In an endeavour to ease mobility in Delhi NCR, the construction of a six-lane bridge parallel to existing Okhla Barrage near Kalindi Kunj is about to finish. The Noida Authority officials said, “The bridge worth Rs 120 crores will be ready by November this year.”
After its opening, the bridge will provide solace to commuters traveling between Delhi, Noida, and Faridabad. Currently, Kalindi Kunj bridge acts as a link between Noida and South Delhi. With the growth of traffic on these roads as abundant, the narrow roads that pander to 1,00,000 vehicles on daily basis become inadequate to function.
SC Mishra Noida’s project engineer in charge said, “With 90 per cent of the project being completed, we are expecting the project to end by November this month.”
The bridge will encompass central verge and pedestrian tracks on both ways. The 574 metre long bridge is held by 15 pillars with a 41 metre distance between two pillars and will have two carriageways of three lanes each.
The new bridge connects the Okhla Bridge and Magenta Line metro route. For daily travelers from Noida to Delhi, the new bridge rests at 120 metre on the left of existing bridge and 40 metres from the metro route that links Kalindi Kunj and Botanical Garden.
