The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) will construct four flyovers on the under-construction Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) Expressway, also known as Dwarka Expressway connecting NH-8.
This was informed by senior officials of the town and country planning department during a meeting held here on Saturday. The Northern Peripheral Road will link Palam Vihar and MG Road via NH-8 near Kherki Dhaula village.
Huda has also been asked to work out a project report for initiating horticulture work along the road.
Earlier, there was no plan for constructing flyovers on the stretch. The project report had provisioned for just one railway over bridge (ROB) on the 18-km-long and 150-metre-wide e-way, also called the future lifeline of Gurgaon.
Construction on the 14-km stretch of this project is already underway as Huda had awarded a tender for R43 crore to India Bulls in March this year. The remaining 4 km stretch is under litigation.
Haryana finance commissioner and principal secretary (town and planning department) SS Dhillon has directed Huda administrator Parveen Kumar to issue tenders for the flyovers on NPR.
HUDA was asked to get flyovers constructed on the intersections of the Pataudi Road near Sector 88, Farrukhnanagr Road near sectors 100 and 101, Daultabad road near sectors 104 and 105 and another road crossing NPR near sectors 110A and 111.
Work on the stretch is likely to be completed in 18 months of its commissioning — July 2012. However, construction of four new flyovers on the stretch will extend the deadline.
Huda officials said the sites of all four proposed flyovers were not under litigation and therefore, would not be affected or delayed. Dhillon also asked Huda authorities to move the Punjab and Haryana High Court and file a special petition to get early hearing on cases related to the pending 4-km stretch, so that work could be initiated.
