The land required for constructing the Connecting Peripheral Road (CPR) is expected to be acquired soon by the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) as officials complete land inspection recently.
The CPR is the last leg of the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), also known as the Dwarka Expressway, in Gurgaon to be connected with the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) on the national highway near Kherki Daula toll plaza. A cloverleaf will also be constructed on the national highway to connect CPR and NPR.
Both the SPR and the NPR are considered future lifeline of the city in terms of intra-city connectivity between East and West Gurgaon and intercity connectivity between Delhi, Jaipur, Faridabad, Rewari and Pataudi.
A team of administrative officials, led by sub divisional magistrate of North Gurgaon Bharat Bhushan Gogia inspected the land required for the CPR in Sectors 82-88. The team met the land owners and verified the land records.
The same has been communicated to the National Highways Authority of India (Nhai).
Nearly 13 hectare land is required for constructing the CPR and the cloverleaf.
GMDA chief executive officer (CEO) V Umashankar said, “The land needed for the CPR will be acquired soon. Our officials have completed the site inspection and we will soon publish advertisement in newspapers. We want the CPR to be opened for city’s traffic management at the earliest.”
“This is a big move. Thousands of people, who bought homes near the Dwarka Expressway, have been waiting for the completion of NPR for years,” said Yashesh Yadav, a homebuyer and active member of the Dwarka expressway welfare association.
The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) had transferred the NPR and the CPR to the NHAI in October 2016 after constructing 16.5 km as land litigation had delayed the projects inordinately.
In August 2017, the Punjab and Haryana high court quashed acquisition of 75 acres of land by Huda stating that the land was acquired in 2014 according to the old Act.
