Kundli expressway in 3 years

136-Km, 4-Laned Highway To Host High-Speed Traffic, Have Tourist Spots
Dipak Kumar Dash | TNN

Gurgaon: Finally, there’s some good news for the harassed drivers jostling for space on Delhi’s roads. Construction of the 136-km Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway is to begin next month and has to be completed within three years. This is expected to rid Delhi of at least half the traffic from other states passing through the city for other destinations.

The last hurdle was cleared with the Haryana State Industrial Development Corporation (HSIDC) holding public hearings for environmental impact assessment of the project in Gurgaon and Faridabad on Monday and Tuesday. HSIDC officials said the deadline has been set for November 2009 and sources at KMP Expressway, the developers, said they would try to complete it even earlier than that. ‘‘We have already moved machinery in order to complete the project ahead of the deadline,’’ said an official.

The HSIDC has already acquired land in a width of 100 metres along the alignment of the proposed expressway. It will take off from NH-1 near Kundli and intersect NH-10 at West Bahadurgarh and NH-8 near Manesar, finally joining NH-2 near Palwal. The expressway will be a dual carriageway with four lanes with a provision for widening it to six lanes. Hence, major traffic coming from Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan will no longer need to enter Delhi.

The expressway had been proposed following Supreme Court orders, on December 16, 2001 and July 15, 2002, that no heavy, medium and light goods vehicles on interstate routes would ply through Delhi. It had also ordered that there could be no corridor or bypass joining different national highways through the Capital.

The expressway will have grade separators at intersections. To keep this stretch exclusively for high-speed traffic, no slow moving or pedestrian traffic will be allowed on it.

At a later stage, land along the expressway will be acquired and tourist spots developed along the stretch. ‘‘These complexes won’t be visible from the main expressway as on highways in European countries. There will be indicators for food plazas and resting places for commuters. Roadside dhabas will not be allowed,’’ said a senior HSIDC official. As per the environment impact assessment report prepared by RITES for environmental enhancement along this stretch, greenery and water bodies will be developed. Truck parks, bus stops, rest areas and cultural properties will be created.

HURDLES CLEARED
  • Construction of 136-km expressway to begin next month
  • To be completed by November 2009
  • Land acquired and environmental impact assessment done
  • Dual carriageway with four lanes, provision for adding two more lanes
  • Only for high-speed traffic, provided with grade separators
  • Tourist spots to be developed along the stretch
  • Will reduce pollution, accidents in Delhi

Thumbs up

KMP Expressways achieves financial closure of BOT project

Quote:
KMP Expressways Ltd., the Special Purpose Vehicle executing the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway, today announced that it has achieved the financial closure for the Kundli - Manesar – Palwal Expressways Project awarded by Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation (HSIIDC). The KMP Expressway, also known as the western peripheral expressway is the largest expressway project in the country on Build Operate Transfer (BOT) basis. Out of the total cost of Rs.1915 crore, the SPV has tied up a debt of Rs. 1149 Crore, through a consortium of 12 banks/financial institutions led by IDBI Ltd. The arrangers for the debt are SBI Capital Markets Ltd. and IDBI Ltd.


KMP Expressway project on BOT basis envisages construction of the 135.6 Km, access controlled expressway from NH-1 near Kundli (Sonipat) crossing NH-10 at west of Bahadurgarh, crossing NH-8 at Manesar (Gurgaon) and joining NH-2 near Palwal (Faridabad). The work on the project has already begun and is scheduled for completion by July 2009.

Mr. Deepak Chatterjee, Senior Vice President, SBI Capital Markets Ltd. added “We are pleased to be associated with India’s largest BOT expressway project and one of the most significant in the PPP infrastructure development sector, as the lead arranger for the debt. The strengths built up into the SPV company in engineering construction, project management and the expertise to handle the challenge of complex infrastructure development and its ability to invest helped us get an overwhelming response for more than the debt requirement from 12 leading banks/Institutions including IDBI, SBI & Associates and IIFCL, among others.”

Making the announcement of the Financial Closure, Mr. H.S. Kohli, Chairman, KMP Expressways Ltd. said, “This project promises a huge growth potential for the entire region and will trigger prosperity along the expressway. We are proud to be the concessionaires of this prestigious project, which is in consonance with our Government’s dream called PURA - Providing Urban amenities to Rural Areas.”


“KMP Expressway project will match international standards of quality infrastructure. We have deployed state-of-the-art equipment with emphasis on aesthetics. We are confident that once completed, the expressway will create a benchmark in the pleasure of driving/commuting experience for years to come”, Mr. Kohli added.



