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.

      Wonderful project. But prior to that Delhi must fix its air quality problem - otherwise it cannot expect to succeed as the premier international destination for conventions.

    Don't know which statement is more incredulous - one not knowing anything about what is happening and still dishing out statements of no work vs the other claiming that some association is working to make DEW complete. Both are so way off to what is actually happening.

    The truth lies somewhere inbetween. The company I am doing some work for at present has bid for certain contracts under NHAI with very strict completion timelines. The transport minister is apparently breathing down their neck to ensure that this gets completed quickly, same as the other flyovers/underpasses on NH8 (some of which have been completed in just about half the time stipulated in the original tenders). The eastern peripheral expressway might get completed by mid Jan and the western peripheral expressway thereafter. Looks like they want to showcase this as having been able to decongest Delhi.

    The entire expressway has been redesigned and elevated sections will be coming up along with the existing road running at the bottom.

    TNN | Nov 12, 2017, 07:15 IST GURUGRAM: Residents of societies along the Dwarka Expressway met MCGcommissioner V Umashankar on Saturday to express concern about the lack of public transport in the region that is home to 70,000 people and has thousands of flats being built in sectors along the speedway.

    Members of the Dwarka Expressway Association, a group of local residents, discussed many issues related to the sector road development for several residential projects along the expressway and the fact that it is not clear whether developers or government agencies are rresponsible for these roads.

    "We requested to publish the concerned agency's name and details on the public domain so that homebuyers or RWAs can follow up with the agency. The commissioner accepted the fact that there is some confusion and, in the next 2-3 months, he will call joint meetings with all concerned agencies to publish sector-wise charts allocating responsibility among builders and government authorities," said Pradip Rahi, general secretary of the Dwarka Expressway Association.

    Among other issues the residents discussed was the handover of land to the National Highways Authority of India from the Haryana border to the Basai foot overbridge, payment of compensation to New Palam Vihar and Kherki Dhaula oustees and repair of the existing Dwarka expressway carriageway.

    "The MCG commissioner has assured us that connectivity of Dwarka Expressway with NH 8 is their top priority and it will be connected through the Central Peripheral Road," said Sayyad Sameer, another resident of the area and an executive member of the association.

    Umashankar, when approached for a comment, declined to speak on the issues and said he would get back on the developments along the Dwarka Expressway later.


    https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/61611421.cms



    2-3 months to just call for joint meetings. And with the multiplicity of builders in a particular area, it will be quite a task to see how they allocate the responsibilities between the different builders in the same area, and how it is enforced.
    Wonder why one cannot just go to the HUDA or MCG office and see the maps of the areas to identify whose responsibility it is for the roads - MCG/HUDA/Builder.

    And the MCG Commissioner declined to give an official comment, says it all. Govt officials will not disclose the way they will resolve the issues beforehand, else there will be chaos and litigation from the people likely to be affected. They might just appease the people by giving assurances. Just thinking what would have happened if Modi had announced the DeMo beforehand as a solution to wipe out the black money!!

    The CPR will take about 2 yrs more to come up. Big interchange at the NH8 junction will be constructed. That too if the land is handed over soon, which HUDA can't as of now as it is not clear yet.

    The connectivity to NH8 might come up from the Dwarka side first, and not the Manesar side.

    The fact remains that d eway is not complete as of date .

    I am hearing that it would be compelte in next three months for last 5 years - however the land acquisition is still pending - the cases are not yet disposed off, the oustees have not yet shifted.

    Don't talk about those expressways eastern and western they benefit naharpar more than gurVillage

    so even if government works overtime the ground reality is there will be no construction till march and that too government gets all the land which is not going to happen soon.



    All the hype with d eway projects are now seeing real color the prices are down and if the time correction of five years taken into account they are down by not less than 50%

    I think we are going to see some bankrupt builders in d eway projects as well

      Punjab and Haryana high court to deliver order on compensation for Huda oustees today

      The Punjab and Haryana high court will deliver on Thursday the decision on the status of allotment to oustees whose land was acquired by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) in the past decade for developing infrastructure. The court will decide whether these oustees, over 1,000 of them, will get alternative plots or land.

      The decision will fast track several infrastructure projects that are stuck because of pending litigation.

      “The decision in this regard is to come anytime tomorrow (Thursday). The hearing has been completed by the larger bench of Punjab and Haryana high court regarding oustees of the state and bench has perhaps given many directions. I cannot comment on anything concrete,” Anil Grover, additional advocate general (Haryana), said.

      The urban development authority had acquired land in Gurgaon for development of the northern and southern peripheral roads (NPR-SPR), connecting peripheral road (CPR) and other roads in sectors 81-115.

      While some oustees had original registry of land, others had general or special power of attorney (GPA-SPA) against which they claimed compensation.

      “The oustees moved the high court against Huda saying the department was not considering GPA or SPA. Among those who had registry of land, many were not satisfied with Huda’s compensation policy and thus several cases landed up in the court. We hope for a positive order from the high court. However, many other similar cases are still pending in the court,” high court lawyer Sandeep Sharma said.

