Recently the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) (EPCA) Authority have been asking government agencies, the identities of major roads in Delhi, that are connected to the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE) and the Western Peripheral Expressway (WPE).

Their reason for this demand is to bring down vehicular emission in Delhi. A recent study that was conducted by the Central Road Research Institute shows that the launch of the EPE brought down vehicular pollution by at least 7%.

The EPE and WPE together form an outer ring road around Delhi with a total length of 270km and these interchanges would help divert more vehicles, that aren’t destined for Delhi, to assist the two recently launched expressways.
