National Expressway 2 or Eastern Peripheral Expressway is a proposed expressway in the National Capital Region which will bypass Delhi on the eastern side.[1] [2] The expressway will provide connectivity between Delhi and the towns of Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Greater Noida, Baghpat and Sonipat.[3] The project involves construction of a six-lane expressway with access control from Faridabad to Sonipat. The expressway will be 135 km long and will have two sections, the 56 km-long Faridabad-Ghaziabad section and the 49 km-long Ghaziabad-Sonipat section.[4] The completed expressway will help relieve traffic congestion in the Faridabad-Ghaziabad stretch.[5] Government of India approved funding for the expressway in August 2015.[6][7]