Progress on the project



More than 98% of the land has already been acquired by HSIIDC and handed over to KMP Expressways Ltd. The Concessionaire has also put in place its Project Team. Topographical surveys, Sub-soil investigations, detailed Design of Highway and Structures, the Project Camp sites, etc. have already been completed. 95% progress has been achieved for the Survey and Center Line Marking. Required permissions from various departments have been obtained/ are being obtained. The execution of the project has been divided into 3 packages of 45 km each to be supervised by a Senior Project Manager. Earthwork and cross drainage work is in progress. More than Rs. 100 crores has already been invested into the project by the concessionaire.


Mr. Rajeev Arora, MD, HSIIDC present at the occasion said, “HSIIDC is proud to be the implementing agency of the largest expressway project in India. The Corporation envisages the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway to metamorphose the state of Haryana. Our vision is to replicate industrial and economic development in entire region on International standards. The expressway will provide high-speed link to Northern Haryana with its Southern districts such as Sonipat, Jhajjar, Gurgaon & Faridabad, thereby giving boost to the local economy.”

On the benefits accruing from the KMP Expressway to the state, Mr. Arora opined, “The State Government has been promoting public and private sector initiative for establishing world class infrastructure in Haryana. The development of this Global Urban Corridor along Kundli - Manesar – Palwal (KMP) Western Peripheral Expressways will give impetus to Real Estate, Special Economic Zones (SEZ), Independent townships/cities, Industrial Model Townships (IMT) Food Processing Units, Medicity, Financial Hubs, Tourist Resorts, Education City, Satellite Dwelling Units (SDU), etc. This will not only boost investor confidence but also provide world-class living and commuting experience. The Expressway will prove to be the backbone for the entire Industrial and Residential hubs coming up in the region.”

Five flyovers (interchanges) to come up on KMP Expressway


Quote:
Gurgaon, April 20: Five flyovers (interchanges) have been proposed on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway to decongest a stretch that cuts across NH1, NH2, NH8 and NH10.

The 135 km-expressway also hopes to propel economic growth in this mainly agrarian region, besides ensuring smooth traffic flow.

Seven overpasses and nine underpasses have been proposed at state highway and major district road crossings on the expressway.

Unlike the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, which does not have any pedestrian crossings so far, 62 pedestrian crossings have been proposed during the initial stage for the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway.

Keeping in mind the villages along the expressway, 32 agricultural vehicular underpasses have been planned in addition to 27 underpasses proposed at crossings of village roads and four railway overbridges.

Approval has been sought from the Ministry of Railways for the general arrangement drawings. 31 cattle crossings will be constructed and the expressway will also have two truck parking lots and four bus bays for better traffic movement.

“We received clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forests for the project,” says H S Kohli, chairman, KMP Expressways. So far, 38 lakh cubic metres of earthwork has been done on the expressway. “We want to complete the project ahead of schedule, which is July 2009,” adds Kohli.

“The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Development Corporation (HSIIDC) is considering design changes on NH1,NH2, NH8 and NH10 for better upgrade interchange,” said an HSIIDC official.

The project has also received a no objection certificate (NOC) from the Haryana State Pollution Control Board. The requisite permissions from the PWD (B&R), Haryana State Agriculture Marketing Board, BSNL, Irrigation Department, etc have been obtained for the project, according to KMP Expressways Limited.

Till date, the HSIIDC has transferred 3,330 acres of land out of a total of 3,354 acres to KMP Expressways Limited. “The remaining 24 acres of land is in the process of being acquired and transferred,” said the HSIIDC.

I skimmed though the video the other day and its pretty descent. It shows more about the developments around the expressway than of the actual road DSC plans to build.

And this video [200 MB] is of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. Its Slightly better and shows the some work done around the 2005-06 time frame.

KMP Expressway design upgraded


Quote:
THE HARYANA State Industrial & Infrastructure Devel- opment Corporation (HSIIDC), which is constructing the Kundli Manesar Palwal (KMP) Expressway on a build-op- erate-transfer (BoT) basis, has upgraded the design of the project. It has decided to construct interchanges on all the four intersections where the expressway crosses National High- ways 1, 2, 8 and 10. Earlier flyovers were planned at these four points. The HSIIDC and National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) have also approved the final design of the inter- changes, which will be constructed along with the clover- leaf loops. The interchanges will come up at intersections at NH-1 (Kundli), 8 (Manesar) and 10 (Bahadurgarh). The highways authority will be constructing the interchange at NH-2 (Palwal) on the expressway The NHAI is constructing the eastern peripheral ex- pressway, western and eastern peripheral expressways to- gether to make a ring around Delhi and offer an alternative corridor to long-route traffic.

