  • Re : NPR - Northern Peripheral Road, Dwarka Expressway, Gurgaon Updates

    The snarl-ravaged Dwarka-Gurgaon commuter can honk with joy.

    The Dwarka Expressway, also called the Northern Peripheral Expressway, that will benefit thousands of daily commuters between Dwarka in west Delhi and Gurgaon in Haryana will be ready for use by October this year.

    If there is a speedometer to measure the pace of construction, work is going on at more than 100kmph, one instance of overspeeding no one is complaining about. "It will be ready by October 2012," A.K. Maggu, executive engineer of the project, said.

    The eight-lane expressway, being developed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), will link Dwarka, cut through Gurgaon and join the National Highway (NH)-8. India Bulls is laying the autobahn.

    It will be 18km long, starting from Dwarka, going past Palam Vihar and planned special economic zones in Gurgaon before joining the NH-8 near Kherki Dhaula.

    The Dwarka Expressway's biggest draw is it will serve as an alternative to the congested Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, cutting travel time between Dwarka and Gurgaon by half.

    Now, commuters from Dwarka and other parts of Delhi drive to Gurgaon on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, built to slice travel time from the country's capital from more than 60 minutes to 20.

    But that has not been the case. Long queues of vehicles extend on both sides of a toll plaza on the Delhi-Gurgaon border during peak hours. The tailbacks stretch for kilometres. More than 8,000 vehicles cross the Delhi-Gurgaon border every hour.

    Gurgaon is a major satellite city of Delhi and is home to lakhs of people who work in the national capital. Gurgaon also hosts hundreds of MNC offices employing people living in Dwarka or the country's capital. For all these workers, time is money and they cannot afford to sit in snarls.


    The eight-lane Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway will be 18km long and 75m wide.
    They believe the Dwarka Expressway will end their daily struggle in bottlenecks, gridlocks and stop-and-crawl traffic on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, not to mention the man-hours lost on the road annually.
    "On most days I lose half-anhour at the toll plaza. I hope to reach office and home early when the new road opens," daily commuter Madhu Sharma said.

    At 150m, the Dwarka Expressway will be one of India's widest roads. The Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway is 75m wide.

    Driving from the Dwarka Expressway to Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport and the Metro rail station in Dwarka's Sector-22 will take only a few minutes. The 18-hole golf course proposed in Dwarka by the Delhi Development Authority too is within putting distance of the road.

    There are two speed bumps in the way of the road's construction. But those are minor and won't stop traffic from flowing on the speedway at the end of the year, the developer claimed.

    The speed bumps are in the nature of litigation. More than 14km of the road passes through land that is free of litigation. The rest four km sit on land under litigation in bits and pieces.

    "Barely 26 acres are under litigation. There is a high court order to compensate the land owners with alternate plots and this is being done," an official associated with the project said.

    The land under litigation is in New Palam Vihar and sectors 100, 102 and 103, among others.

    Besides the Dwarka Expressway, commuters would also be travelling between Dwarka and Gurgaon by the Metro by 2016.

    The proposed line, an extension of the Airport Express network, will connect Dwarka's Sector-21 with Iffco Chowk in Gurgaon.

    Sector-21 and Iffco Chowk already have Metro services. Sector-21 is served by both the blue line and the Airport Express line. Iffco Chowk is served by the Jehangirpuri-HUDA City centre line. But the Sector-21 and Iffco Chowk stations are not connected directly now.

    The new service will cover the distance between Dwarka and Gurgaon in 14 minutes.

    Commuting apart, the Dwarka Expressway, touching new residential colonies and a commercial corridor, has already begun fuelling a realty boom.

            Hi All DEW future residents...

            Hero Hondo Chowk flyover issue is the biggest problem I think as for DEW we now are clear what will happen. I think we all should unite with that group who are fighting for flyover at heroi honda chowk.

            Yesterday I was coming from Kherki Dhaula toll towards hero honda chowk on NH*. There was traffic jam for 30 minutes as traffic is manuaaly handlend at that chowk.

            This means when DEW is fully operationa and we come out at NH8 from DEW and move towards Delhi.....WE WILL BE STUCK.

            Hope you all got my point dear.

            Regards
            Sanjeev

              A few pics from the other side of railway crossing. Parked the car at Ramprastha and walked my way through to the other side.

              There are a couple of projects which are going well.. Pareena express 99 for one..

              ATS has a plot in this 99A sector. Tried to capture it in one of the pics.. The site is around 500 to 700 meter from the railway line (on the other side of Ramprastha)..

                Rudder,

                Any update on Assotech Blith? Did you see any movement in that project as well? How far it is from the railway track?

                  Quite Close. 300-400 Mtrs.

                    Hi Rudder, went the same place.

                    A big waterline and sewage work project has started along the DEW in this place. Very massive.

                    Clearly road to RP will have to go over the sewer work only after it is completed, only katcha rastha for now. Major sewer covering clearly underway.

                    The Pataudi road through Gadoli Gaon for about half to one kilometer is quite narrow. On the other side, it is again wide and the crossing at ground level between DEW and Pataudi road is now operational. Trucks were running on the DEW. But going all around to enter RP through DEway seems a little long. A short approach road from Pataudi road would be better.

                    DEW is quite wide and has a green belt in the middle and another green belt on outer side, after which a sector road will start. RP has made a small sample of the service road, making it easy to understand the actual width of the DEW.

                    RP has communicated completion dates of MArch 2014 for View and Atrium, MAy 2014 for early towers of Edge. It is I suppose barely possible to do this. Lift installation of Edge started, 12 already installed. Atrium lifts on site, to be installed soon. View lifts in August.

                    EWS flats for the township are coming up. This usually indicates that the application for completion certificate is planned, since without it you dont get completion.

                    Photos

                    1. Pataudi DEW crossing. Truck is going to NH8. Bus is along the Pataudi Road. Our car is towards RP.

                    2. Edge tower in middle and BPTP in the distance on left. A major sewage covering project has been started along DEW which has concreting rods visible in the foreground. It is on both sides of the DEW. Along it, black water pipes are also being laid.

                    3. Green belt on outer side of the Sewage line (rods visible behind). Quite wide

                    4. 12 m service road will be outer to the green belt. RP has made a short stretch as a sample, leveling for this service road will be done after the digging for the sewage line is completed.

                      Thanks for the update Venky. I also noticed the sewer work at the dew entry to RP city.

                      I wanted to see the progress at the other side of the railway line. The other side can be reached through the small phatak where dew ends today.

                      There is a small sector road patch here about 700 metere on which pareena express 99 is situated (in pics 4 and 5 of the post). The said patch of sector road ends into a small road (I think sikhavala basai road) which has a couple of other projects like pareena coban and ats.
