CAPITAL LINK - August opening for Dwarka Expressway stretch


Huda has said a 13.5km section of Dwarka Express way, from Kherki Daula to Palam Vihar, will become operational by August 22, after it settled land acquisition hurdles near Sector 100. This will fill a crucial connectivity gap on the 18km-long road. The project is still caught up in land acquisition hurdles in Chauma village and on the Delhi side.

A senior Huda official said the expressway will be connected with Pataudi and Basai roads and all nearby sectors by August. Work in these areas was stuck due to construction of buildings for two private firms and shifting of high-tension cables. The two companies have been allotted alternative plots. Work on shifting the high-tension cables will start soon, official said.

The opening of this stretch of the expressway will bring relief to thousands of homebuyers whose projects have been delayed because of the incomplete road. Huda officials said opening of this stretch is likely to improve connectivity to at least 25 sectors on either side of the road.

According to sources, roads in Sectors 83-84, 82-85, 81-86, 99-102, 102-102A, 120-103, 103-106, 109-112, 110A-111 are ready. After this stretch is opened, all these roads will be connected with the expressway. Most of the residential projects in these sectors are either complete or near completion.

“Recently, additional chief secretary of the department of town and country planning (DTCP), Raghvendra Rao, visited the expressway and directed Huda to make a portion of the road, from Kherki Daula to Palam Vihar, operational by August,“ the official said.
