People travelling from Manesar to New Delhi received a major relief from traffic as one-side carriageway of the eight-lane Hero Honda Chowk flyover has opened in Gurgaon.

The 1.4km long carriageway was opened after a trial run of just two days. According to the officials of the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), more than three lakh people commute daily on this route. With the new flyover, the travelling time will reduce to a great extent providing easy flow of traffic as well.

The NHAI had awarded the eight-lane flyover project (four lanes on either side) to Valecha Engineering Ltd in January 2015 with expected cost of ?145 crore. Work began in February 2015. The deadline for the project was set as May 27, 2017, reported The Hindustan Times.

As of now, the whole project has not been completed. Opening of one-side carriageway the diversion road for traffic from Manesar to New Delhi has been barricaded to create space for accelerating construction work and completing the project by June.

“The flyover’s opening has been done to create a diversion. Traffic from Manesar to New Delhi will be diverted to that route. The official opening will only happen after the entire project is completed on June 30,” Ashok Sharma, project engineer of NHAI said in conversation with The Hindustan Times.

Delhi-Manesar route has heavy traffic from Jaipur, Pataudi, Manesar and other parts of northern Gurgaon.
