A wildlife corridor is being built especially for this. This 12 kilometer corridor will pass through the forests. During this time, people will get to see many animals including lions and elephants in the forest during the journey itself. This special corridor is being built on Delhi-Dehradun Expressway.
The design of the Wildlife Corridor being built on the Delhi-Dehradun Expressway has been prepared jointly by NHAI and Wildlife Institute of India.

Expressway will pass through Rajaji National Park
National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) officials said that this wildlife corridor is being built in Uttarakhand. There will be free movement of animals in this corridor adjacent to Rajaji National Park.
The most special thing is that this project being built on Delhi-Dehradun Expressway will be Asia's largest wildlife corridor and its length will be more than 12 kilometers.
This wildlife corridor will have 6 lanes on a single pillar. To ensure minimum use of concrete in the forest, single pillar is being used in its construction. A total of 571 pillars are being built for this corridor and the distance between each pillar is 21 meters.
It is estimated that 20,000 to 30,000 vehicles will pass through this 6-lane corridor every day. This corridor will be connected from Delhi to Dehradun via Saharanpur. According to NHAI, around Rs 13,000 crore will be spent on the construction of this expressway.
