CPR And The Loop Connecting Dwarka Expressway And NH-8 Are Now Open For Traffic

The CPR is an essential part of Dwarka Expressway Package 4, and construction has continued since 2019. The Gurugram district government announced on Wednesday that traffic on the Central Peripheral Road (CPR) had reopened, which is a huge relief for commuters.

Nishant Yadav, deputy commissioner of Gurugram, stated that a meeting with officials from the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) had been scheduled for Thursday.

The district government also stated that traffic on the Atul Kataria flyover will be disrupted until May 31 due to a stress test on the structure.

The CPR is part of Dwarka Expressway Package 4, and construction has been ongoing since 2019. This package begins at the Basai road underbridge and ends at NH-8 at Kherki Daula.

It is 8.76 kilometres long and costs Rs. 2,182 crore to build. The CPR is 3.2 kilometres long, beginning near the Kherki Daula toll plaza and ending in Harsaru hamlet. The rest of the road leads to the Basai road underbridge and to Delhi.

According to NHAI officials, about 99% of package four has been completed, and this portion is ready for traffic.

On May 18, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari inspected the complete Dwarka Expressway and stated that package four had minor flaws that would be addressed soon. However, he stated that the NHAI would not wait for a ceremonial inauguration before opening the road for passenger convenience.

Pravin Malik, a resident of Sector 91, expressed gratitude to the district government for opening the CPR because it will benefit thousands of residents in the emerging sectors.

Meanwhile, the Gururgam government said on Thursday that traffic on the Lieutenant Atul Kataria Chowk flyover will be disrupted for the next week as the structure is tested for strength.

Yadav says traffic will be restricted on the highway connecting Kapashera and Delhi from Thursday to Saturday. In addition, traffic will be restricted on the opposite lane from Sunday until next Wednesday.

Yadav stated that this flyover will be subjected to regular testing and surveillance of safety-related norms, disrupting traffic.
