The Gurgaon traffic police department along with officials of the expressway concessionaire firm, the Delhi-Gurgaon Super Connectivity Ltd (DGSCL), National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) and Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) did a recce of the service lanes of the expressway on Monday.
The move follows directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court to the Haryana government and NHAI to find a permanent solution to traffic snarls on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway and prepare a traffic plan for the same.
The Haryana government and NHAI are supposed to file their reply in the court on September 20. Monday also witnessed a high-level meeting of Haryana government officials, including chief secretary PK Chaudhary, DGSCL and NHAI officials at the NHAI headquarters in Delhi.
The outcome of the meeting is currently not known.
The court orders were issued on September 4 when the concessionaire firm was barred from collecting toll from commuters for 15 days. The Delhi-Gurgaon e-way will remain toll-free till September 20.
All these agencies are at their toes after the high court asked them to find a permanent solution to the traffic problem.
The joint team visited Signature Tower, Iffco Chowk, Shankar Chowk and Rajeev Chowk to find a solution to traffic chaos.
“The morning visit was a final check-up to implement the new steps to find a permanent solution to the traffic problem,” said an official on condition of anonymity.
