Elevated roads OK’d to unclog Delhi-Noida links

Saturday, 15 December 2018 | Sapna Singh | NEW DELHI

To ease traffic congestion between Delhi and Noida, Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) and Noida have approved the stretches of two major proposals, first elevated corridor and its linkages with existing Delhi-Noida Link Road falling within the boundary of National Capital Territory of Delhi and second  Yamuna River Kalindi Kunj of  Noida authority falling within the boundary of National Capital Territory (NCT).  A decision to this regard was taken in the 58th governing body meeting on Friday.

In the first project, which is part of elevated corridor from Chilla Regulator (Delhi ) to MP-3 road (Noida) along Shahdara Drain, six — Lane Elevated Corridor over Shahdara Darin between Mayur Vihar flyover (near Chilla Regulator) and Mahamaya flyover in Noida   will decongest existing Mayur Vihar-Noida link road which leads to Noida-Greater Noida expressway and Kalindi Kunj.

According to UTTIPEC officials, this road will provide alternative route along right bank of Shadara drain running parallel to existing Mayur Vihar -Noida Road up to Mahamaya flyover in Noida. “Traffic coming from Delhi and going towards Noida may deviate from Mayur Vihar Extension flyover to go to Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and KalindiKunj uninterrupted,” quoted UTTIPEC statement.  

With this, traffic coming from Noida Expressway and Kalindi Kunj area may take a loop from Expressway to use this corridor to reach right up to the end of existing Mayur Vihar flyover uninterrupted. Importantly, the Noida roads in this stretch of about 5.50 Km shall also be given connectivity through loops. 

In the second proposal- construction of second bridge on Yamuna river near Kalindi Kunj/ Traffic Circulation Plan on Sarita Vihar side up to proposed Kalindi By-pass in which the stretch Yamuna river Kalindi Kunj of Noida authority falling within the boundary of National Capital Territory (NCT) only approved by the UTTIPEC officials under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal. 

 As per the minutes of meeting, Noida authority has proposed six lane road passing through Shahadra Drain and  Yamuna river connected with approaching roads under pass from Mahamaya flyover to Kalindi Kunj intersection.

“A loop has been also proposed to pass the traffic coming from Noida to Jaitpur village via underpass towards Sarita Vihar. After Completion of this project, traffic coming from Noida to Delhi will use this new 6-lane road and traffic moving from Delhi to Noida will use existing 4-lane road,” quoted  UTTIPEC.

This may be noted, in future to integrate this proposal with the proposed kalindi  kunj bye-pass project of Public Works Department (PWD), provision for 6 lane signal free elevated road have been kept for vehicular traffic movement from Noida to Faridabad and from Faridabad to Noida.

A rotary has also been proposed near Jaitpur village for traffic movement from Jaitpur village to Metro station (Kalindi Kunj) and Noida /Sarita Vihar.
