A lot of companies are advertising for property citing nearness to Dwarka expressway corridor.

Shilas, Indiabulls Centrum Park and Ramprastha Edge Tower come to mind.

Does anybody have news on when this construction will start and when it is likely to finish? Has the contract been awarded and to whom?
Date of completion and start of operation will be vital news for evaluating the pricing of flats sold in this corridor.

Last I heard was that a few houses in Palam Vihar were slated for demolition for this expressway in May June 09 or thereabouts.

  • Kherki Daula toll likely to be shifted to Bilaspur Shubhra Pant| TNN | Mar 25, 2017, 02.57 AM IST GURUGRAM: The Haryana government is making a strong push to shift the expressway's toll plaza at Kherki Daula to the outskirts of Gurgaon.

    If this happens, it will make the entire stretch from Delhi to the Manesar industrial area toll-free, and become the second toll plaza to go after the 32-lane one at Sirhaul on the Gurgaon-Delhi border was scrapped in 2014. It will also benefit lakhs of people who are in the process of, or are moving into, Gurgaon's news sectors, around Dwarka expressway and Southern Peripheral Road.

    The removal of the toll plaza from Kherki Daula has been the subject of intense speculation for a while. Now, for the first time, senior officials in the Haryana government are suggesting they have managed to tie the loose ends and the toll plaza will go from Kherki Daula soon. It will, however, be shifted, not scrapped. The new location, officials said, will be near Panchgaon crossing in Bilaspur, around 16km further down NH-8 towards Jaipur. Land for it has already been identified, the officials added.

    For the shift to materialise, the Haryana government will need to pay the private firm that operates the expressway and the toll plaza Rs 2,000 crore, officials said. The state's industrial development agency, HSIIDC, said it is ready to pitch in with Rs 600 crore.

    Sudhir Rajpal, managing director of HSIIDC, said, "We are in discussions with chief secretary DS Dhesi. The state government is likely to buy back the toll plaza from the concessionaire. Out of Rs 2,000 crore, HSIIDC will bear Rs 600 crore, NHAI Rs 600 crore and the remaining Rs 800 crore will be financed by the IDFC (the banking consortium that financed construction of the expressway)." Sources said a meeting was held in Chandigarh on Friday where the government has given a nod to the buy-back option.

    But the NHAI said though it was aware of efforts to shift the toll plaza, discussions hadn't moved beyond that. "There is no formal proposal in this regard," said YS Malik, the NHAI chairman. "Earlier, too, on a couple of occasions, there has been talk of shifting this toll. Around two months ago, we had a meeting with the Haryana government in which we informed they are considering shifting the toll plaza. They should be prepared to share 50% of the financial implications that would arise. What this amount will be has still not been finalized. What works and what does not has still not been considered. If they are keen about this, they should submit a formal proposal."

    Rajpal, too, said the important part was to figure out the finances and once that was done, the removal should not take much time. Sources said the state government was working to a three-month timeline.

    Concessionaire Millennium City Expressway Private Limited (MCEPL) said it was aware of the development, but had not yet received any communication from the government. "We have heard that there was a meeting held between NHAI and the state government, and the proposal is being worked out, but we are yet to receive a written communication from the government," said S Raghuraman of MCEPL.

    Industry bodies were happy that their efforts were showing results. "We have been campaigning for the removal of the toll plaza for a long time," said Manmohan Gaind of Manesar Industrial Welfare Association.

