Expressways are the highest class of roads in the Indian road network. They are six or eight-lane controlled-access highways where entrance and exit is controlled by the use of slip roads. Currently, approximately 1,581.4 km of expressways are operational in India. The National Highways Development Project by Government of India aims to expand the highway network and plans to add an additional 18,637 km (11,580 mi) of expressways by the year 2022.[1] National Expressways Authority of India operating under the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways will be in-charge of the construction and maintenance of expressways.[2] India has one of lowest density of expressways in the world.[3]

Bharatmala Pariyojana will have all the new Expressways developed as greenfield 8-lane access-controlled expressways. Brownfield projects are costly and time consuming as land acquisition will drag on for years and market value to be paid would have been high because of real estate development.

India has about 1,581.4 km (982.6 mi) of expressways. Pictured is a section of the Delhi Gurgaon Expressway
