Dwarka Expressway is soon going to witness a new high. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has planned to construct a 9 KM long elevated road in a bid to improve the connectivity between Delhi-Haryana border and the Basai railway overbridge. It will improve the connectivity to the area and cut short the travel time for both the commuters as well as residents in the area.
“This is a positive development. The fast completion of the Dwarka Expressway would improve connectivity and reduce travel time, giving further boost to New Gurgaon. It will strengthen the connectivity and benefit residents living in this part, starting from Vatika India Next and Vatika Express City to Sector 115,” said Anupam Varshney, Head- sales and marketing, Vatika Limited.
The elevated road will come up on the Dwarka expressway, a 9km stretch from the Delhi-Haryana border to the Basai railway over bridge in sector 100 of Gurgaon.
Dwarka expressway has recently been accorded the national highway status. The expressway is now going to have eight lanes instead of six.
“It will act as an engine of growth for the construction taking in new Gurgaon area and thereby improving the connectivity to the expressway,” said Ravish Kapoor, Director, Elan Group.
“With the construction work at fast pace it is expected that the expressway would be completed soon and benefit all the commuters as well as residents in the areas nearby. It will reduce the travel time to a large extent,” said Vineet Relia, Managing Director, SARE Homes
The Dwarka expressway is expected to witness heavy traffic when it opens, more so because Gurgaon’s new sectors have been built on either side of it, and the flyovers and underpasses are necessary to avoid gridlocks like the ones that NH8 currently witnesses.
“Dwarka Expressway is the Expressway of the future. This micromarket is bound to emerge as an important real estate hub in the next 6-12 months. The widening of the eway combined with the completion of this important stretch is a welcome development and an important step in making this all important highway fully functional. This will ease access to various sectors and the connectivity gap on the Northern Peripheral Road also will be a thing of the past,” said Pankaj Bansal, Director, M3M Group.
As per the NHAI, the Dwarka Expressway will be executed in phases. In the first phase, tenders were invited for the 10km road which will be elevated. The purpose of the elevated road is to separate local traffic from the expressway’s long distance traffic.
