Parallel bridge across Yamuna at Kalindi Kunj facing more delay; only 51% complete

The Times of India
NOIDA: The six-lane Rs 119 crore parallel bridge across the Yamuna near Kalindi Kunj continues to witness slow progress towards completion. The bridge was to be readied by August 2016, however with the next target date of March 2017 also likely to be surpassed, the contractor is facing cancellation of contract by Noida Authority in the same month. Nearly two weeks ago Rama Raman, Uttar Pradesh principal secretary, Industries and chairperson, Noida Authority had directed officials to issue a show cause notice to the contractor constructing the bridge parallel following a report on the slow progress of the project.

According to officials, work on the bridge has been facing endless delays. "Work on the facility has been stalled because of monsoon first and the latest being National Green Tribunal (NGT) orders post Diwali, when the entire NCR was facing severe air pollution levels and the green court had ordered all construction be stopped," said S.C Mishra, Noida's Project Engineer in-charge of the project. "However, work has resumed now. We will conduct a review of the progress of the project on January 31," he said. "The contract for the project ends in March 2017, but the project is only 51% complete and is far from complete," the official told TOI but refrained from announcing a fresh date of completion of project.

"In the first week of February, we will issue a notice to the contractor demanding answers for the slow progress and missed deadlines. A final notice will be issued in first week of March," he said. "If we do not receive a satisfactory reply we will cancel their contract," he added saying that if the contract of the existing company is cancelled, the Authority will have to invite fresh tenders to appoint other company to complete the under-construction project. "This could mean further delay in completion," Mishra rued.

The parallel bridge to the existing Okhla Barrage, is expected to provide respite to scores of commuters travelling between Delhi, Noida and Faridabad when it is ready. Currently, the existing Kalindi Kunj Bridge is the only link between Noida and south Delhi. Traffic on this route has grown manifold and the narrow road, which caters to nearly 1.5 lakh vehicles daily is no longer sufficient.

The under-construction 574m long bridge is to be supported on fifteen pillars with a 41 meter distance between two pillars and will have two carriageways of three lanes each. It will also have a central verge and pedestrian pathways on each side. A cycle track is also on the cards for the 17.3 meter-wide bridge. Officials said it is located about 120 meters (while going from Noida to Delhi side on the left) of the existing Okhla bridge. The new bridge is at a distance of about 40 meters from the Metro track -between Kalindi Kunj and Botanic Garden Metro stations—which is currently undergoing trials. It will also have approach roads from both the Delhi and Noida sides.

New BRT routes in offing, Delhi govt to identify road stretches


NEW DELHI: The Delhi government will identify new road stretches for setting up BRT corridors, months after the only such carriageway built by the Sheila Dikshit government was dismantled due to its "poor design".
The Transport Department of the city government has proposed to conduct a thorough study to find out stretches where Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors are feasible.

The Arvind Kejriwal government had dismantled the Moolchand-Ambedkar Nagar BRT corridor, a Rs 180-crore traffic project built in 2008, saying it was built without a proper planning, but had accepted the concept of such corridors was not bad.

During Assembly elections in 2015, the Aam Aadmi Party had promised to dismantle the BRT corridor as "it was causing traffic snarls" on the stretch.
"As per the plan, the transport department will identify such road stretches where new BRT corridors can come up.

"New BRT corridors will be built based only on a proper planning so that such structures do not cause traffic snarls later as we had to see in the case of the previous BRT corridor," a senior government official said.
The official said that after the the proposal is cleared by the transport commissioner, it will be sent for the approval of higher government authorities.
In January last year, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had started the process of dismantling the BRT corridor by striking a hammer and taken a swipe at previous Dikshit government for its "copy-paste" work.

"Congress leaders might have gone abroad and copied the BRT and pasted it in Delhi without proper planning which was a dangerous work. Even cheating requires application of mind...
"The concept of BRT is not bad. In several countries, BRT corridors are there and there is also a dedicated lane for buses. But, there is a proper system before introducing such project," Sisodia had said.

Gurgaon road updates from last week

Medanta underpass to open by June 30

The Times of India
GURGAON: Traffic snarls at Rajiv Chowk may soon become a thing of the past, with NHAI planning to open the right U-turn underpass near the roundabout to traffic by June 30. The flyover at Maharana Pratap Chowk,is also likely to become operational in July.

Both the U-turn and the flyover are part of the ongoing three underpasses project on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. Once operational, the 708m two-lane U-turn underpass that starts from Medanta-The Medicity hospital in Sector 38 and ends just 150m ahead of Rajiv Chowk, will offer a signal-free ride to the Jaipur-Delhi side of the highway.

