Soon, drive to Agra in two hours

Quote:
With the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) inviting bids for the six-laning of Delhi-Agra stretch of NH-2, driving down to the Taj city may soon be a smoother and quicker ride. Once completed, it would take not more than two hours to cover the 180km from Delhi to Agra as the maximum speed on this stretch would be 100 kmph.

NHAI sources said the date of the pre-bidding conference has been extended to December 18 and the revised last date of submitting bids has been fixed on January 12. The Rs 1,566 crore BOT project takes off from Delhi-Faridabad border, and traverses the districts of Agra, Mathura in Uttar Pradesh and Faridabad in Haryana.

"We are hopeful of good participation in the pre-bidding conference and of awarding the project soon. However, we are little skeptical of the impact of financial meltdown," said a senior NHAI official.

For uninterrupted traffic flow on this proposed six-lane access control highway, NHAI proposes construction of as many as 25 flyovers at all the major junctions throughout the stretch while the minor ones would be done away with. To meet the operational objective of maintaining uninterrupted flow of traffic without reducing the speed to accommodate entry, exit or cross movement of other traffic, there are proposals for construction of 32 vehicular and 61 pedestrian underpasses besides having 76 entry and exit points to the partially access-controlled highway.

This portion of NH-2 is already four-lane and the corridor has been identified as one of the fastest growing economic corridors. As per the proposal, six-lane flyovers would be constructed at NHPC Chowk, Bhatkal Lake, Old Faridabad Chowk, Ajronda Chowk, HUDA Residency, HIDC Chowk, Bata Chowk in falling in Faridabad. "These proposed flyovers would also help decongest crossings in Faridabad. All the main crossings on the existing stretch would be done away with construction of flyovers whether it is in Palwal, Hodal, Mathura and Agra,'' said an NHAI official.

The feasibility report for the project mentions many median openings at shorter intervals, not only create traffic hazards, but also to reduce the efficiency of the high-speed corridor. According to the report, NHAI also proposes to construct a service road to act as a physical barrier to avoid changes for merging or mingling with the main traffic of the highway. "Slow moving traffic mixing with the high speed traffic has been one of the main reasons of accidents. There have been several instances of bullock carts using this stretch in areas such as Hodal, which make the stretch extremely vulnerable. With the construction of service road, these can be avoided,'' said an official.

NH-2 widening project in limbo, no takers for this ambitious NHAI project

Quote:
The project for widening the National Highway (NH)-2 from Delhi to Agra to six lanes is in limbo. There are no takers for this ambitious project of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), estimated to cost of RS 1,566 Crore.
The 180-km Delhi-Agra corridor on NH-2 from Badarpur border to Agra is four-lane.

Vehicular load has been increasing on this stretch over the years as Agra is an international tourist destination and major business cities in Maharashtra and Gujarat are connected with this route. Hence NHAI had proposed the six-laning of the section.

“There has been a poor response to our two notices, inviting tenders for the project in the recent past. It seems the companies are not ready to take up the project owing to the ongoing economic meltdown. No consortium has evinced interest in this build-operate transfer project so far,” said an NHAI official.

NHAI has proposed construction of 29 flyovers at all the major junctions throughout the stretch. To meet the operational objective of maintaining uninterrupted flow of traffic without reducing the speed to accommodate entry, exit or cross movement of other traffic, the detailed project report for six-laning on NH-2 includes construction of 32 vehicular and 61 pedestrian underpass- es, besides 76 entry and exit points on the corridor.

As per the proposal, six-lane flyovers would be constructed at NHPC Chowk, Badkhal Morh Chowk, Old Faridabad Chowk, Ajronda Chowk, HUDA City Centre Chowk, Anuvrat Marg Chowk and Bata Chowk in Faridabad. All the main cross- ings on the existing stretch would also be done away with, with the construction of flyovers in Palwal, Hodal, Mathura and Agra.

NHAI also proposes to construct a service road to act as a physical barrier between the slow moving intra-city transport and the fast moving vehicles bound for long distance to avoid merging.

A couple of years back, NHAI had widened some important junctions from Badarpur border to Ballabgarh to reduce congestion at these bottlenecks.
The widening was done at Sarai Khwaja Chowk, Badkhal Morh Chowk, Rajiv Gandhi Chowk and Ajronda Chowk. While it did ease congestion to some extent, there was hardly any marked relief due to the increase in the vehicular load all these years.

