The 4.8km elevated road from Vishwa Bharti School in Sector 27 to Sector 61 in Noida was inaugurated and opened to the public on Wednesday at an event held at a private school in Sector 27.

Industries minister Satish Mahana, Union minister of state for art and culture Mahesh Sharma and Suresh Rana, the minister of state (independent), sugarcane, sugar mills and industrial development, Noida MLA Pankaj Singh and several top Noida authority officials were present at the event.

The Rs500 crore project is the city’s first elevated road. It is expected to ease traffic congestion and provide a smooth commute for thousands of motorists who travel from Ghaziabad and Greater Noida to South Delhi through Noida every day.

“The UP government is committed to development in the state. We will continue to fulfil the aspirations of the public. Noida’s elevated road will prove beneficial to thousands of motorists,” said Mahana.

The elevated road will also ease traffic around residential areas in sectors 33, 23, 25, 27, 26, 28, 29 and 31, among others. Work on the road had started on October 14, 2014.

However, an exit that will allow motorists to reach Nithari village is yet to be completed.

“This exit ramp will be ready in the next 10-12 days as the contractor is working at this point. The main carriageway is ready for use. I have also instructed the staff to get the road painted by Wednesday morning,” a Noida authority official said.
