As per details with News18, the proposed greenfield connectivity from the Noida International Airport will act as a spur to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway as it will not only add significant traffic to the proposed interstate but will also ease the traffic congestion in Delhi-NCR. The 30-km new road will join the airport with the expressway at village Chandawali near Ballabgarh in Haryana. The NHAI has started land acquisition for this new road, a majority of which will fall in Haryana.

The airport will also be connected to the Eastern Peripheral Expressway with an interchange being constructed near the airport where the Yamuna Expressway criss-crosses the Eastern Peripheral Expressway. This interchange will enable people from Kundli, Panipat and Meerut to access the airport through the Eastern Peripheral Expressway, which further connects into the operational Delhi-Meerut Expressway.
