But i am sure there are lot of development also happening .just wanted to create a thread where we have single point of information on development projects being undertaken for gurgaon city by government and other agencies including but not limited to :

    1. creation / upgradation of new roads.
    2. metro rail develpments.
    3. water supply projects / enhancements/ sanctioned
    4. sewarage projects.
    5. landscaping / beautification projects .

    Haryana Urban Development Authority mulls to set up dedicated water cell in Gurgaon

    , Tuesday, Jun 5, 2012 15:47:33 PM IST

    GURGAON: The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is planning to establish a dedicated water cell here in its attempts to deal with water shortage issues and also to intensify its conservation campaign.
    The proposed cell will be formed within HUDA's existing organizational body, and will include nearly eight of its senior engineers, who will be shifted full-time to sort out the water troubles of the city.
    Praveen Kumar, administrator, HUDA, “These officials will only work on water-related projects round the year. They will be keeping an eye on the daily supply, distribution infrastructure, and other water conservation projects taken up by HUDA recently, like setting up more rain water harvesting units.”
    Gurgaon witnessed one of the worst water crises in recent years. The daily water supply lessened to 15 per cent of the usual volume in several parts of the city, and the dry-run continued for weeks. The officials at HUDA believe that the new water cell will improve the situation.
    Moreover, HUDA has also announced to double-line the water supply system that is routed through the Basai treatment plant to all residential and commercial areas in Gurgaon.

      Huda takes steps to end Gurgaon’s water crisis

      With the water crisis worsening in Gurgaon, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) has finally woken up to the need of ensuring proper water supply in all areas.

      Huda administrator Preveen Kumar held a meeting on June 3 with officials of Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) and other agencies and directed officials to ensure proper water supply.
      It was decided that gensets should be installed at water works and other water establishments as soon as possible. Kumar also told officials that gensets should be taken on a hire basis and installed till the department purchases its own gensets.
      The old pumps at Mundakhera pump house will be replaced at the earliest to improve water supply, Kumar said. He said the construction of water works at S-block DLF city should be completed by July 10.
      Kumar directed officials to identify areas where there is no supply of water and make necessary arrangements to ensure supply in these areas. He also directed officials to install rainwater harvesting mechanisms ahead of the monsoon.
      “We will constitute a team who will inspect water supply and check wastage of water. They will also make sure drinking water is not used for construction purposes. Directions shall be issued to all contractors of construction sites to use the treated water from the Sewerage Treatment Plants of Huda,” Kumar said.
      Usage of drinking water for gardening purposes will also be prohibited, Kumar said.
      An alarm system should be installed at all boosting stations, water works and water tanks to control the wastage and overflowing of water from tanks, he said.Huda has decided to issue challans to those caught wasting water in DLF area. An Huda official said that 100 cusec water was being supplied by the Irrigation department to Gurgaon. Keeping in view the shortage of water, Huda has already asked Irrigation department for an additional 43 cusec of water.

        HUDA officials pulled up for delay in water treatment plant

        GURGAON: State financial commissioner S S Dhillon on Thursday pulled up HUDA officials for the delay in completion of the first phase of Chandu Budhera water treatment plant.

        According to original deadline, the plant should have been operational in December last year. In a meeting held in Gurgaon, Dhillon sought completion report of the plant and was miffed after learning that the plant was still not ready. Dhillon has asked local HUDA officials to complete the pending work within a month.

        HUDA administrator, Praveen Kumar, will carry out regular inspections of the plant and send a weekly report to Dhillon. The financial commissioner has sought action against the private firm which was given contract for the plant's construction. As per contract, the firm can be fined of Rs 3 crore for the delay. Once operational, the plant, with daily capacity of 20 million gallon water, is expected to boost water supply in Gurgaon.

          basai plant to get power backup

          GURGAON: HUDA has drawn up plans to bolster power backup at boosting stations and at the Basai water treatment plant.
          HUDA administrator Praveen Kumar said that the decision to install DG sets and additional transformers had been taken to ensure better water supply to the city. According to the plan, a DG set (500kV) will be installed at the Sector 16 station and an additional transformer will be used as stand-by for the pump set. "The additional transformer and DG set will ensure that the pumping station functions to its optimum capacity irrespective of the power supply," said Kumar.

          The Sector 16 pumping station is crucial as it supplies water to a number of colonies in nearby sectors. The authority has also decided to install six clear water pumps at the Sector 51 boosting station. The project,which is worth Rs 6.50 crore, has been sent to the chief administrator for approval.
          At the Basai water treatment plant,which supplies water to the entire city, HUDA has decided to install an additional transformer. "The new transformer will help in case there is a power cut," said another HUDA official.
          On revamping the existing water supply network HUDA has decided to spend Rs 6 crore for reworking the water pipe lines from Rajiv Chowk to the Sector 16 boosting station. "The strategy is two-pronged: To revamp the existing water supply lines and to overhaul the existing water plant and boosting stations in the city," said Kumar

            huda bans private swiming pool in gurgaon

            The ongoing water crisis has been haunting Gurgaon residents ever since the onset of summers but it has also taken a toll on swimming enthusiasts. Due to the shortage of water, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) has slapped a ban on the operation of private swimming pools in the city.