At present, vehicles coming from Choudhary Bakhtawar Singh Road, Sectors 39, 40, 38, 42, etc, have to travel all the way to Rajiv Chowk, take a U-turn from Sohna road to return to the junction, and then take a right towards Delhi. The right U-turn will ensure vehicles get direct link to the other side of the highway.

Th underpass is expected to reduce travel time as well as traffic snarls on the stretch. The current 20-30 minutes commute between Choudhary Bakhtawar Singh Road and Jaipur-Delhi side of NH-8 will be reduced to just 5-10 minutes. Moreover, traffic from Delhi-Jaipur lane towards Rajiv Chowk is also expected to reduce by 50%. Similarly, the flyover passing over Maharana Pratap Chowk, will cut down traffic on Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road in Sector 14.

The original deadline for the entire project is May 2019. So far, only 30% of the construction work of the entire project, which includes the right U-turn, flyover and the three underpasses at Iffco Chowk, Signature Tower and Rajiv Chowk, has been completed.

"NHAI will make the flyovers and underpasses accessible for commute as and when they are ready. The project will ease congestion on roads ," said a senior NHAI official.

CM takes stock of roads, infra projects in Gurgaon, asks to speed up work

Hindustan Times
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar went on a 3- hour long inspection drive to take stock of Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, NPR, also called Northern Peripheral Road, SPR, Golf Course Road and other ongoing infrastructure projects in Gurgaon on Saturday. Khattar, during his visit , asked the civic agencies to expedite works and take necessary steps to improve sanitation and cleanliness in the city.

The CM started his inspection at 8.30 am from the Sirhaul border itself and stopped at the now defunct plaza near Ambience mall to ask officials what they were planning to do to end congestion. He asked the NHAI (National Highways Authority of India), Huda (Haryana urban development authority) and PWD officials to ensure that clover-leaf U-turn becomes a reality soon, so that commuters are able to take a U-turn in front of Ambience mall instead of going to Rajokri in Delhi.

The Huda officials briefed the chief minister that they were working out a formula to get back 8 acres of land from Hindustan Insecticides Limited, a PSU, through lease or FSI as this land was required for the project.

Khattar inspected the new Golf Course Expressway Road up to the SPR and told officials that it would be inaugurated soon. He also stopped at Sohna Road and inspected the area.

From SPR, the chief minister visited the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway and also stopped over at the Hero Honda Chowk after taking a U-turn from Kherki Daula. He asked officials about the steps they were taking to resolve waterlogging and traffic issues. The chief minister also directed his officials to undertake necessary measures to the extent of making the key intersection free from waterlogging and traffic problems.

Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav apprised the chief minister about the proposed expansion of the Khandsa drain and also the Badshahpur drain that would help in resolving the twin issues.

The chief minister also asked the NHAI to expedite work on the underpass projects at Rajiv Chowk, Iffco Chowk and Signtaure Tower crossing within a year, as these projects are critical to easing congestion.

While passing over the Basai road over bridge, the chief minister issued directions that the flyover should be made a four-lane given the high traffic volume in the area.

While the chief minister expressed satisfaction with the overall construction of roads and related infrastructure, he did his reservations about the cleanliness and sanitation woes of the city.

Khattar asked officials to ensure proper upkeep of the city, while directing the concerned officers to get green belts on Sohna Road freed from encroachments. MCG commissioner V Umashankar told the chief minister that the corporation has already started a crackdown on encroachment drive on the road.

At the Atul Kataria chowk, the chief minister got off his vehicle and enquired about the status of the 900-metre ammunition depot land, which is also mired in an encroachment tangle. Hardeep Singh, deputy commissioner, Gurgaon apprised him about the measures being taken for the resolution of the complex issue and the legal issues related to it.

Road widening work leads to frequent traffic jams near Udyog Vihar in Gurgaon

Hindustan Times
Hundreds of commuters are facing tough time commuting on the sector 17/18 dividing road, adjacent to Udyog Vihar due to frequent jams. Commuters said missing dividers were leading to haphazard traffic flow on the stretch.

The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram ( MCG) is expanding the 2.2km road at a cost of Rs 5.9 crore. The work on the project started in March last year and is scheduled to be completed by this June.

According to the MCG officials, upgrading the dividing road will resolve congestion issues on this busy stretch connecting Iffco Chowk and Old Delhi-Gurgaon Road.

