The traffic department has proposed that the Authority construct a U-turn near Shopprix Mall to avoid traffic snarls near the Sector 60 underpass under construction.
Commuters travelling to NH 24 from Sector 61, Noida, along the road running between sectors 60 and 66, will soon be taking a new route. Currently, owing to construction work of an underpass in Sector 60, the road witnesses heavy traffic congestion.
The traffic department has proposed the Authority to construct a U-turn on the elevated road between sectors 60 and 61 to re-route traffic through this stretch instead. The Authority has complied with the suggestion and directed ITDC, the construction company developing the elevated road, to provide a U-turn near Shopprix Mall.
"The U-turn will be ready in a week's time," said PK Garg, project engineer of Noida Authority. "Once that is ready, vehicles can start taking the new route and traffic congestion near the underpass will ease."
