Northern Peripheral Road is likely to be connected to the national highway near the toll and would help effect free flow of traffic.
The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) requested National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) on May 15 to remove the boundary wall built three years ago near Kherki Daula toll plaza to disconnect Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) with Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.
The construction on the left-out portion between NPR and the expressway will begin only after the removal of this boundary wall. Out of 18 km stretch on NPR, construction of 15 km stretch is almost complete.
NPR leads to Sector 115, Dwarka, on one hand and connects with the expressway near Kherki Daula toll on the other.
Yashpal Yadav, HUDA administrator, said, “Around 600 metres of segment between NPR and NH8 near Kherki Daula toll was caught up in a court case. Now, that the case has been resolved, we need to connect NPR with the national highway near the toll so that people coming from Manesar can take the route to reach sectors 9 and 10, New Palam Vihar, and other areas in Gurgaon.”
“Since the NHAI has agreed to remove the wall, we are waiting for the action. The linking would help in effecting free flow of traffic at Kherki Daula toll,” added the administrator.
However, AK Sharma, project director NHAI, said that though the matter was discussed, he would not comment at this point of time.