The stretch will be upgraded to a four-lane road with a central verge and streetlights. Footpaths and other street infrastructure will also be built to ensure smooth traffic.

The commuters and residents of Sector 17B, Iffco Colony, Palam Vihar, Sector 5 and Udyog Vihar are the most hit as the road connects to NH-8 near Iffco Chowk.

“Every day, it takes more than 40 minutes for a commuter to cross the stretch as the construction work in progressing at a slow pace. There is no provision to control the traffic flow on the stretch,” said Rohit Sirohi of Palam Vihar.

During peak hours, almost 15,000 passenger car units (PCUs) cross this junction and the bumper-to-bumper traffic means that pedestrians and cyclists do not get any share of the road space.

“When motorists try to overtake on the single-lane road, traffic comes to standstill for hours. The traffic movement is slow and the traffic police has to deploy their personnel there to ensure the route is cleared,” said Vivek Joshi of Sector 3.

A non-functional bus stand that was developed by the MCG towards the Jaipur side of the road compounds the problems at Iffco Chowk. The traffic police had asked the civic body to maintain it several times but in vain. The result is that people wait for buses on the service lane that is already encroached upon by vendors.

The MCG officials said the traffic congestion would continue until June-end by which time the road widening work will be complete.

Dharamvir Malik, executive engineer, MCG, said, “The work is in progress and will be completed by June -end. We are trying to ensure the work is done at night when the traffic volume is low.”

Sohna road to become encroachment-free

The Times of India
GURGAON: Sohna road, which has become a nightmare for motorists and pedestrians, will soon be freed of encroachments and illegal parking.

The city authorities have decided to launch an anti-encroachment drive on April 27 to rid Sohna road of squatters and street-parking. The drive will be similar to the ongoing one on MG Road.

"We have already started an anti encroachment drive on MG Road since March 23. Every day we tow away vehicles that are parked on the roadside illegally. There are also several illegal shops and establishments that reduce the width of the road. We have now decided to launch a similar drive on Sohna road as well. MCG, Huda, DTCP and personnel from the traffic police department will come together to make the drive a success," said an MCG official.

During his visit to the city last Saturday, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had chided the city authorities for failing to prevent illegal parking and stop squatters from eating into the available road space.

"The chief minister asked us to make sure that none of the main roads in the city is encroached. He also expressed his displeasure over the way vehicles are currently parked illegally on the roads. We had informed him that we have already started an anti-encroachment drive on MG Road and that we will soon take up other roads as well," the official said.

Second Cyber City underpass opens today

The Times of India
GURUGRAM: In what will benefit thousands of commuters in the Cyber City area, a U-turn underpass near DLF Phase-II Rapid Metro station on Golf Course Road is to be thrown open to traffic on Tuesday.

Once operational, motorists will no longer have to go towards Sikanderpur to take a U-turn towards Shankar Chowk to hit the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway.

The 394-metre, two-lane underpass starts from near DLF Phase-II Rapid Metro station. During peak hours, there is massive traffic jam near the Metro station right up to the Sikanderpur flyover, leading to slow-moving traffic on Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road, Delhi-Gurgaon expressway and the internal sector roads.

And, this underpass is expected to ease congestion in the area to a large extent and benefit office-goers and residents in the Cyber City area.

The first U-turn underpass near 9B and Deutsche Bank buildings in the Cyber City area is already open to public, which takes Cyber City traffic back towards Shankar Chowk. And, with the opening of this second U-turn underpass, six out of the total seven underpasses on the 16-lane DLF-Huda expressway — touted to be the country's first high-speed corridor within a city — will be operational.

When contacted, a Huda official, associated with the project, confirmed to TOI, "The second U-turn underpass is ready and it will be open for traffic trial on Tuesday. The remaining work of the project will be completed within the deadline."

DLF, however, refused to comment, saying they will give their version only after the opening of the underpass.

The revamp of Golf Course Road is now almost complete with the opening of this underpass. The only remaining underpass that is yet to be opened is the bi-directional underpass at Genpact crossing.

Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had on Saturday inspected all the underpasses on the expressway.

The development comes as a major relief to people working in the Cyber City area. "After the opening of the first U-turn underpass, we were eagerly waiting for the opening of the second U-turn underpass to go towards Shankar Chowk without any hassle," said Sumit Mishra, an office goer.

Gurugram: Southern Peripheral Road to be completed by mid-May

The Times of India
GURUGRAM: The Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), connecting Golf Course Road with NH-8, is likely to open by mid-May as Huda officials claim that the work on the stretch is on the fast track.

