Infra projects in new Gurgaon sectors get a bigger push from DTCP



The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has directed Huda to speed up work on various ongoing projects in sectors 58-115 to improve infrastructure and civic amenities in New Gurgaon.

DTCP principal secretary Arun Gupta recently took stock of several ongoing projects in the city. Accompanied by senior officials of MCG, Huda and the district administration, Gupta began his recce from Delhi-Gurgaon border at Sirhaul near Ambience Mall, where an elevated U-turn is proposed to ensure people coming from Gurgaon can go to the mall and nearby areas without crossing the toll plaza.

Gupta directed Huda officials to cooperate with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), which is supposed to build the u-turn. Later in the day, he inspected the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Dwarka Expressway.

Also, Gupta asked officials to accelerate work on the railway over-bridge at Basai on Dwarka Expressway. The 1,200m-long over-bridge, coming up at the junction of sectors 100 and 37-D, will fill a crucial connectivity gap on the 18km Dwarka Expressway.

“One lane is expected to be ready soon while another lane will take a month or so to complete,” said Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav.

Yadav said the government had given its nod to move ahead with the work on Dwarka Expressway, instead of waiting for relief from Punjab and Haryana High Court. The High Court had stayed allotment of alternative plots to GPA, SPA holders, virtually slamming brakes on the project.
