UP asks Delhi to pay Rs 100 cr to elevate Ganga expressway

Quote:
Cash-strapped Delhi Government has been asked to pay Rs 100 crore by Uttar Pradesh to make the Upper Ganga expressway elevated on a stretch near Bhagirathi through which major pipelines supplying water to the national capital pass.

The proposed 170 km long Upper Ganga Canal Expressway will connect Greater Noida with Haridwar.

The UP government told Delhi that the expressway will have to be made elevated to ensure that water supply to Sonia Vihar Treatment Plant in the national capital does not get affected.

"The Uttar Pradesh Government told us to pay Rs 100 crore to make a portion of the Expressway elevated," Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta said.

The argument of the UP government for seeking the amount is that the portion of the expressway will have to be elevated only to ensure that water supply to Delhi is not interrupted and so Delhi will have to pay the additional expenses.

Asked whether Delhi Government was ready to pay the amount, Mehta said the government was going through a difficult financial position because of the massive spending it has incurred in developing various infrastructure as part of preparation for the Commonwealth Games.

"We hope to settle the issue through dialogue," Mehta said avoiding a direct reply.

The irrigation department of the Uttar Pradesh government has already acquired land for the 170 km long expressway.

An agreement was signed earlier this year between the UP Expressway Industrial Development Authority and consultant ILFS Infrastructure Development Corporation for implementation of the project.
The first line should read that the cash strapped Delhi government has been asked by an absolute pauper UP government.....

Full KMP Expressway not before May, but first stretch in November: Hooda


Quote:
Gurgaon : Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has announced that a part of the 135.65-km Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway will be opened this November.
“The first segment of the four-lane expressway between Manesar (NH-8) and Palwal (NH-2) will be opened in the first week of November,” Hooda said. On the expressway, toll will be levied according to the distance travelled, also called partial tolling.

The Chief Minister said the entire length of the expressway, originally scheduled to open this July, will not become functional before April-May next year. The July 2009 deadline was extended to December 31, 2010, as the concessionaire, DSC Limited, lost around 15 months in litigation with a project partner.

In April, after a review visit, Hooda had directed officials to expedite work.

The expressway, once complete, will be the largest Build Operate Transfer (BOT) project in the country and will provide a high-speed link between Northern Haryana and its southern districts like Sonepat, Jhajjar, Gurgaon and Faridabad.

Being implemented under the authority of the Haryana State Industrial Development Corporation Ltd (HSIIDC), one of the main aims of the expressway is to decongest the National Capital Region by diverting heavy polluting vehicles out of Delhi.

“As soon as the expressway is open, Delhi will divert all heavy vehicle and truck traffic onto it. This is likely to bring down pollution levels within the city,” said Delhi Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta.

According to the concessionaire, 60 per cent of the work was finished by April and the project is now expected to be complete by the end of this year. “The changes in design of railway overbridges (ROBs) and grade separators caused the delay, among other issues,” KMP Expressway chairman H S Kohli reasoned.

HSIIDC officials, however, are not satisfied with the work. “The expressway runs through agricultural land for most part with hardly any obstructions, except for a few clearances needed from third parties like the Railways.

But the manner in which the work is progressing, it seems highly unlikely that it can be completed in another eight months.

“Work on National Highway Authority of India’s Eastern Peripheral Expressway is yet to pick up pace and this has become a convenient excuse for the concessionaire,” said an HSIIDC official, who did not want to be named.

“We will complete road work on the expressway by December 31 this year. Work on grade separators, however, might take longer as certain section of the land is yet to be handed over to us after a stay order by court.

“In case of ROBs, there was delay in getting approval for three and we are still awaiting approval for one ROB. We are putting our best effort and working closely with authorities concerned to complete the project at the earliest,” a DSC spokesperson told Newsline.

The total cost of the project has been estimated at Rs 1,915 crore; of this, Rs 1,200 crore had already been spent till the end of April this year.

The state government has also notified a 2-km area around the entire length of the expressway to prevent haphazard development in the zone.

The stretches
23.5 Km
Sonepat-Kundli

27 Km
Kundli-Jhajjar

24.5 Km
Jhajjar-manesar

28 Km
manesar-mewat

21.65 Km
mewat-palwal

Toll
The project is planned on a first-of-its kind closed-loop tolling system, wherein the user pays toll as per the distance covered on the expressway. The toll rates:
Rs 0.75 per km for car, passenger van or jeep
Rs 1.25 per km for light commercial vehicle
Rs 2.60 per km for truck/bus
Rs 4.15 per km for multi-axle vehicle

120 Kmph
Speed limit

2,200 m
Average radius of curves keeping high-speed vehicular traffic in mind

3 m to 9 m
Height of embankment

22 m
Highest point, in the Aravalli Hills stretch at Ghuspaiti village in Mewat district

Traffic snarls on NH1, NH2 to end by August

Quote:
By August-end, commuters can expect relief from traffic snarls on NH-1 and NH-2 while entering Delhi or going out of the city. One carriageway of the Mukarba Chowk-Sanghu border stretch on NH-1 will be opened by July-end and another carriageway of Badarpur flyover will be operational by August.

At a meeting chaired by Union road transport and highways minister Kamal Nath on Friday the NHAI officials gave a commitment to Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit that all road widening, improvement and beautification works being carried out by the authority would be completed by September-end.

"Dikshit wanted all projects on national highways to be completed by mid-September. Nath told her the entire 13-km stretch of NH-1 which is being widened and both carriageways of the Badarpur flyover will be completed by September-end," said a ministry official.