      In September 2017, the high court merged all cases filed by the oustees whose land was acquired by the Huda.

      Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav said, “The litigation related to oustees has held up several projects for years, and we wish it is resolved soon so the NPR, CPR, SPR and other road projects, which are delayed, can be completed.”

      The hearing is complete, but unless we see the decision, it would be improper to comment, Yadav said.

      One of the oustees Rishi Raj Rana of New Palam Vihar said, “If our grievances are not addressed in the decision (by the high court), we will then challenge the order in the Supreme Court.”

    That's why I said that you have no idea sitting so far away and commenting.
    I went across many places last weekend in Gurgaon to see what is going on where for some investments.
    GCX - work slowed down considerably
    SPR - work ongoing
    NPR - Work ongoing

    You talk of oustees not shifting - go and see the truth, many have started construction on the alternate plots given to them, including those of NPR. Not just 2-3 as someone claimed here earlier, but saw many houses being constructed there. Some of them have already reached the 2nd floor as well.

    Btw the land required does not seem much, only 2-3 small sections remain, not even a km in Gurgaon. Rest is all complete already. Also saw a portion inside NPV which is not even there on Google maps.

    Some bankrupt builders are going to be there in every city, but more so in Faridabad and Noida/G Noida, than Gurgaon. Oh I forgot, the builders that came from those areas to Gurgaon are mainly whose projects are way behind schedule and might be going bankrupt - ERA, Earth, Assotech, Supertech, ATS.

    So before you speak without having any idea as to what is happening, you should go and check the ground reality.

      Hi
      Any updates on court decision


  • Tweak City Centre-Dwarka Metro line alignment: GMDA
    Joel Joseph| TNN | Dec 5, 2017, 06:14 IST63GURUGRAM: Gurgaon Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has suggested to Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) that the route linking Huda City Centre with Dwarka Sector 21 via Gurgaon railway station should be tweaked a little.


    This followed a feasibility report submitted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to HMRTC a couple of months ago, which had two routes (shorter and longer). Both routes are to start at the existing Huda City Center Metro station (DMRC Yellow Line).


    While the shorter route will cross NH-8 at Rajiv Chowk before terminating at Gurgaon railway station, the longer route will cross NH-8 at Hero Honda Chowk, cover large parts of Old Gurgaon, proceed to Gurgaon railway station and from there on to Palam Vihar via Sector 111 and Bijwasan railway station, before terminating in Dwarka Sector 21 Metro station (DMRC Blue and Airport Express lines).


    The reason given for the tweak is that it will "enable right of way (RoW) control to reside with GMDA, instead of the Railways" and avoid crossing the railway line. While in principle, GMDA has preferred the longer route, it has suggested that beyond Palam Vihar and Sector 23, the route should follow the Palam Vihar-Bijwasan road, and thereafter to Dwarka Sector 21.


    According to GMDA officials, this will ensure timely completion of the project.


    "If the alignment were to go from Sector 23 to Sector 111, the Metro line will have to cross the railway line. We'll then have to approach Railways for RoW, which can be time consuming, delaying the project. The idea is to start and finish the project as soon as possible, to provide relief to lakhs of commuters who depend on private vehicles, buses and auto-rickshaws for their commute," said an official.


    "Also, if the route is tweaked, the journey time between these two places will also be reduced, as the route is shorter. We've also suggested that areas like Sector 111, Bijwasan railway station and Barthal can later be provided access through a separate Metro route along Dwarka expressway (NPR)," he said.


    In October, GMDA had asked residents for suggestions, to which 84% had said the longer route should be implemented.

    Some also suggested the route should go via Udyog Vihar and Iffco Chowk, which have many offices and industrial units.

    HMRTC will take the final decision on the route, after which the tender process will begin, said officials. Land for a depot for either route has been identified near Dhankot Railway station.

    Land issues and other operational and maintenance modalities of the longer route will have to be resolved by Haryana and Delhi governments, as it will cover territory and thus come under the jurisdiction of both governments.

      The document states"

      "And further, in pursuance of sub-section (2) of section 3D of the said Act, the Central Government hereby declares that on publication of this notification in the Official Gazette, the land specified in the said Schedule shall vest absolutely in the Central Government, free from all encumbrances."

      This makes it pretty clear that the land vests with the Government. Also the Government has acquired a large number of private land some of which could be farmhouses too - as seen from the schedule.

    What a pathetic alignment...When planners already fixed metro corridor at the central verge of Dwarka Expressway why such sudden changes are happening. I don't think Master plan 2021/31 is worng. Masterplanning requried lot of planing, projections & analysis before deciding landuse adn connectivities.

    This pathetic aligment will be very expensive in terms of construciton and land acquisition ; above all these locations are already within 15 minutes of feeder serive reach to Dwarka expressway alignment. These so called new HMRTC officials seems smoking something. They are planning for internal roads connectivities (which are already there, which need proper traffic management schemes) instead of Metro aligemnt.

