From August, reaching the Indira Gandhi International Airport from Gurgaon will be a breeze — and it’ll be free.
Cars from Gurgaon coming to IGI and its brand new Terminal 3 building will have a dedicated three-lane road.
The road, which is in the final stages of construction, will take motorists directly from the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway on NH-8 to the Airport road, which leads to the IGI Airport.
What is even better, motorists will not have to pay any toll to use the new road, which is being constructed by the National Highways Authority of India.
The new road will begin on the expressway just before Radisson hotel and end near the expressway’s IGI Airport toll plaza.
At present, the traffic coming from Gurgaon and bound towards the airport have to take the road on the left side of the Mahipalpur crossing under the elevated expressway.
This then hits a roundabout, which is already a jostle of cars coming from Gurgaon, from the Ring Road and Mahipalpur. Once the slip road is ready, they will have a dedicated three lane corridor that will lead them to the Airport road without clashing with the south Delhi traffic. The slip road will segregate the traffic flow bound to the airport.
“The three lane slip road will be a great help to Gurgaon residents and ease traffic congestion,” said NHAI spokesman D.P. Majhi.