Thumbs up Northern peripheral road tenders soon

Gurgaon:
With the state sanctioning Rs 70 crore and the Detailed Project Report (DPR) ready, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has set the ball rolling for the 18.5-km Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), also called the Dwarka Expressway.


“The DPR is ready and we will soon begin the tendering process. If all goes as per plan, work on the stretch should begin in the next four months,” HUDA superintending engineer Pankaj Kumra told Newsline. Due to litigation, work can begin on only a 12.5-km stretch connecting Dwarka and National Highway 8.


“HUDA has put land acquisition for the road on priority so that people who have booked properties can be assured proper connectivity,” said Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner Rajender Kataria.



The northern and southern peripheral roads are integral to the Gurgaon-Manesar Masterplan 2025. The roads are expected to take away up to 40 per cent of traffic from the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway

Haryana allots Rs 132-crore for Northern Peripheral oad Expressway that was caught in litigations for three yearsThe proposed 150etre wide and 18-km-long orthern Peripheral Road PR) Expressway is finally set take off. The expressway was uck in a legal wrangle between e government and the people hose houses needed to be emolished to construct it.

The Haryana government as formally approved a budgof Rs 132 crore for the projt that was envisaged along ith the 16-km-long Southern eripheral Road (SPR) in the aster Plan 2021 notified three ars ago in 2007.

The NPR is the widest pressway of the country.

The Haryana Urban evelopment Authority UDA) officials said since 14 km of the total NPR stretch was igation-free, the work on it ould start first at a budget of s 67 crore.

"After having received a een signal on the project for budget of Rs 132 crore, we ould soon float tenders for the 14-km patch," said a senior HUDA official.

He said the work on the rest 4-km stretch will start later when the litigation on it and the disputes with the property owns was resolved.
The Haryana government as already released hundreds residential and commercial rojects to private developers.has also taken about Rs 4,000 crore of external development harges from them for providg master infrastructure such roads, sewerage and drainage stem for the new projects.

It was out of acute pressure om the private developers that e Haryana government had tempted to get rid off the NPR oject and had approached the ational Highway Authority of dia (NHAI) urging it to take it over. However, the NHAI too had turned down the request.
According to the HUDA officials, the remaining 4-km patch had about 700 metres running through an SEZ, 1,175 metres in properties of Palam Vihar, 300 metres in village Kherki Daula and 1,000 metres in proposed railway over bridge.
The HUDA officials said the state government had offered plots to the property owners whose structures and land came under the alignment of the NPR in sector 45 under Ashiana Scheme and the disputes will soon be over paving way for the work to start on the rest of the stretch of NPR.

WORK BEGINS ON SPR Finally part of the work of construction of 90-metre wide Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) has taken off.

The road connects National Highway-8 with Faridabad Road and further MG Road.

Cutting of Aravali Hills and the earth work has started on the 2.1-km stretch between Sector 55/56 and Faridabad Road. It will be completed within four months.

According to HUDA officials has awarded the project costing Rs. 7.5 crore to a private company.

After its completion, the residents of DLF City (Phase -V), Sushant Lok-II and III, Sector 55/56/57 and other HUDA sectors of the area will get third direct connectivity with Faridabad Road. Currently there are two connecting roads through Sector 42 and 53.
The SPR and NPR together would form a ring around Gurgaon and connect Palam Vihar and MG Road through NH-8 near village Kherki Daula.

So far the town and country planning department has issued close to hundred licences to private sector developers for setting up residential and commercial projects along the expressways.

Since then, the developers have been pressuring the Haryana government to start the projects.

Ajit Singh, the owner of the company that received the project, said the work would have started had the permission to cut the Aravali Hills come in time from the Union Environment Ministry. ON RIGHT TRACK 150-metre-w wide and 18-km long are the dimensions of the Northern Peripheral Road Rs 132 crore is the budget approved for the NPR project by the Haryana government The project was envisaged with the Southern Peripheral Road in Master Plan 2021 notified in 2007 . 90-metre is the SPR's width SPR connects NH-8 and with Faridabad Road and MG Road SPR and NPR will form a ring around Gurgaon. They will link Palam Vihar and MG Road via NH-8 near

Work starts on Gurgaon-Faridabad highway

Quote:
By May 2011, people will be able to zoom past on the four lane 24.3 kms Gurgaon-Faridabad road. The work on the widening of the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road from the existing two lanes to 4 lanes has begun.

To be a tolled road, for which about 6,800 trees along the 12 km Gurgaon-Faridabad Road have been chopped off in the Faridabad stretch, 2,600 more trees on the Gurgaon side are to be felled by the Haryana Forest Development Corporation for the work from Gurgaon side to begin.



Reliance Infrastructure had bagged this BOT (Build, Operate and Transfer) project of four laning of the highway along with the widening and strengthening of Ballabhgarh-Sohna road with concession period 17 years at Rs 780 crore. It was the first of its kind road project on BOT basis undertaken by the Public Works (Building and Roads) Department of the Haryana government.

For improvement or upgradation, both bituminous and concrete pavements, would be provided. In addition, some links of the roads like MCF road, crusher zone road and Pali Bakhri road will be improved as a part of scope of work. The total length of roads covered under the project would be 66 km.

Even though it would be a toll road, certain categories of vehicles would be exempted from payment of toll. These vehicles include two wheelers, tractor trolley carrying agricultural produce, defence vehicles, ambulances and funeral vans, police vehicles, fire-fighting vehicles, etc.


This is the present status of the road:

Please clarify nd discuss according to ur understanding
