The Noida authority is all set to start construction on its second elevated road, which will be along Master Plan-I road. The proposal for the elevated road that starts from Rajnigandha crossing and ends at Sector-56 junction has been finalised to decongest the choked stretches of the city.
The cost of the 3km construction is Rs 120 crore and it is expected that the work will start in the initial days of 2016.
As per the officials, Authority Chairperson and CEO Rama Raman is expected to approve the design proposal, before it is sent to IIT-Delhi for examination. Once the approvals are in place, tenders will be initiated for the project.
Mohammed Ishrat, in-charge of work circle-1, Noida Authority, said, “Work is expected to launch early in 2016. Currently, Noida’s first elevated road has been planned along Master Plan-II road between Vishwa Bharti School in Sector 28 and Shopprix Mall in Sector 61, and is already under construction.”
The 3km stretch will start at the T-Series crossing near Rajnigandha underpass ending near the Sector-22/57 crossing, also passing through Sectors- 12 and 22. With the new elevated road, a signal-free ride will be in the offing for traffic from Delhi via the DND flyway to Noida and also Ghaziabad via NH-24.
“The elevated road will be 14 metre wide with four lanes, and will have two exits only on the carriageway from Sector 4/19 towards Sector 22/57,” he said. “The two exits will be for traffic moving towards sectors 10/21 and 22/56, respectively,” Ishrat further added.
He also said, “Master Plan-I road is one of the busiest stretches in Noida. With the road in place, there will be a seamless flow of traffic to sectors 10, 12, 22, 23, 55, 56 and 57 as about six points on this stretch will become signal-free from Delhi via DND. Also, commuters moving to NH-24 and sectors 60, 61, 62 and Khoda Colony will find it easy to commute from this stretch towards Master Plan-II road.”
