Haryana Government Approves 5.5 km Elevated Corridor To Link Two Major Expressways In Gurugram 

Continuing its efforts to enhance road connectivity, the Haryana government has approved a 5.5 km-long signal-free elevated corridor. It will connect two major expressways, the newly constructed Dwarka Expressway and the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

The decision was taken at a GMDA board meeting held in Chandigarh on July 10, chaired by Chief Minister Naib Singh Saini, according to the Times of India.

The elevated alignment will connect the Central Peripheral Road (CPR) cloverleaf section to Vatika Chowk on Sohna Road on the Dwarka Expressway.

The Rs 750-crore project, which includes Rs 130 crore for land acquisition at Vatika Chowk, will take two years to complete after the work is awarded.

As per the plan, the main carriageway and service road of the elevated corridor will have six lanes on three sides. There will also be three-metre-wide footpaths, two-metre-wide cycle tracks, and green belts on each side.

We have received permission from the administration to extend the SPR from Vatika Chowk to CPR Cloverleaf on NH-8 for a signal-free elevated corridor. We will soon hire a consultant to prepare a detailed project report with designs and technical specifications, a senior GMDA official said.

The area from CPR Cloverleaf to Vatika Chowk currently has traffic signals at three intersections, which will be removed.

Currently, people traveling from Dwarka Expressway or Jaipur to Sohna or Faridabad have to pass through busy urban centers to reach the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway.

Upon completion, the new elevated section will help decongest arterial roads like Golf Course Road and Sohna Road, reducing bottlenecks and travel time.

The recently constructed 19-km-long Gurugram section of the Dwarka Expressway has successfully enhanced road connectivity in the city.

The entire expressway is 29 km long, with Delhi covering 10.1 km.

Meanwhile, the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway running from Sohna to Dausa (Jaipur) runs 246 km.

In total, the expressway is 1,390 km long and is operational with several stretches already opened.
