Five Key Highways In Gurugram Will Be Upgraded To Connect To The Dwarka Expressway

The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) will rebuild five master roads between sectors 99 and 115 to link traffic with the newly opened Dwarka Expressway. These roads are currently impassable and full of potholes, with blacktop layers washed away.

More than 80 crores would be spent on the development of these five connecting highways, which are expected to be completed within a year. The GMDA’s 62nd core planning cell meeting, held on Tuesday, approved the renovation of these roads and the issuance of tenders.

All these roads were developed by Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) in the year 2014 and were handed over to GMDA in 2018. After the handover, only patchwork had been done on all of these 5 roads.

The passage of large cars during the Expressway building harmed the roadways. All these roads will require a new construction to make it smooth commuting.

The 700 metres long sector 114 outer road will be built at a cost of 10.66 crore. The second road will be the master linking roads for 102 and 102A sector, which will be built with a cost of 15.48 crore.

The third will be a road connecting sectors 106 and 103 that would cross the Expressway and will cost Rs. 17.86 crore.

The fourth route connects sectors 106 and 109, which will be made with an 18.92 crore cost. According to officials, there will be an intersection on this route that will also connect to the Dwarka Expressway.

The master road between sectors 102A and 103, which would cost 16.41 crore, is the last road that the GMDA has planned to build.

Officials stated that the master roads connecting sectors 102 and 102A, as well as sectors 102A and 103, will be critical because the forthcoming Sheetla Mata Medical College and Hospital is being built in Sector 102A.

In addition, the master road joining sectors 102 and 102A will connect Hero Honda Chowk to AIIMS. The GMDA’s chief executive officer, PC Meena, stated that it has been instructed to ensure that the infrastructures being created include flyovers and underpasses.

The redesign takes into account once the Dwarka Expressway is operational, development work in these areas may boost.” In addition, orders have been issued for the development of appropriate drainage systems along with the highways,” he said.
