Soon, an eight-lane, signal-free road from the Shankar Chowk crossing on Gurgaon Expressway to the Sector 56 roundabout on Golf Course Road would make traffic jams a thing of the past.

Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda accorded approval to the project costing R346 crore on Wednesday that would be developed by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and DLF Group on cost sharing basis.

The project would have two flyovers and three underpasses as well as service lanes along the main road spanning 6.5 kilometres.

This is likely to ease traffic movement on Golf Course Road, Faridabad Road, MG Road and DLF Cybercity.

According to HUDA chief engineer VK Gupta, the authority administrator would now draw the agreement to be signed between HUDA and DLF listing out the terms and conditions to share cost on 50:50 basis.

A committee of officials from both parties will be constituted for floating global tenders for the project. The project is likely to be completed in three years after the award of the tender.

The underpasses would come up on the busy Sikanderpur Chwok on MG Road and Genpact roundabout from where a road leads to Faridabad.

The flyovers will come up on the MLA flat crossing, Sector 43 crossing and Sector 56 roundabout.

Residents of DLF City Phase 1, 2,3 and sectors 27, 28, 42, 43, 56 would be the immediate beneficiaries of the project. Executives working in DLF Cybercity, the hub of various multi-national companies, would also benefit from this no-stops highway.

In addition, the 6.1-km Gurgaon Rapid Metro Train project is also likely to be ready by January 2013.