    1. DEW taking up some shape
    2. Global city project
    3. New metro route
    4. Jaipur super expressway
    5. Toll shifting ahead
    6. Hero honda flyover

    If all this becomes reality, this is going to be a very good area to stay, till then, we anyways have this forum :)

It is 21 to 22. 5 meters on each side from the center of the NPR. However, center point of NPR, on this stretch is out by about 18 meters. Therefore, NPR is taking a curve here which is not there in the Zonal Plan. This issue had been taken up with the administrator and the executive engineer. The executive engineer wondered how there can be a curve in the road. He was clearly not aware of the curve. The administrator admits, in private, that it is a violation of the Zonal Plan but he will not do anything to correct the alignment as per the Zonal Plan. The administrator has clearly expressed his inability to correct the alignment. If one talks about the sincerity of HUDA, this is how serious HUDA is. The matter was then taken up with Rao Nirbir, PWD minister and also the MLA from New Palam Vihar. He has referred the matter officially to HUDA. The same has been referred to NHAI now. NHAI is currently looking into this issue. However, this matter ,very likely, will end up in the High Court within a fortnight. Watch out for this case as it will have major repercussions on the construction of NPR. Why and for what consideration the approved alignment has been changed on the ground is anybody's guess? However, once this matter ends in the High Court, it is very likely that a stay will be granted on the construction of NPR in this stretch as it is being built in violation of the Zonal Plan. The implication of the changed alignment will be that NPR, once completed, will have to be pass through the private unacquired lands and houses. No Court, worth its name, will allow this kind of violation of the Master Plan.


    I think that as the matter was brought to the notice of HUDA and NHAI, HUDA has removed the pillars that it had put previously indicating the alignment of the road, based on the changed alignment. Now, the pillars have been put as per the correct alignment i.e. alignment based on the land acquired. Even though the changed alignment currently is within the 150 meters of the acquired land, however, the alignment within those 150 meters is out by about 18 meters. Therefore, once the project land is taken over by NHAI, any construction already done by HUDA on either side of the road like sewer lines, water lines etc. will have to be removed as without removing that civil construction work, the alignment cannot be straightened.

    You haven't taken the green belt and service road into account. Even 18m out of alignment for the time being is not a problem within the whole stretch.

    1 & 6 are no longer an "if", and will be complete soon. Leave the flyovers on the DEW out for the time being.
    5 will take a bit longer, unless all parties agree to pay the compensation to the toll operator.
    3 will be happening soon as well
    2 & 4 are the only items that will take a few years more.

  • Now, Huda to hand over CPR project To NHAI Bagish Jha| TNN | Updated: Mar 30, 2017, 01.19 AM IST Gurgaon: The Central Peripheral Road (CPR) project will be handed over to National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), with Huda failing to construct the 3.2km stretch despite acquiring 102 acres of land for Rs 700 crore around six months ago.

    A senior NHAI official said the CPR will be constructed along with the remaining portion of the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), also known as Dwarka expressway. "We are in the process of preparing a detailed project report (DPR) for the construction of Dwarka expressway and we consider CPR as part of the expressway," project director of NHAI Ashok Sharma told TOI on Wednesday.

    The 27km-long Dwarka expressway — 18km in Gurgaon and 9km in Delhi — starts from Rangpuri in the national capital and ends at Kherki Daula village on NH-8 in Gurgaon. Out of the 18km stretch in Gurgaon, Huda has completed construction of 14.5km but the remaining portion is incomplete due to the delay in rehabilitation of oustees. On the other hand, NHAI has already started the land acquisition for the Delhi portion of Dwarka expressway.

    "Dwarka expressway has been declared as a national highway and we have to hand over the road to NHAI. CPR was proposed to connect NPR with the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), so we have no objection if NHAI construct this road. Huda is already facing funds crunch and it would be better if NHAI constructs and maintains CPR as well," said a senior state government official. "Huda will soon hand over the land acquired for the CPR project to NHAI," he added.

    The completion of CPR — which will connect Dwarka expressway with SPR and NH-8 — will significantly reduce the traffic load on the Gurgaon stretch of NH-8 and will ensure smooth flow of traffic from NH-8 to NPR, NPR to SPR and vice versa.

    The road will also reduce the traffic load on NH-8, particularly near Kherki Daula, as vehicles coming from the Delhi side through NPR will be able to go directly towards Faridabad or Sohna Road through SPR, avoiding the highway. At present, all vehicles that pass through Gurgaon or go anywhere in the city are forced to use NH-8, leading to traffic jams in most parts.
