Work on a bypass road that will link Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and National Highway (NH) 8, nearly 500 metres from the Kherki Daula toll plaza towards Manesar, will start soon, officials of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) said on Tuesday.

The three kilometre stretch is expected to bring relief to commuters and help avoid the toll and perennial traffic jams at Kherki Daula between Gurgaon and Manesar.

“We hope construction of the road will begin soon. Estimates have been sent to the headquarters in Chandigarh for approval. As soon as we get the nod, we will hand over the work to the developers concerned,” said Yashpal Yadav, Huda administrator.

The road is to connect Vatika Chowk on SPR near Rambir Ki Dhani at Sector 69/70 with NH-8 after Kherki Daula toll.

The Manesar-bound traffic on NH-8 would also be benefitted, apart from areas of Sohna and Golf Course Road.

SPR starts from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road near Ghata village in Sector 55 and ends at NH-8, nearly a kilometre from the Kherki Daula toll plaza towards Hero Honda Chowk.

Once the road is complete, commuters on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway will be able to take a left on the SPR and travel a kilometre and take a right again to reach NH-8.

Similarly, SPR commuters coming from the direction of sectors 55-75, Faridabad or Badshahpur and moving to Manesar and ahead will be able to take a left near Sector 75 and reach NH-8, some 500 metres away from the toll plaza.

For homebuyers who booked their flats and plots in sectors along SPR, the bypass road will bring a big relief.

Residents living in sectors and private colonies along Sohna Road who had to travel to NH-8 to cross the toll to reach Manesar will also benefit.

Neeraj Yadav, a resident of South City-2, said, “The new link road or bypass would be a great relief for us. We will be able to take this link to escape the traffic jams at Kherki Daula. We hope Huda completes the construction at earliest,” Yadav said.

The Kherki Daula toll plaza is a traffic bottleneck between Gurgaon and Manesar and the district administration had been looking for at an alternative route for commuters.

Rao Narbir, MLA Badshahpur, said, “This link road will expedite development in sectors 70-80 and it will ease the traffic in the area.”
