GURUGRAM: The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) is about to finish six-laning of a stretch between Umang Bharadwaj Chowk and Basai, however commuters from town are unlikely to get aid earlier than the top of 2024 due to a 2.2km portion, whose redevelopment is but to begin.
The portion caught in limbo is a part of the 5.8km-long stretch between Hero Honda Chowk and Dwarka Expressway close to Sector 101, which was to be developed by GMDA and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to handle the problem of congestion. While the development of the three.6km stretch from Umang Bharadwaj Chowk to the Dwarka Expressway hyperlink close to Sector 101 started in 2018, the redevelopment of the two.2km portion between Hero Honda Chowk and Umang Bharadwaj Chowk is but to begin. This stretch might be developed by the NHAI’s Rewari mission implementation unit.
At the time of conceiving the mission, the two.2km stretch was to be redeveloped independently by the NHAI. But the highways authority has now clubbed the mission with one other — a 44km freeway from Pataudi to Rewari. Construction of the freeway was anticipated to begin in June this 12 months, however the delay in clearing encroachments by HSVP and different hurdles over land have delayed the mission.
Officials, nonetheless, are hoping to begin work by October. “The project has already been allotted to a contractor and a field survey is done. Once the encroachments are cleared and we get the land needed, we’ll begin construction. We are pushing hard to start the work by the first week of October,” mentioned a senior NHAI official.
Officials mentioned as soon as the land hurdles had been cleared, NHAI would take over 30 months to finish the mission. If the development manages to begin subsequent October, the stretch is not going to be prepared earlier than the top of 2024.
The whole mission will price round Rs 1,600 crore — together with the quantity required for land acquisition.
The Pataudi-Rewari freeway will begin from Sector 88A close to the Dwarka Expressway and finish close to the Pataudi street intersection. The stretch between Umang Bharadwaj Chowk and Dwarka Expressway will function the bypass.
GMDA officers mentioned they’d urged HSVP to expedite work on getting the land. “HSVP should be able to clear the encroachments in a few weeks. NHAI can begin their work on this stretch at least. Other issues pertaining to land will also be addressed in a time-bound manner,” mentioned a GMDA official.
Urban planners have steered that the stretch must be developed early to keep away from bottlenecks. They have warned that with high-speed autos coming from the Basai aspect by way of the six-lane street, which is about to be accomplished, and converging into under-construction lanes, Umang Bharadwaj Chowk will grow to be a significant choke level and an accident blackspot.
Residents have determined to request Union minister Nitin Gadkari to develop the stretch on a precedence foundation. “This stretch will link the Dwarka Expressway, so its significance cannot be denied. Even now, this stretch sees heavy vehicular movement, especially for the residents of new sectors. We want NHAI to complete the stretch first before laying hands on the highway project,” mentioned Prakhar Sahay, who has been coordinating with authorities officers to expedite the completion of the Dwarka Expressway.
