- GURGAON: The much-delayed Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) is likely to be operational in a month's time as the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) on Tuesday managed to clear the last obstacle in the way of the project. The completion of SPR will resolve the connectivity problem in new sectors 58-80 and expected to reduce the traffic load on the Gurgaon stretch of NH-8.
The 16km-long SPR, which will originate from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road near Ghata and meet NH-8 near Kherki Dhaula via Sohna Road, was held up over rehabilitation of 16 oustees at Rambir Ki Dhani. On Tuesday, Huda conducted a draw of lots and allotted alternative plots to the oustees of SPR in Sector 49, paving the way for completion of the important infrastructure project of the city.CommentQuote4Flag

- yesterday I was there, the work is already on, like fixing of road side cemented grills, covering of rain water drain, though at slow pace, but I suppose will get pace once the obstacles removed. The authority is in more hurry to complete SPR than people living there. Its blessing in disguise ( 28 July episode ).CommentQuote0Flag

- Huda to complete master roads in sectors 81-95 by December
TNN | Aug 26, 2016, 12.50 AM IST
Gurgaon: Huda is eyeing to fast-track the completion of master roads of new sectors along Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) to improve intra-city connectivity. This, after it recently cleared all obstacles in the way of the SPR and NPR, including land acquisition.
Once completed, these roads will improve connectivity of the new sectors with NH-8 and rest of the city, benefiting a large number of residential and commercial projects coming up there, and the people who have invested in these projects.
"We're hoping to complete the construction of master roads in sectors 81-95 by year-end. All litigation involving land acquisition, which had held up the development, have been resolved. There were over 20 land acquisition cases related to master roads in sectors 81-95, most of which have been resolved now," said Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav. Oustees will be given alternate plots by Huda in a lucky draw, scheduled for August 31.
Alongside this, work on master and sectors roads in other new sectors is also in progress. Earlier in July, Huda had awarded compensation of around Rs 2,546 crore for acquisition of around 300 acres in Naurangpur, Sikohpur, Kherki Daula and Begampur Khatola villages for construction of roads in sectors 75-80.
Huda has already managed to clear obstacles in the way of SPR, and has claimed that by mid-September, it can start work on the 16km-long road, which will originate from Gurgaon-Faridabad road near Ghata and meet NH-8 near Kherki Dhaula, via Sohna road.
NPR, also known as Dwarka Expressway, is also moving towards completion. Of the 560 oustees from New Palam Vihar, Kherki Daula and Tekchand Nagar, who had held up work on the road, Huda allotted alternate plots to 110 on July 31. Another 79 oustees were allotted plots on August 24. The remaining 374 oustees will be allotted alternate plots in the next draw, on August 29.
"Once SPR, NPR and the master roads in new Huda sectors are complete, we'll be able to complete all other ongoing projects, which have been delayed by several years. Then we can focus on planning new infrastructure projects for the city's development," said a senior government official.
The Huda administrator also inspected the internal sector 83-84 road on Thursday and assured residents it will be complete by December. "Work is held up at two stretches. We've resolved some issues. The remaining ones should be resolved in the coming months," said Yadav.
Sunil Revoo, a resident of Sector 84 said completion of the 2km-long, 60-metre-wide master road connecting the locality with NH-8, will benefit over a dozen residential projects housing thousands of people. "Except for two 200m stretches, the rest of the road is complete. Huda said legal issues regarding one stretch near NH-8 has been resolved, but is pending on the other patch, which has a portion of cemetery land on it," said Revoo, adding the administrator has assured the road will become motorable in a month and complete by December.

- This will help the Tata and CHD projects. But the bulk of the land bank in that area (and the incompleted projects) are with Unitech who unfortunately are in no position to leverage the new road even if completed.
Unitech will kill this area's coming of age!ACommentQuote0Flag
