Shri Nitin Gadkari to lay the foundation stone for the project on 14th August

Shri Nitin Gadkari, the Minister for Road Transport & Highways and Shipping will lay the foundation stone on 14th of August, for NHAI’s project to decongest one of Delhi’s most congested corridors which leads to Indira Gandhi International Airport. The first bottleneck is junction of station road with NH8 in front of Metro station. As per NHAI plan, this junction is being made signal free. To achieve this, a flyover is proposed to be constructed
on right carriageway i.e. for traffic from Gurgaon to Delhi. At this junction, provision for U turn of traffic is also being provided. Further, two foot over bridges with escalators are also to be constructed for facilitating pedestrians. For segregating buses, proper bus bay is being provided. On station road a Vehicular Underpass is being constructed for facilitating smooth movement of Defence personnel.
The stretch from Dhaula Kuan Junction to Parade Road is proposed to be widened to ensure minimum four lanes on either side for through traffic. Near junctions additional structures are provided. In this stretch a Vehicular Underpass is also proposed to be constructed for connecting defence establishments on either side. It would also be connected with Manikshaw Centre.
At Parade Road Junction, the curve is being improved by road widening to allow smooth turning of traffic towards airport/ Gurgaon. At this junction, a Vehicular Underpass is being constructed for direct access to Parade Road. With this, the existing signals on these two junctions would be removed.
The project has already been sanctioned at a cost of Rs 260 crores. For undertaking this project, Ministry of Defence has agreed to transfer 13 acres of land to NHAI. For junction improvement, part of land is also required from police station. The bids for the project have been received and work is likely to start in October, 2017. The time period for completion of this work is 18 months.