      Was this obvious 6 years ago when I said that d eway is not going to happen soon ?
      I still remember you guys making fun of me and creating hype that d eway is going to happen in next xx days - now you guys take a different route to blaming -
      If you people have listened to me about the course that was needed to be taken to fix the situation you would have been happier but no it was one person whom you guys wanted to point out for all the mishappening and guess what who is having the last laugh ?

      The builders, babus, bankers and brokers are still continuing with their dirty game of sucking money from hapless buyers and you guys still want to demean me ?

    New Delhi, Dec 11 (PTI) To decongest Delhi, NHAI will expedite development work on Urban Extension Road (UER), a senior ministry official said today.



    In a high-level inter-ministerial meeting, chaired by Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and participated by Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal, it was decided that extra cost of UER 11, phase 1 will be shared by NHAI and DDA on a 50:50 basis, the ministry official said.



    Master Plan for Delhi has proposed Urban Extension Road - II (UER) which connects National Highway 1, 10 and 8. This road was proposed to reduce traffic from existing Ring Road and Outer Ring Road.



    Besides, it was decided in the meeting that the work on Urban Extension Road will be expedited, the official said.



    It was also decided that DDA will hand over encumbrance free land.



    "At Junction of UER-II/Dwarka Expressway with NH 8, major interchange has been proposed. The proposed interchange would provide signal free movement in all directions," the official said.



    For this interchange, 14.4 hectares of private land is proposed to be acquired, the official said adding, 11.4 hectare of Airport Authority of India (AAI) land is required.



    The meeting also discussed requirement of 24 hectares of greenfield land for Dwarka Expressway. PTI NAM BAL .t

    Tweak City Centre-Dwarka Metro line alignment: GMDA
    Joel Joseph| TNN | Dec 5, 2017, 06:14 IST63GURUGRAM: Gurgaon Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has suggested to Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) that the route linking Huda City Centre with Dwarka Sector 21 via Gurgaon railway station should be tweaked a little.


    This followed a feasibility report submitted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to HMRTC a couple of months ago, which had two routes (shorter and longer). Both routes are to start at the existing Huda City Center Metro station (DMRC Yellow Line).


    While the shorter route will cross NH-8 at Rajiv Chowk before terminating at Gurgaon railway station, the longer route will cross NH-8 at Hero Honda Chowk, cover large parts of Old Gurgaon, proceed to Gurgaon railway station and from there on to Palam Vihar via Sector 111 and Bijwasan railway station, before terminating in Dwarka Sector 21 Metro station (DMRC Blue and Airport Express lines).


    The reason given for the tweak is that it will "enable right of way (RoW) control to reside with GMDA, instead of the Railways" and avoid crossing the railway line. While in principle, GMDA has preferred the longer route, it has suggested that beyond Palam Vihar and Sector 23, the route should follow the Palam Vihar-Bijwasan road, and thereafter to Dwarka Sector 21.


    According to GMDA officials, this will ensure timely completion of the project.


    "If the alignment were to go from Sector 23 to Sector 111, the Metro line will have to cross the railway line. We'll then have to approach Railways for RoW, which can be time consuming, delaying the project. The idea is to start and finish the project as soon as possible, to provide relief to lakhs of commuters who depend on private vehicles, buses and auto-rickshaws for their commute," said an official.


    "Also, if the route is tweaked, the journey time between these two places will also be reduced, as the route is shorter. We've also suggested that areas like Sector 111, Bijwasan railway station and Barthal can later be provided access through a separate Metro route along Dwarka expressway (NPR)," he said.


    In October, GMDA had asked residents for suggestions, to which 84% had said the longer route should be implemented.

    Some also suggested the route should go via Udyog Vihar and Iffco Chowk, which have many offices and industrial units.

    HMRTC will take the final decision on the route, after which the tender process will begin, said officials. Land for a depot for either route has been identified near Dhankot Railway station.

    Land issues and other operational and maintenance modalities of the longer route will have to be resolved by Haryana and Delhi governments, as it will cover territory and thus come under the jurisdiction of both governments.
    What a pathetic alignment...When planners already fixed metro corridor at the central verge of Dwarka Expressway why such sudden changes are happening. I don't think Master plan 2021/31 is worng. Masterplanning requried lot of planing, projections & analysis before deciding landuse adn connectivities.

    This pathetic aligment will be very expensive in terms of construciton and land acquisition ; above all these locations are already within 15 minutes of feeder serive reach to Dwarka expressway alignment. These so called new HMRTC officials seems smoking something. They are planning for internal roads connectivities (which are already there, which need proper traffic management schemes) instead of Metro aligemnt.




    abhi tak samajh nahi aaya ? all those land belongs to the babus and politicians and hence they will get huge sum of money.

    Land is only thing by which government can be held for ransom ;) enjoy 2030 metro ridership at d eway - ha ha ha ah aha ha
