Officials of the National Highway Authority of India (Nhai) and the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) on Thursday discussed cloverleaf and CPR (connecting peripheral road) construction plan -- which will bring respite to commuters in the city.
The meeting is viewed as a major development in terms of pending Dwarka Expressway or Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) connecting Gurgaon and Delhi.
CPR is the last leg of the NPR which is now being executed by the Nhai. Aimed at bringing permanent relief for commuters between Faridabad, Gurgaon, Manesar and Pataudi, the Nhai will also construct cloverleaf on NH-8 to connect CPR and SPR (southern peripheral road).
Udeep Singh, project director (PD) Nhai Dwarka, said, “We need land for the CPR leg and in that regard we held a discussion with the Huda, which has to transfer it to Nhai after proper marking by erecting pillars.”
“The detailed project is prepared for Dwarka Expressway and Cloverleaf. And soon after approval from theb headquarter, the first phase work for CPR and Cloverleaf construction would begin,” he added.
The Huda had written to Nhai repeatedly to construct cloverleaf and CPR at earliest, officials said.
“Cloverleaf is urgently required for betterment of traffic. It will bring new life to the traffic network by connecting SPR and NPR. We will put proper marking along the land for CPR that Huda has already acquired and transfer to Nhai to expedite constructions at earliest,” said Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav.
During his visit on April 15, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had asked the Nhai and Huda officials to work in coordination to decongest the traffic at Hero Honda Chowk, Rajiv Chowk, Signature Tower and Iffco Chowk.
“It is a big development and we wish NPR and SPR is connected. It will bring relief to commuters,” said Gaurav Prakash, member Dwarka Expressway Welfare Association.
Sudhir Garg, resident Centrum Park, Sector 103, said, “We have been waiting for years for NPR to become operational. It is sad that NPR is still stuck in litigations and land acquisition is still incomplete. However, ever since Nhai has undertaken the NPR from Huda in October 2016, we believe it will see light of the day soon.”
