Conceived around four years ago, the much-awaited Rs. 600-crore Huda-DLF sector road is expected to be completed within the deadline of September 2014 despite the delay, an official said on Thursday. The 8.3-kilometre road that will allow signal-free travel from the Delhi-Gurgaon toll plaza to Golf Course Road will be constructed by June 2014, said S Roy, vice president, DLF corporate communications.

Construction major IL&FS has been awarded the contract for the 16-lane road which will reduce the travel time on the stretch from 30 minutes presently to seven minutes.

"The road will cater to approximately 15 lakh commuters, including corporates and residents," said DLF officials. The road extends from Gateway Tower on NH-8 to the end of Sector 55-56 and is designed to accommodate higher traffic volume.

The corridor would be fully integrated with the Rapid Metro system. Residents of DLF Phase I, II, IV and V, condominiums such as Belvedere Park and Belvedere Tower, Sector 55, 56 will benefit from the project.

"The 16-lane corridor would be signal free, providing free movement for commuters on either side and will feature six underpasses that would reduce noise pollution. There is also a dedicated corridor for sector 25 to sectors 55 and 56, which will mitigate traffic and thereby enable smooth flow of main traffic. The estimated project cost will be Rs.540 crore and completed in three years," the official added.