The 16km-long SPR, which originates from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road near Ghata and meets NH-8 near Kherki Daula, was held up over rehabilitation of 14 oustees at Rambir Ki Dhani, obstructing the road for an 800-metre stretch. Huda rehabilitated the SPR oustees in Sector 49 in the first week of March.

On Saturday, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had inspected the stretch during his inspection of the infrastructure projects of the city.

"We have started the construction work on the remaining portion of the SPR at Rambir Ki Dhani and expect to complete it within a month," Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav told TOI. The completion of SPR will improve connectivity of Golf Course Road, Faridabad Road, Sohna Road and nearby areas with NH-8 and will reduce the traffic load on Delhi-Gurgaon expressway.

Huda had conducted a draw of lots for allotting alternative plots to the oustees of SPR project in August 2016.

PWD plans elevated corridor to ease traffic on ring roads

13-Km Lane To Link Wazirabad & DND Flyway

The public works department is working on a proposal to construct an elevated corridor between Signature Bridge near Wazirabad and DND Flyway in a bid to decongest Ring Road and Outer Ring Road.

The corridor, likely to be 12-13km long, will be constructed by the PWD, which comes under the Delhi government, along the Yamuna floodplain in a phased manner.Lieutenant governor Anil Baijal's office is reportedly monitoring the project. The corridor is being planned as the traffic volume will increase manifold on the two ring roads near Kashmiri Gate and Sarai Kale Khan once the construction of Signature Bridge and NH-24 expansion are completed. “We will also explore the possibility of connecting the elevated corridor with various bridges on the Yamuna,“ a PWD official said.

According to the initial plan, the elevated road will start from Signature Bridge and be merged with Salimgarh bypass (Ring Road bypass). The corridor will run parallel to the existing Outer Ring Road near Majnu Ka Tila and Ring Road near Sarai Kale Khan. The second part of the corridor will link the end of the Salimgarh bypass near ITO to the DND Flyway .

In the first phase, the PWD aims to decongest the area between Signature Bridge right up to the Hanuman temple at Yamuna Bazaar. The stretch is extremely congested, T especially during peak hours. Once the Signature Bridge is open to the public, the situation is likely to worsen,“ said a senior official.

The proposal is in the initial stages and PWD plans to get a preliminary feasibility study , including a survey using drones, to finalise the project. “We will also explore the possibility of connecting the elevated corridor with various bridges on the river Yamuna,“ said a PWD official.

The Delhi Traffic Police has been expressing concerns about increase in traffic volume in the area around ISBT Kashmiri gate. PWD already had planned to construct two flyovers at Majnu Ka Tila and Metcalfe house. “The two projects have been approved by UTTIPEC. We are waiting for financial approval for the two projects,“ said an official.

But if an elevated corridor is constructed between Signature Bridge and Salimgarh bypass, then ITO-bound traffic can avoid ISBT Kashmiri Gate.

In the second phase, the plan is to start the elevated corridor from the end of the Salimgargh bypass till DND flyway . PWD officials say that the second phase can help in addressing the traffic problem near Sarai Kale Khan, which is already congested. The traffic situation is likely to worsen once the NH-24 expansion work is over.The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has already raised the issue with PWD.“The existing Ring Road near Sarai Kale Khan can't take the increase in traffic load. We are exploring all possibilities to ease congestion on this stretch,“ said a PWD official.

According to a PWD official, “We will have a clear idea about the feasibility of the project once the preliminary feasibility study is done.The elevated corridor will ease traffic situation on the stretch to a large extent.“

Good idea. And there was a plan to build an elevated road from DND south to Badarpur, which can be incorporated with this idea. It could even be extended all the way to Ballabhgarh, so that there is a complete bypass of/parallel road to ORR, IRR and Mathura Road along this entire stretch.

Also, at the northern terminal of this road, there was an alternate road planned from Wazirabad to the Delhi border at Kundli-Narela, which would take the load off the current stretch from Wazirabad to Mukarba Chowk, and Mukarba Chowk to Kundli-Narela border. That can also be incorporated, creating a new road from border to border (Kundli-Narela to Badarpur).

You may be surprised to see what's under these flyovers

Flyovers in south Delhi will soon have a fresh look to them. After South Extension and Lajpat Nagar, South Delhi Municipal Corporation has decided to revamp and beautify other flyovers coming under its jurisdiction. The civic body has set a September deadline for the task.
The plan includes landscaped park with sculptures, graffiti and green patches -these will replace all kinds of garbage and malba strewn over the empty space. “This initiative is apart of the project initiated by the LG to transform urban spaces. Landscaping will be done in the space below 12 of these flyovers -handed over to the corporation by PWD,“ said Puneet Kumar Goel, SDMC commissioner.

