Flyovers & underpasses for a smooth ride to Fbd soon?


Gurgaon: The public works department (PWD) is exploring the possibility of constructing underpasses and flyovers on the Gurgaon-Faridabad road to make the commute easier for users. The road, which links two major districts of Haryana, is one of the busiest stretches in the city.
According to officials, three important junctions on the stretch — Ghata Chowk, Gwalpahari junction and Pali Chowk — are being looked upon as the areas where these underpasses or flyovers can be constructed to ease the flow of traffic.
“In order to ensure smooth flow of traffic, we are looking at the possibility of constructing either flyovers or underpasses, along with service roads, at three critical junctions on the Gurgaon-Faridabad road,” said a senior PWD official.The official said that, at present, they have floated a tender inviting bids for consultancy services for undertaking the feasibility assessment and preparing the detailed project report for the plan. “The agency to whom this tender will be allotted will get a time period of four months to firstly conduct a feasibility assessment and then, if the project is found to be executable, to prepare the DPR for the same. If the project is found to be feasible and things go as per plan, we expect to be able to commence work on the ground by next year, after completing all the paperwork and formalities.
“At present, we cannot say which junctions will see the construction of which structures. That will all become clear only after the DPR is prepared,” the official added.
According to the Comprehensive Mobility Management Plan of the GMDA, which was released in December 2020, the stretch is among the top 10 most dangerous roads in the city. With a high number of heavy vehicles using the road, it tends to be prone to mishaps.
If this project sees the light of day, the entire road stretch from NH-8 to Pali Chowkmay see a revamp in the coming years, with the GMDA also already working on a plan to improve SPR. While a plan to make the stretch between Ghata T-point and Vatika Chowk signal-free through the construction of flyovers has already been approved by the Authority, the GMDA is now working on further extending this plan to include all of SPR, right up to NH-8.
