NH2 is dotted by a string of smaller towns including Faridabad so there's a lot of local traffic that uses it as well. This upgrade will help those folks + the ones living in Faridabad and thereabouts as this route is and will be the fastest route to reach Agra. The EPE might change things but that will have to be proven.

Whereabouts on the stretch are these pics from? Closer to the manesar end? I don't think near the dwarka end correct? Though I remember seeing some work underway near the stretch that connects to the najafgarh-kapashera bit, will drive down one of these days and do a recce.

Does anyone have any update on the UER2 status? I keep hoping Delhi admin would fast track this stretch, most traffic problems on the outer ring road, RTR flyover, Gurgaon Sirhaul toll plaza, BRT crossing at Chirag dilli, and NH24' now with expansion plans it, Mahipalpur crossing, all would get fixed if they expedited this UER2 stretch.

It would do wonders for Realty in Noida and Gazhiabad as well, with the UER2 plans to connect NH8 from near the Shiv Murti to NH2 near the Badarpur crossing, all the UP govt. would need to do is make a expressway link from gazhiabad/Noida to this entry point to the UER2 near the NH2, and they would expressway connectivity to the Delhi International Airport! Greater Noida, Faridabad all would get direct access to the domestic and the international airport. And with what's planned for the UER2, it would be expressway ride all the way.

Google maps shows UER II for some distance but if you see it in satellite imagery, it's nothing more than a dirt track as of now. At many places it would need to pass through dense settlements. I am not sure how they will acquire so much of property. I am not much hopeful for timely completion of any of the UER.

That's the bit from NH10 to NH8 that's got the encroachments, but from NH8 to NH2 I didn't see any dirt roads nor much habitation, no dirt roads means its worse off than the earlier bit :-(

That's UER 3 which you are talking about. UER 2 is marked between NH-1 and NH-10. I could not see UER 2 south of NH-10.

Those were taken roughly midway. The first one was shot north of the intersection of Pataudi road and the railway line (sector 37) while the second was taken close to Daulatabad village (sector 103)

In fact both UER II and III are shown in Google maps (see the pic below). I think UER I is wrongly marked as UER III.

Pics of construction of service lanes on Delhi Gurgaon expressway (clicked along with MOD and Metrofreak). There is a small stretch which does not have service lanes on one side because NHAI could not acquire airport land from AAI for building service lanes. Work is underway now for this portion.








This is an old pic of the expressway. Notice the missing service lanes on one of the carriageways.

July 11: Haryana, Rajasthan clear alignment of Delhi-Jaipur expressway

Quote:
NEW DELHI: The proposed six-lane expressway from Delhi to Jaipur has cleared a major hurdle. The new alignment of the expressway, which will have a limited number of entries and exits, has been approved by Haryana and Rajasthan. The two states want National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the highways ministry to consult them while proposing real estate development along the expressway.

Delhi government has already given an in-principle approval to the access-controlled expressway which is expected to slash travel time between the two cities to less than three hours. The length of the new alignment will be around 230-240 km. The portion of the expressway falling in Delhi will be elevated since availability of land is a problem in the national capital.

Haryana town and country planning (DTCP) secretary S S Dhillon recently wrote to NHAI saying that the state would provide all support to the Centre for execution of the project, including land acquisition matters, said a senior Haryana government official. Rough estimates by NHAI suggest the project could cost around Rs 12,000 crore. Those pockets which will be developed for residential and commercial projects along the expressway may be given access to the highway. This will cross subsidize the project for developers," said a ministry source.

The new expressway has become a necessity because of the increasing congestion on NH-8. The traffic chaos will only get worse due to the widening of the stretch between Delhi and Jaipur. At present, traffic jams are regularly reported from this stretch since the road width has reduced. "In future, this new-alignment expressway would be a part of the continuous expressway connectivity between Delhi and Mumbai," said a government source.

Haryana government officials told TOI that they have agreed to NHAI's proposal of making the link pass through Gurgaon, Manesar, Rewari and Kothputli. However, the approval comes with a rider. One of the conditions put forward by the state is that the alignment should not affect any housing or commercial projects in the state for which DTCP has already issued licences. Moreover, the state wants NHAI to elevate the portion of the expressway which cross state roads. Haryana has also asked the highway authority to help the government improvesome of the state roads along the new expressway and to provide links to them.