A 5x300m stretch at Lajpat Nagar was beautified recently and the task was completed within two weeks, an official claimed. “Malba was removed to develop gardens. Grills were repaired and the flyover painted. Pathways were developed for walkers and arrangements made for colourful lighting -all this in 15 days,“ the official said.

According to SDMC, the deadline for finishing the landscaping work under six flyovers in central zone -Ashram, Kalkaji, Nehru Place, Sarai Kale Khan, Defence Colony and Andrews Ganj -has been set for September 15. Work on others (see graphic) will compeletd by September 30, Goel said.

Globally , there are glittering examples of how cities have utilised the space below flyovers. However, Delhi is notorious for managing them poorly .But there are signs of a turnaround. Taking a cue from the Matunga project in Mumbai -where residents came together to build a garden below the flyover -SDMC recently turned the underbelly of Andrews Ganj flyover into a “Yog Mudra Sthal“, erecting eight stone sta tues performing different asanas on top of raised mural pedestals.

A senior SDMC official, who was part of the team that carried out the project, said: “The LG had told us to remove debris and beautify the place.We conducted an experiment under the Moolchand flyover by planting cacti. We observed that this discouraged people from dumping garbage there.Unlike Matunga, which doesn't have sculptures, we would use public space to display our cultural heritage.“

Work under the Nehru Place flyover has already started and senior officials said the green area would be developed with the Make-in-India theme.

“We are giving the flyovers a theme-based makeover. For Nehru Place flyover, we are going with the Make-In-India theme. Similarly , other flyovers will have an animal theme, or depict various facets of Indian culture,“ said the official.

MCG to build underpass and flyover at Atul Kataria Chowk

The Times of India
As per plan, the flyover is proposed on the road from Dundahera border to Bus Stand on Old Delhi-Gurgaon roadAs per plan, the flyover is proposed on the road from Dundahera border to Bus Stand on Old Delhi-Gurgaon road
GURGAON: MCG is going to build a flyover and underpass at Atul Kataria Chowk, to ease traffic congestion at one of the busiest junctions on Old Delhi-Gurgaon road. The design for the project is likely to be finalised by November, after which, it will be forwarded for final approval and tendering.

MCG was earlier considering building either a flyover or an underpass at the crossing, but has now decided to build both. It has engaged a consultant to prepare a detailed project report (DPR). A source said the consultant had submitted a draft DPR a few days back, which MCG sent back with suggestions. MCG executive engineer Dharambir Malik said, "Together, the flyover and the underpass will make Atul Kataria Chowk a signal-free crossing. The chosen agency has already prepared the design, which needs some change."

A senior MCG official added, "After considering the current and future traffic flow on Old Delhi Gurgaon road, we decided to build both the flyover and the underpass, to make Atul Kataria Chowk signal-free."

As per plan, the flyover is proposed on the road from Dundahera border to Bus Stand on Old Delhi-Gurgaon road, while the underpass is proposed on the road from Maharana Pratap Chowk to Sheetla Mata road. The project is expected to cost around Rs 125 crore. However, the infrastructure development at the crossing won't be part of the ongoing Old Delhi-Gurgaon road upgrade project. A separate project is being prepared to develop the junction, officials said.

Underpasses and flyovers are being built at several important junctions on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway — Signature Tower, Iffco Chowk, Rajiv Chowk and Hero Honda Chowk. While the underpasses at Signature Tower, Iffco Chowk and Rajiv Chowk are expected to be completed by May 2018, flyovers at Hero Honda Chowk and Maharana Pratap Chowk are already operational.

The demand for a flyover or an underpass at Atul Kataria Chowk was raised after then mayor Vimal Yadav objected to a plan by authorities to upgrade Old Delhi-Gurgaon road into a six-lane stretch, on grounds that it doesn't address two major problems faced by commuters on the road — congestion at Atul Kataria Chowk and lack of space to turn around for heavy trailers coming from the Maruti factory.

The authorities had separately given approval for upgrading the 7.5km stretch of Old Delhi-Gurgaon road in 2015, without provision for either flyover or underpass at Atul Kataria Chowk. "The construction of flyover and underpass was needed at the crossing. The presence of the Maruti plant in the vicinity means there is heavy movement of large commercial vehicles across the chowk, causing congestion. Besides, this is an important junction connecting Old and New Gurgaons," said Surender Yadav, Sector 14 resident.
