A day after it was reported that the firm managing the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway had failed to install lane driving signboards even after repeated directions of the city police, the company Tuesday refuted the claims and said it had put up 40 signboards last week.
It said that 30 more such boards would be put up in the next fortnight. While divulging detailing about the work on the expressway starting from Rao Tula Ram Marg in New Delhi to Kherki Daula in Gurgaon on the NH-8, a Delhi Gurgaon Super Connectivity Limited (DGSCL) spokesperson said that 18 signboards have been put up at three foot-over-bridges on the Haryana side of the expressway.
The location of two of these FOBs is between Shankar Chowk and IFFCO Chowk while the third one is put up near Rajiv Chowk.
“Six signboards have been put up at each of the FOBS -- three on each side. Another 20 signboards for lane driving are put up between the KM 24 and KM 42 toll plaza. These have been mounted on electrical poles,” he said.
Recently, the Gurgaon traffic police had asked the expressway concessionaire firm to install lane driving metal signboards on each and every electric pole on the expressway which would help drivers stick to their lanes.