            The affected swimming pools are the ones being run in the condominiums as well as in individual houses. There are nearly 150 such pools in the city. The public swimming pools being run in hotels and clubs, however, have been spared of the embargo.
            On the other hand, some of the condominiums and gated communities, which are known for 100% power back up and round-the-clock water supply, have allotted timings to their inmates when water will be supplied.
            From the last one month, residents have been protesting due to ‘no’ or ‘little’ water supply.
            The residents of DLF City, Sushant Lok and various Huda sectors have been complaining about inadequate water supply.
            “We’ve already closed the swimming pool. Posters have been pasted in the area to spread the message of water conservation. This will help our colony get better water supply,” said Rajeev Lamba, RWA president, Essel Tower.
            With the water crisis worsening, residents are urging the authorities to take measures to check wastage of water, besides shutting down swimming pools.
            To address the issue, Huda recently announced to improve supply in the Gurgaon water canal, which supplies water from the western Yamuna canal to Gurgaon.
            “We have issued a directive to all group housing societies and individuals operating swimming pools on their premises to close them down until the water supply improves or monsoon hits the region. We will organise surprise inspections and defaulters will be penalised. However, public swimming pools being run in hotels and clubs have been exempted from the embargo,” said Huda administrator Praveen Kumar.
            At Davinder Vihar in Sector 56, the management has been providing water only for four hours daily for the last 10 days. Earlier, residents were supplied water for 24 hours.
            Similarly, swimming pools at Hewo apartment in Essel Tower have also been shut down.

              Gurgaon traffic police identifies 94 road safety issues

              GURGAON: The traffic police have updated the list of issues pertaining to road safety with as many as 94 issues that have to be resolved by public and private agencies. The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has the highest number of issues — 31 — that need to be resolved by it, followed by the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) with 27 issues.

              Highest on the National Highway Authority of India's ( NHAI) list of pending works is the construction of lay-bys for buses on NH-8 for which an action taken report has also been sought by the traffic police. Also brought to the notice of the agency is the fact that the U-turns on both sides of Rajiv Chowk need to be widened and that heavy vehicles are one of the major causes of accidents and traffic jams on NH-8.

              HUDA has been asked to repair the Jharsa road in Sector 15, Dhanwapur road in Sector 4, and the slip roads near Artemis Hospital and Genpact Chowk , among others. The Bhagat Singh Chowk-Sheetla Mata road, Bhagat Singh Chowk-Sector 4/5 road and Basai Chowk road need to be completed.

              The traffic police has asked the Haryana State Roads and Bridges Development Corporation Limited ( HSRDC) to construct a central verge on the Pataudi-Tawroo and Gurgaon-Jhajjar (via Sultanpur) state highways. They have also been asked to remove speed breakers, paint zebra crossings at every intersection, traffic signal and in front of every school and hospital in their respective jurisdictions.

              The MCG too has been told to repair roads in its areas. In order to decongest the old city, the corporation has also been instructed to also expedite work on constructing foot overbridges (FOBs) at Sheetla Mata road and Bajghera crossing.

                Re : Updates and news on development projects undertaken for Gurgaon city


                GURGAON: With monsoon around the corner, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) seems to have planned the pre-monsoon works well before time to ensure the city does not get inundated, as it does even after a little rainfall every year.
                Unlike the previous years, HUDA is using a new technology to repair the city roads, and the work is expected to be over before the monsoon. The authority's officials claimed that serious efforts were being made to repair the roads before the onset of the monsoon.

                According to HUDA administrator Praveen Kumar, several parts of Gurgaon including Sohna road and Hero Honda Chowk used to get flooded every time it rained. However, the Badshahpur drain has been cleaned and the problem resolved for the time-being.
                "The work is on at a fast pace and would be completed before the onset of the monsoon. The road work, planned in parts, would be completed soon," said Kumar.
                HUDA also has plans to install more than 500 water-harvesting units in the next 21 days, spending almost Rs 5 crore. The officials have identified the sites and the units will be installed at various locations.
                "The desilting of drains is already going on in different areas. I would also ensure that the drainage systems are cleaned and the sewage lines are clear," added Kumar.
                On the other hand, some of the private developers are way ahead of schedule and have already completed the desilting of storm-water drains and cleaning of manholes. The privately-developed areas are still apprehensive because their efforts will go waste if the main trunk lines are not cleaned on time. The private developers are responsible for cleaning the internal pipelines but the master drains are cleaned by HUDA. Private colonies have already completed the desilting of drains within the colony and the work for cleaning the rain-water harvesting pits is going, and is expected to be completed in a few weeks.
                Baljeet Singh, a senior DLF estate management official, said the deadlines are set in accordance with the monsoon. He said that the pre-monsoon works started in April. "If in any situation monsoon arrives early, we will increase the work force and complete the work well in time. Moreover, HUDA must get the main drain along the NH8 cleaned, without which cleaning only the internal drains makes no sense," said Singh.
