5 and 6 hours to reach Jaipur from Delhi. Travel time is reduced to 2.5-3 hours. However, the proposed Vande Bharat train between Delhi and Jaipur will take less time. The transit time between Delhi and Jaipur takes 1 hour and 45 minutes.
