Widening Work On Faridabad Bypass Road Begins

TO REDUCE vehicular congestion on the busy DelhiMathura Road from Ballabgarh to the Badarpur border, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has started widening of the Bypass Road.

This will provide relief to the motorists from Sector 59 in Ballabgarh to Sector 37 near the Badarpur border They will not have to manoeuvre their vehicles through dense traffic on the National Highway-2 (NH-2). As the Delhi-Mathura Road bisects Faridabad in two parts, the intra-city transport impedes the movement of vehicles bound for long distance. Due to heavy intra-city vehicular movement, the road stretches near major intersections on NH-2 and remains clogged for long durations.

After the widening of the Bypass Road, the existing two lanes will pave the way for six lanes.

HUDA executive engineer R. K. Malik said that the widening work has begim at both the ends of the 26-km Bypass Road. The widening work has begun from Sector 59 and Sector 37, he said.

The earth on both sides of the existing Bypass Road has been dug up and it is being leyelled upto one km from the Sector 37 end. The same is the case at the other end of the road near Sector 59.

Earth has also been dug up for another km of the road near Indraprastha Colony along the Agra Canal. The western side is yet to be dug up for widening, as it requires shifting of utilities like electricity poles and transformers and felling of trees.

Malik said that the widening work is on in full swing and the project will be completed as per schedule. We are hopeful of making the Bypass Road with six lanes operational by June 2010, he said.

There are many slum clusters situated along the Bypass Road that might make things tough for HUDA. As for the encroachments along the Bypass Road, Malik said only a 2-km stretch has been occupied by illegal dwellers.

Why should we disturb them at this stage? When we are almost through with the widening of the 24-km road that is free from encroachment, we will evict the encroachers, he said.