Not exactly parallel but they are not far away from each other. NH-2 runs near the right bank of Yamuna (west of Yamuna) while Yamuna expy runs on the left bank (east of Yamuna)

That's the alignment of NH-2 with respect to Yamuna. Yamuna expressway will be on the east side of Yamuna.

Is Yamuna Expressway running through Aligarh and other reasonably large cities? If not, the only purpose of this road is to get from Delhi to Agra. Also, what are the plans for exits on Yamuna Expressway?

Not through Aligarh but close to it. It is mainly supposed to connect Delhi and Agra and develop new cities and townships in between

Means it will run parallel to NH 91 and 93. When we have NH 2 and NH 91 & 93 what is the need for Yamuna Expressway.

IMO the upgradation of both these highways would have made more sense.

Anyways we can't expect anything sensible from Mayawati.

It isn't possible to develop NH-2 and NH-91 to 8 lane expressway with 2-3 lane service road on both sides without creating Singur like situation. Both of these highways pass through developed regions and they can be only minimally upgraded. Plus this expressways opens large tracts of land for Greenfield development being close to Noida and Greater Noida and Faridabad.

IMO, govt. should six lane bangalore-chennai or some other major route rather than delhi agra. The Yamuna expressway will suffice for the near future. These funds are more needed for development of expressways in other regions.
But if a company is ready to make it with a negative viability gap, then the govt. should go for it..not otherwise

NHAI to begin four-laning of three highways

Quote:
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is set to begin the four-laning and strengthening of three highways connecting UP with Delhi and Haridwar.

The Highway Authority has finalised the developers who will upgrade the stretches within the next six months.

The national highway sections include Ghaziabad-Aligarh (106 km), Moradabad-Bareilly (112 km) and Muzaffarnagar-Haridwar (139 km).

These highways are to be upgraded by the private concessionaires on Built-Operate-Transfer (BOT) basis. "Contractors for all three projects have been finalised and a letter of acceptance has been issued to them," said H C Arora, Chief General Manager of NHAI.

The Highway Authority has selected a consortium of SREI Infrastructure to four-lane the existing two-lane Ghaziabad-Aligarh section of National Highway-91. Estimated cost of the project is around Rs 1,570 crore.

Another project of four-laning the Moradabad-Bareilly section has been awarded to Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS Ltd). This section of NH-24 connects Lucknow to New Delhi via Shahjahanpur, Bareilly, Rampur, Moradabad and Ghaziabad. The estimated cost of the project is around Rs 1,260 crore.

The Muzaffarnagar-Haridwar section (NH-58) that connects UP with Uttarakhand would be developed by Delhi-based firm Era Infrastructure Engineering. There was some delay in completing the bidding process of this project as the state government had refused to sign the State Support Agreement (SSA) for 21-km stretch falling in UP.

"Now we will develop the highway without SSA with UP government. Land has been acquired and widening will start very soon," Arora said.

The Highway Authority claims that within the next three years, the Lucknow-Delhi highway would be four-laned completely.

Govt is 6 laning Bangalore-Chennai as well. Delhi-Agra highway is not just used for commuting between Delhi and Agra but beyond these 2 cities. It is one of the busiest highway sections of India. It is just one of a part of NH-2.

You might be aware of the fact that in NHDP Phase-5, about 6500 km of 4 lane highways will be 6 laned, out of which most of the length belongs to GQ. Now obviously the busier sections of GQ will be 6 laned before the less busier ones. That's why sections like Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Panipat, Delhi-Agra, Mumbai-Surat, Bangalore-Chennai, Bangalore-Hyderabad and Kolkata-Dhanbad were given higher preference.

Yamuna expressway has a different purpose. Its purpose is mainly to provide point to point connectivity between Delhi and Agra and later turn into an urban freeway like Delhi-Gurgaon expressway by developing the virgin areas from Noida to Agra as per the agreement. It will also open up a lot of virgin land for urbanisation. This is an example of development leading urbanisation.

Map of Upper Ganga Canal Expressway



Source

It is an 8 lane expressway and starts from Sanauta Bridge near Dehra in Greater Noida and ends 10 km before UP-Uttarakhand border. Length of the main expressway is 141 km and that of the 4 links is 74 km.

