The 4.8km elevated road in Noida is to be opened to the public on Wednesday. Noida authority chief executive officer (CEO) Amit Mohan Prasad conducted an inspection of the road on Tuesday evening.

The Rs500 crore project is the city’s first elevated road. It is expected to ease traffic congestion for thousands of motorists travelling from Ghaziabad and Greater Noida to South Delhi through Noida.

Uttar Pradesh industries minister Satish Mahana, Noida MLA Pankaj Singh and authority officials will throw open the road to public at an event to be held in a Sector 27 school on Wednesday.

“I conducted an inspection to ensure that the road is ready for public on time. We have finished the work and it will provide much-needed relief to thousands of motorists who travel to Delhi from Noida’s sectors 63, 64, 67, 62 and from Greater Noida,” said Prasad.

The elevated road will also ease traffic around many 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.

The 4.8km six-lane elevated road from Vishwa Bharti School in Sector 28 to Sector 61 over the existing Master Plan-2 Road bypasses seven intersections and has entry and exit points at Nithari, Sector 30, NTPC and Sector 24.

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

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