Soon, commuters in the New Gurgaon areas can expect relief from frequent snarls. Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) on Friday began the construction of a 600-metre flyover at Subhash Chowk.
The facility is expected to provide smooth vehicular movement between Huda City Centre and Hero Honda Chowk on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.
On Friday, a team of Huda officials visited the proposed site on Sohna Road and inspected underground facilities such as electricity, water and sewage lines in the area.
“With the help of metal detectors, we are locating underground gas pipelines, power cables and water lines near the site to identify the spot where pillar of the flyover can be installed,” said Mahipal, junior engineer (JE), Huda, who led the inspection team.
Pipelines of sewage, storm water, and two gas supply lines of Haryana City Gas and Gas authority of India limited (GAIL) are running underground at the construction site.
“We do not want basic services such as water and power to get disrupted in the upscale localities along Sohna Road,” Mahipal said.
A senior Huda official said that electricity cables and pipelines can be shifted if needed. But the residents will be informed about disruption of basic services in advance.
The Haryana government gave its nod to the R21-crore flyover project in March this year. It is scheduled to be completed in 18 months.
“A flyover at Subhash Chowk was the need of the hour. It will definitely ease traffic woes of New Gurgaon residents and ensure non-stop traffic flow,” said Raj Kiran, a resident.
Another flyover proposed is likely to come up between the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Sohna Road intersection near Badshahpur.
