Chandigarh, July 16 (IANS) The Haryana government will initiate new projects to improve connectivity between national capital Delhi and adjoining Gurugram city, a minister said on Monday.
Haryana Public Works Minister Narbir Singh said a plan to connect Vasant Kunj in Delhi with MG Road in Gurugram is being worked out, and the road would further be linked with the Delhi-Jaipur national highway.
“A U-turn would be constructed on Delhi-Jaipur Highway near Ambience Mall (Gurugram) to give relief to the residents living near the mall from traffic problem. The U-turn would be constructed at the cost about Rs 150 crore which would be equally borne by builders, DLF and Ambience (Mall),” the minister said in a statement here.
He said that the government is making efforts to improve connectivity between Delhi and Gurugram to remove traffic congestion.
“After opening of the KMP (Kundli-Manesar-Palwal) expressway on August 15, the traffic congestion would further be eased for the people living near Ambience Mall. A logistics hub would also be made with KMP Expressway so that all heavy vehicles carrying goods should not enter the (Gurugram) city,” he said.
Referring to the Dwarka Expressway project, he said that the expressway would be constructed at the cost of Rs 7,200 crore and its tenders have also been invited. The construction work would begin from next month, he said.
This would also improve the connectivity between Delhi and Gurugram and reduce the traffic volume, he added.
