• Huda to expedite completion of railway over bridge on Dwarka expressway

    Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is planning to complete the construction of railway-over-bridge (RoB) at the junction of sector 100 and 37D at Basai village before August. RoB is on Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) known as Dwarka expressway and completion of the bridge will help in early completion of the road. It will fill a crucial connectivity gap on the 18-km-long road.

    Estate officer of Huda Tarun Pawaria said additional chief secretary of department of town and country planning (DTCP) P Raghvendra Rao has directed to complete the RoB works before August. “We are planning to make a section of Dwarka expressway -from Kherki Daula to Palam Viharoperation by August 22, for this completion of RoB is necessary,” said Pawaria.

    Huda recently had a meeting with the railway to expedite the construction of RoB. “Section of RoB, passing over railway track, is being constructed by railway,” said a senior Huda official adding that that they are coordinating with railway to complete the work without any hassle.

    Last year in September railway had allotted work order to a company for construction of a portion of RoB, passing over railway track. Out of the 1200 metre long RoB railway will construct 128 metre area, passing over the railway track, rest will be constructed by Huda. For the construction of three-lane RoB it will cost around Rs 153 cr. “We are hopeful to complete the works on time,” said the Huda official.

    Along with this Huda is also going to connect the expressway with Pataudi and Basai roads and all nearby sectors by August. “It is likely to improve connectivity to at least 25 sectors on either side of the road,” said he.

    According to sources, roads in sectors 83-84, 82-85, 8186, 99-102, 102-102A, 120-103, 103 106, 109-112, 110A-111 are ready. After this stretch is opened, all these roads will be connected with the expressway. Most of the residential projects in these sectors are either complete or near completion.

    The six-lane Dwarka Expressway, which was conceived over eight years ago, starts from Dwarka in Delhi and ends at Kherki Daula. It was expected to divert 40% of the traffic on NH-8 between Gurgaon and Delhi, but till date, work on only 14.33 km of the road has been completed. The state government has fixed a new deadline of June 2017 for its completion. Matt Nieto Jersey
