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 1,583.4 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 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 the lowest densities of expressways in the world.[3]

Bharatmala Pariyojana will have all the new expressways developed as greenfield Eight-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, so all new expressways will be greenfield and mostly will be 8-lane to 12-lanes. Central government is the major investor in creating expressways. Only UP and Maharashtra are the states which are investing in expressway building by having dedicated expressway corporations.[4]

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