6 stunning long drive roads in Delhi – NCRSmriti Saxena
Long drives have always been associated with romance or adventure. Here are some the stunning long drive roads that you can hit during non- traffic hours for an absolute bliss!
National Highway – NH8 : Stunning and spotless roads that connect Delhi and Gurgaon. This is a six to eight lane expressway which is a part of the Golden Quadrilateral.
The Ridge Road: Known as the green lungs for Delhi, it’s the world’s second most bird-rich capital city, after Kenya’s Nairobi. As its soothing by the day, its equally stunning by the night. This road is actually built amongst the northern extension of the ancient Aravalli Range, some 1500 million years old (compared to just 50 million for the Himalaya)
Aruna Asaf Ali Marg: This road is marked from traffic light of Ranjan Dhall Memorial Fortis Healthcare Hospital in Vasant Kunj and goes upto the Outer Ring Road covering Vasant Kunj(Sector-B), Kishangarh, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Sanjay Van, Qutab Institutional Area, IIT Delhi and Ber Sarai. This entire stretch is 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) and is definitely a smooth ride.
DND Flyway : The DND (Delhi Noida Direct) is an eight-laned expressway which connects Delhi to Noida. This road stretches about 9.2 kms in distance and is yet again a smooth drive.
India Gate: Roads around the beautifully lit India gate are surrounded with beautiful trees and lawns. If you ever hear it from a Delhiite who has grown here then you would know what special memories everyone has connected to this place. Someone people even drive in to see the beautiful sunrise or star gazing (after rains as our city is struggling with pollution).
Gurgaon Faridabad Road: Starting from Gurgaon’s Mehrauli Road in Sikanderpur and ending at the junction of Pali Bhakri Road in Faridabad, this is beautiful green belt road that has been constructed from the mid of the forest. The 25-km Gurgaon-Faridabad stretch is a four lanes road where you would usually find bike riders and groups even at an early morning or late night.
