  • Status of FNG


    There a lot of confusion on IREF about FNG. I'm creating this thread to keep IREF readers on the track to current status & progress on FNG corridor.

    In Year 2003-04 NCR Planning board had approved construction of two major expressway around Delhi as regional development plan 2021 for NCR. These two are called.....

    1- Western Peripheral Expressway - It is to link Kundli, Manesar to Plawal hence it's called KMP. The total length of this expressway is 88 kms., out of which 74 kms. passes through Delhi and 14 kms. through Haryana, thereby linking NH-1 at Kundli to NH-2 at Faridabad via NH-10 & NH-8. The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways indicated to construct this Expressway, provided the Right Of Way of 150 meters is acquired and given free of cost for construction. The total cost of the project was estimated at Rs.1735 crores

    2- Eastern Peripheral Expressway - Locally called KGP as it is to connect Kundli, Gaziabad to Palwal. It consisting of two corridors :

    A. Faridabad-NOIDA-Ghaziabad (FNG) :
    B. Ghaziabad-Kundli (GK) corridors :

    Now WEP have had a nice takeoff which evrybody knows, whereas EPE had always been in trouble and work could never be awarded till yet.

    NHAI had started bidding processes for 3 times. First two times no one but Relience Infra bidded for it as NHAI rules don't allow work to be awarded to single bidde,r bidding processes had to be reinitiated.

    However in third bidding process which got closed on 27th Jan 2011, a total of 24 companies have submitted their bids.
    It is said that the bids will be evaluated in next one month.

    As for the confusion wheather FNG will pass through faridabad or not please go through the link ....

    I will keep on updating this thread for further news regarding EPE.
