The Municipal Corporation of Gurgoan (MCG) has planned to construct an elevated corridor along Sohna Road. The civic body has sought feasibility reports from experts for the construction of a 2-km flyover near Badshahpur.

The MCG has floated tenders seeking consultancy services in order to prepare a techno-economic feasibility report for an elevated corridor on Sohna Road-Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) Crossing near Badshahpur, said a senior MCG official.

"By January 11, the corporation will select the company which will submit its first feasibility report by February 15," the official said but refused to reveal planned width, length, cost and other details, saying it would be inappropriate without a feasibility report.

However, the official said that the plan is to construct a 2-km elevated road between Vatika City and Badshahpur Market. The new flyover may start from 300-meter behind Sohna Road-SPR Crossing.

The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) and the Haryana Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) are also involved in the project, said the official.

"The MCG has taken the initiative for the project because a major portion of the proposed corridor is in Badshahpur, which falls under the corporation's jurisdiction," the official said.

Huda has already planned a flyover at Subhash Chowk on Sohna Road and the project is at DPR (detailed project report) stage.

The two flyovers would prove to be a boon for the city as the areas along the Sohna Road are emerging as a bustling commercial hub similar to the MG Road.

The Sohna Master Plan Draft 2031 states the need of flyovers in view of the increasing traffic volume near Cyber City, along the southern peripheral road and Sohna Road due to proper connectivity between Faridabad, Gurgaon and Manesar.
