PWD revives decade old Kalindi Kunj ByPass Project

Postby dheerajjain » Tue Dec 21, 2010 9:48 am

PWD revives decade old Kalindi Kunj ByPass Project which seeks to provide good connectivity between Delhi and Neharpar Sectors of Faridabad. This project is caught up in various state govt. issues, legal and environmental hurdles. I recieved at least 5 RTI replies 3 months back for the same mentioning that project can't be carried forward.

But, now PWD seems optimisic of finding a solution and seems to have again revived the project. We have to support PWD also so that it can overcome various hurdles and objections to this project.

Kalindi Bypass project put on fast track
Express News Service Posted online: Tue Dec 21 2010, 04:26 hrs

New Delhi : Govt hopes to complete project by 2014; will create alternative Faridabad-Delhi route

After being on paper for nearly a decade, the Kalindi Bypass road project has finally been put on the fast-track, with the government hoping to start construction in around 16 months.

Twelve companies have applied to offer consultancy services to prepare a detailed technical and financial feasibility report for the project, which is expected to reduce travel time between Delhi and Faridabad.

“We are hopeful that the consultant would be appointed within a fortnight. We want to start actual construction by June 2012,” said A K Sinha, principal chief engineer of the Public Works Department (PWD), the main construction agency.

Once the consultants submit their report, PWD officials say they plan to select a contractor who will take up the project on a built-operate-transfer basis.

“We are aiming to get the bypass ready by June 2014 if we get all clearances by June 2012. Contractors don’t take more than two years to build such a project,” said a top Public Works Department official.

According to the government, the bypass will create an alternative route for commuters travelling from Delhi to Faridabad apart from the congested Mathura Road, and would cut travel time.

PWD officials said the consultants will not only study the alignment for the road, but also explore ways to integrate it with the DND Flyway and the Ring Road.

“We are thinking of eventually connecting the bypass with the Barapullah elevated road and the Salimgarh Fort bypass, so that it can be a parallel road to the existing Ring Road,” a PWD engineer said.

The 27-km long Kalindi Bypass, beginning at Kalindi Colony near the Yamuna and going upto Palwal in Haryana along the western banks of the Yamuna, was first proposed by the Delhi government in 2002.

The government had sanctioned nearly Rs 100 crore to construct the 14-km stretch that falls in Delhi. The remaining 13-km stretch in Haryana has already been constructed.

Construction of the Delhi stretch ran into rough weather when the Uttar Pradesh government refused to part with some of the land it owned that was required for construction.

In 2006, the Delhi High Court prohibited any construction within 300 metres of the edge of the Yamuna’s bank, but later ruled that the road could come up 120 metres from the riverbank.

I don't believe 'Indian Express' indulges in fabrication of news. I can believe fabrication from 'Hindustan Times' or 'Times of India' but not from 'Indian Express'. This news is reflection of optimism shown by PWD, Delhi and we should support them. PWD, Delhi is the only Govt. agency till date who has replied to my RTI application via e-mail
