The design of the Leh Expressway has been revised once more. With another design revision to the Leh Expressway project, the administration has chosen to deepen Nullah Leh rather than broaden it.
The Nullah Leh’s depth will be expanded by 11 feet, requiring only a minimal land acquisition for the project.
Previously, the government intended to purchase 1,200 Kanals of land for the Leh Expressway project; however, 605 Kanals would now be acquired, alleviating people’ concerns. Nullah Leh will be 16 kilometers long and 30 meters wide following the renovations. The project would cost Rs90 billion and will take 18 months to complete. The land acquisition survey is nearly complete.

The Nullah Leh will remain open during the monsoon season, with an estimated 0.1 million cubic meters of water flowing through it.
The Nullah Leh road will be 12 feet wide on both sides and will be surrounded by obstacles to prevent human and animal encroachment. Trunk sewers will be built beneath it to convey the city’s wastewater. The sewers will connect at the Soan River, from where wastewater will be routed to the Gorakhpur WASA treatment plant.