Dec 25: Kundli-Ghaziabad-Palwal Expressway project set to roll by mid-2009

Quote:
NEW DELHI: After extending the deadline for submission of tenders twice, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has finally received a tender for Kundli-Ghaziabad-Palwal (KGP) Expressway. The 136-km expressway, to be built at the cost of Rs 2,676 crore, is expected to decongest Delhi roads as it will provide a bypass to trucks that use Delhi roads to go to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

According to NHAI sources, Reliance Infrastructure has emerged as the sole bidder for the green field project, popularly known as Eastern Peripheral Expressway.With transport secretary Brahm Dutt ruling out any further extension to complete the bidding process, it is expected that the final bidder will start the work by mid 2009. The project is expected to be completed by mid 2012. Sources said over 80% of land acquisition for the project has been completed.

The project involves construction of a six-lane expressway with access control highway connecting Faridabad, Noida, Gaziabad and Sonepat. It will also act as bypass to Delhi with a concession period of 20 years. The expressway is specifically designed to decongest the city traffic under Delhi High Court instructions.

The project takes off from NH-1 in Kundli , crosses Yamuna near Mawikalan, Hindon river near Sharfabad, NH-58 near Duhai, NH-24 near Dasna, NH-91 near Beelakbarpur, Kasna-Sikandrabad road near Sirsa, re-crosses Yamuna near Fajjupur Khadar, Atali-Chinsa near Maujpur and meets NH-2 beyond Palwal. It will pass through Sonipat and Faridabad in Haryana and Baghpat, Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar in Uttar Pradesh.

NHAI officials said the speed limit on the expressway will be 120 kmph. The project includes construction of three major bridges two across Yamuna and one across Hindon river besides 43 other bridges over canals and drains. Also, there will be 59 underpasses for pedestrians. For locals, the developer will construct service roads of about 90 km, which will provide connectivity between different areas along the expressway.

The 135.6km Western Peripheral Expressway (Kundli-Manesar-Palwal) is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009.
The two expressways will allow trucks to reach industrial townships in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh without entering Delhi. The KMP expressway is being built at the investment of Rs 1915 crore excluding the cost of land amounting to Rs 630 crore.

13 theme cities along Kundli Expressway

Quote:
The second spell of Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in Haryana seems to be pushing the development of 13 theme cities along the 136km-long Kundli-Manesar-Palwal expressway.

The directorate of town and country planning (DTCP) will notify land patches earmarked for these future cities as controlled areas for the specific use.

These proposed theme cities include cyber city, bio-science city, medical city, fashion city, entertainment city and leisure city. Deepender Singh Hooda, the MP from Rohtak, said on Sunday that out of these 13 theme cities, three would come up in Bahadurgarh on NH-10
and along the expressway.

For Gurgaon district, the state government has proposed five theme cities — fashion city, entertainment city, world trade centre, leisure city and retail merchandiser warehouse centre. Similarly, Sonepat district will have specialized activities like the Rajeev Gandhi Education City, Sonepat-Kundli multifunctional urban complex. This apart, the Haryana State Industrial Development Corporation (HSIIDC) is contemplating an industrial model township at Kharkhoda on the lines of Manesar.

Likewise, a leisure and a leather city have been proposed for Mewat, Palwal district will get a dry port city.

State government officials said that the development of these theme cities is a part of the plan to develop the areas along the KMP expressway as a global corridor. ‘‘A consultant engaged by the state government had proposed creation of sector-specific parks and sub-cities to ensure that economic activities are developed in a systematic manner,’’ said a senior DTCP official.

He added the time-frame for developing these cities has not been fixed by the state and would largely depend on foreign investment and investment from private players in the state. ‘‘All this will happen only when the expressway becomes functional. The work has already been delayed,’’ the official said.

Officials said the spatial plan of the corridor will be developed around a number of specialized economic activities and each activity is envisaged to be the focus of a selfsustaining cluster city. Sources said that the threshold population required for sustaining the physical and social infrastructure will govern the development of cluster cities.

It will be completed by the end of this year. A part of it (I guess Manesar-Palwal) will open earlier in mid-2010.

I cannot understand the need for having so many street lights on an expressway or an highway. It would be cheaper to line the lane markings with reflectors and maybe have street lights every 50 m or so.