The new alignment is likely to be announced next week. In his letter to NHAI, Rajasthan's chief secretary has reportedly said that the state government wants the road authority to provide a link from the expressway to the industrial township of Bhiwadi.

The state has also sought a short link from Jaipur city to the expressway. As per the proposal, the expressway will join the Jaipur bypass, which falls on the outskirts of the city.

Rs 222-cr 4-lane 25 km road to link Delhi, Haryana

Quote:
For smooth and faster traffic flow, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway has decided to construct four-lane roads from Dwarka in Delhi to Dhansa-Badli-Jhajjar (Haryana). The total length of the lane would be 25 kms and the project cost is estimated at around Rs 222 crore.

This will be a direct route to Indira Gandhi International Airport for traffic coming from Jhajjar, Badli and Najafgarh. The road will be constructed adjacent to single-lane road along bank of drain number 8 (Najafgarh drain) to join Jhajjar to Dwarka and IGI airport. This road will serve as a bypass and there will be great relief from regular traffic jams in Najafgarh.

The proposal has been approved by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the Haryana Government and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. The Delhi Government has decided to appoint consultant for feasibility report on the project. The road falling in Haryana’s jurisdiction will be constructed by the State Government while the Delhi Government will construct its own part of the road. The project will be funded by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.

Delhi PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan told The Pioneer that PWD would soon start the process to appoint consultant for the project on the part of the Delhi Government. “This is a new connectivity and approval of the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning & Engineering) Centre and Delhi Urban Arts Commission will be required,” he said.

The Minister said that earlier, a rough estimate amounting to Rs 117 crore was submitted by the PWD. Later, they submitted a proposal of Rs 150 crore that includes one four-lane flyover and road signages. Later on, they submitted a modified estimate of Rs 222 crore.
<snip>
this road will be a direct approach to KMP Expressway near Badli from the national Capital.
Since the MoRTH is involved in the project, this might be given an official NH status with a number.

Some tidbits on the Delhi-Jaipur expressway:

Delhi-Jaipur Expressway route mapping complete

Quote:
NEW DELHI, JULY 29:
Route identification for the ambitious 265 km Delhi-Jaipur Expressway on the line of Yamuna Expressway to Agra has been completed, the Road Transport and Highways Minister, Mr C. P. Joshi, has said.

“Land alignment (route-mapping) is final. We want an expressway on the PPP (Public-Private Partnership) model,” Joshi told PTI.

The starting point in the national capital for the expressway, for which the detailed project report has been finalised, would be the Indira Gandhi International Airport.


He said that alongside the expressway, with controlled access, will be a few nodes where real estate hubs would be developed. “We have outlined alignments for developing real estate,” Mr Joshi said, adding that discussions are on with the State Governments of Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan. “We have to bring the State Governments on board. We have outlined alignments for developing real estate. Investment requirement is not finalised yet but it will have a new finance model,” he said. Joshi said the project is very much “practical and pragmatic”.

Asked about the timeline for the project, the Minister said that he does not foresee problems in land acquisition because the requirement will not be not much. Even for the real estate development projects, there would be a limited number of hubs. Besides, the coordination with the States will be easier because all them are under Congress rule, he said.

Joshi said that though the Government had, in 2006-07, planned to construct 10 expressways, progress could be made only in two, namely Delhi-Jaipur and Delhi- Chandigarh. However, for the Delhi-Chandigarh, the route alignment is yet to be finalised. “We are working on it,” he said.
Once the developer gets finalized, a new thread in the Highways forum will be created.

SEW consortium begins work on Delhi-Saharanpur road project

Quote:
HYDERABAD, AUGUST 2:
A consortium headed by SEW Infrastructure Limited has commenced work on the Rs 2,770-crore road project in Uttar Pradesh.

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, on Wednesday laid the foundation stone for the project, according to a statement from the Hyderabad-based infrastructure company.

The build, operate and transfer (BOT) project seeks to take up four-laning work of the 206-kilometre stretch between the Delhi–Saharanpur section of the Uttar Pradesh State Highway-57.

This inauguration was part of the Chief Minister’s schedule of laying the foundation stones for four road projects from Lucknow including the Delhi-Saharanpur project. The SEW–Prasad Consortium was awarded the contract through a global tender process. The project has a concession period of 25 years.
