It’s an experiment but if it succeeds motorists would enjoy a signal free ride on the service lanes between Iffco Chowk and Delhi border toll plaza.
At present, long traffic jams are the norm on the service lanes of Gurgaon expressway, especially at Shankar Chowk near Delhi-border toll plaza.
The Gurgaon police, in consultation with other agencies, has decided to make the drive signal-free.
Motorists would be able to enter Udyog Vihar and exit from DLF Cybercity without halting at the most busy Shankar Chowk crossing.
A decision to this effect was taken in a late-evening all-department meeting head by the Gurgaon police commissioner S.S. Deswal on Thursday. The meeting was attended by the officials of Municipal corporation, HUDA, Gurgaon administration, NHAI, DLF and DSC Limited.
Deswal said all three traffic signals from Shankar Chowk on the Gurgaon Expressway, where lakhs of vehicles converge from DLF Cybercity, industrial area Udyog Vihar, gurgaon, Jaipur and Delhi, would be removed as an experiment. “With this, the 4.5 km stretch between Iffco Chowk and Delhi-border toll plaza will possibly become seamless and possibly there would be no jams even during peak hours,” he said, adding that the department might revert to the present signal situation, if new plan doesn't work.
