The expressway is a part of Golden Quadrilateral project, which itself is a part of ambitious National Highway Development Project (NHDP) and emphasizes improving road connectivity between four metropolitan cities of India, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata by developing 4–6 lane highways between them.

The much-delayed Rs.10 billion, 27.7 km expressway was thrown open on January 23, 2008. It has helped reduce the travel time of hundreds of thousands of commuters and international air passengers. ehicle users have to pay a toll for using the expressway, which is collected at three points, near the Indira Gandhi International Airport, the Delhi-Gurgaon Border and the 42nd Milestone. Since it began operation, it has also achieved notoriety for a large number of accidents involving pedestrians. There are only two overbridges along the entire stretch to cater to the communities living on either side of heavily populated areas through which the expressway runs. The toll plaza at the Delhi-Gurgaon border has also proved inadequate to handle the increasing traffic, leading to traffic jams during peak hours. Though the plaza is tag enabled, only 40 percent of the traffic that passes through avails of this facility.[1]
