NHAI had requested for transfer of land in January this year. The Lieutenant Governor has approved the transfer of land, giving priority to the development project. The best thing is that LG has also given this land on the condition that NHI will use the garbage waste and debris generated in Delhi for the construction of this highway and other roads along with paying it appropriately.
This highway is being built in three parts
This highway is being constructed under the Bharat Mala project of the Central Government. It is being built in three parts. First part from DND at Maharani Bagh to Jaitpur Pushta Road Junction on NH-148 NA section, second part from Jaitpur Pushta Road on NH-148 NA section to Sector 62/65 Road on Faridabad-Ballabhgarh Bypass and third part on Faridabad-Ballabhgarh Bypass. From Sector 62/65 Road to the junction of KMP Expressway on NH-148 NA section of Delhi-Vadodara Expressway.
Land was also approved for making power sub station
Taking another important step, the LG has also approved 4235 square meters of land to the Irrigation and Flood Control Department for the construction of a power sub-station at Nawada village of Uttam Nagar. The matter was pending since 2016 due to the apathetic attitude of the government.
The loop coming from Sarai Kale Khan side of Ashram flyover extension towards Lajpat Nagar was opened for vehicular movement from Wednesday. A Public Works Department (PWD) official said that some work is left on the loop. The work is getting delayed due to rain. The barricade has been removed from the under-construction road and vehicular movement has started. This will get rid of jam under the flyover.
Explain that the opening of the loop will give a lot of relief to the passengers. The Ashram flyover extension is an important route for people commuting to and from Noida and Ghaziabad. It was made to get rid of the jam, which was inaugurated on March 6. On the other hand, on May 27, the work of installing new high tension wires on the Ashram flyover extension was completed.
