18-Month Timeline To Build Dwarka E-Way Service Roads
According to the officials, the land required for the construction of service roads along the Dwarka Expressway is already available with the GMDA. The authority will use approximately 7.5 metres of land on both sides of the Dwarka Expressway, 5.5 metres of which will be used for service roads and other utilities such as sewage and so on.
According to Shweta Sharma, GMDA’s executive engineer, “We have been given administrative permission to construct service roads along the Dwarka Expressway. Within a week, the tender will be issued.” According to the GMDA’s engineering cell, the construction of the service roads is expected to take 18 months from the date of the work order.
The GMDA’s relocation has been praised by residents. Without the secondary roads, the Dwarka Expressway would have been insufficient. The service roads will also aid in the prevention of unapproved development along the expressway.
The HSVP was supposed to build the expressway, but due to delays and obstacles, the Haryana government requested that the project be taken over by the NHAI.