It's route is quite parallel to proposed 8 lane Delhi-Meerut expressway and NH-58. So many wide roads would be an overkill in short term. Rather an 8 lane expressway could have been built in east direction instead of North-east.

It will also have links with Eastern Peripheral expressway, Greater Noida expressway, Yamuna expressway, proposed Delhi-Meerut expressway, NH-24,58 and other highways in the region.

Top guns show keen interest in new UP expressway bid

Quote:
As many as 30-odd reputed companies, including Reliance Infrastructure, Jaypee Infratech, Tata Realty and Infrastructure, GVK Power & Infrastructure, IRB Infrastructure Development, Nagarjuna Infrastructure, Punj Lloyd, Lanco Infrastrech and many others have shown a keen interest in getting the bid rights for the 170-km-long 8-lane access controlled Upper Ganga Canal expressway from Sanauta bridge in Greater Noida to Purkazi in Uttarakhand. The project is to be built on DBFOT pattern and the total construction cost of the expressway and links is estimated to be around Rs 6200 crores.

The good participation from companies at the first pre-bid conference held in New Delhi on Wednesday has reaffirmed the Uttar Pradesh government's belief that this project is not only going to be the most viable but also the first one in which not many roadblocks are anticipated. "The primary reason for this is that the state government has eliminated the risk of the project to a large extent by promising to provide the land free of cost to the developer. So with a major hurdle in any infrastructure project these days being done away with, developers are keen to bag the project and start work immediately," said an official.

In fact, the entire 571 hectares' stretch of land for right of way will be provided free of cost to the developer and in addition, another 100 hectares of land for the land parcel will be provided free by the irrigation department.

In today's meeting, the state government not only showcased its own views on the projects but also heard various issues that were raised by the developers. Of them the most import was that the state government should reduce the lock-in period of the lead partner from the entire concession period to two years, as is the Government of India's norms in highway projects.

According to sources, the companies also sought more time to wrap up the project. It may be mentioned that the government aims at handing over the project to the selected bidder by the end of March. The second pre-bid conference for the project is expected to be held on February 11.

Length of the road differs from source source. Somewhere it is 141, somewhere it is 170.

Upper Ganga Canal Expressway Work to commence in April

Quote:
The Uttar Pradesh government plans to construct a 170-km expressway along the Upper Ganga Canal in partnership with IL&FS-IDC. Work on the project is likely to commence in April this year after the preliminary survey and bidding process is complete.


Decks have been cleared for the construction of the 170-km-long 8-lane restricted entry expressway from near Dehra in Ghaziabad to Purkazi in Uttarakhand. Work on the construction of the Upper Ganga Canal Expressway, previously known as Hindon Expressway is expected to start in April after the requests for qualification and proposal are finalised and a developer selected. The expressway will facilitate traffic movement and expedite industrial development in the state.

The Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) and Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) and Infrastructure Development Corporation (IDC), the consultant for the project signed an agreement for the expressway recently. What is interesting is that sufficient land for the expressway is already available with the state irrigation department, so land acquisition will not be a bottleneck, as has been the case with other infrastructure projects in the state.

It may be mentioned that the Uttar Pradesh government had, late last year, changed the route of the proposed eight-lane expressway, by aligning it with the Upper Ganga Canal instead of the Hindon river, to sidetrack the problems associated with land acquisition on the original route. The new route is shorter than the original one, which was supposed to be 250 km long.


Uttar Pradesh government has drawn up a plan for a Rs 6,200-crore expressway which envisages assured land rights. The Upper Ganga Canal Expressway will start from Sanauta Bridge in Greater Noida and end at Purkazi, on the Uttarakhand border. The Greater Noida Authority has been roped in to connect the incoming traffic from the Yamuna Expressway to this expressway and also the Delhi traffic from Parichowk, in Greater Noida to the UGC.

UGC expressway extended by 8 km

Length of Upper Ganga Canal expressway has been increased by 8 km from 141 km to 149 km and now it will be linked to NH-58 near Pukarji (Muzzafar Nagar). UP govt will discuss with Uttarakhand govt to extend the expressway to Haridwar.

Authority said this project will be successful because of links with Eastern Peripheral expressway and Yamuna expressway.

Pre-bid meeting has been extended from 8 March to 24 March and date of announcement of developer's selection has been extended from 29 March to 22 April.
