Centre pitches Rs 1,000cr to decongest Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway

To cope with chronic congestion that holds up daily commutes to Gurgaon and causes heavy jams in the metropolis, the highways ministry permitted investment of Rs 1,000 crore to free up three main junctions–IFFCO, Signature, and Rajiv Chowk–at the Delhi-Gurgaon throughway.

Around 80% of the traffic is inbound to Gurgaon instead of heading in the direction of Rajasthan.



Officers stated the notion for underpasses and cloverleaves addressed the specific wishes of every junction. “The scheme also looks after roads without delay connected to those congestion factors,” a ministry supply stated. Those junctions see a large pile-up of cars at some stage in height hours, and the spill overextends onto the main parkway, regularly blockading visitors at the high-speed corridor. Ministry officials stated these measures had been lengthy past due considering that the street infrastructure is inadequate to disperse a growing site visitors load effectively.

At IFFCO Chowk, two clover leaves might be built across the parkway for the seamless traffic movement on MG avenue. “In view that building underpass in this stretch isn’t feasible on the crossing, cloverleaves were authorized. At some stage in a top hour, nearly 800 motors come from Delhi toward old Gurgaon, and nearly 2,150 automobiles coming from Mehrauli aspect head in Dhaula Kuan’s direction. We’ve provisioned wider roads to cater to the growing site visitors,” a ministry reliable said. Moreover, one underpass may be built for traffic from Huda city Centre, another major choke factor, toward Mehrauli near the Gurgaon significant Mall.
