In order to reiterate residents' demand for an elevated road from Rajnigandha Chowk to Sector 57 intersection, officials of the Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) of Sectors 12, 22, 21-25, 55, 56 and Rajat Vihar society in 62 have decided to meet the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Noida Authority, Alok Tandon, next week.
Talking to City Spidey about their long-pending demand and citing the need for it, RWA chief of Rajat Vihar, Sukhdev Sharma said, “We often face heavy traffic jams on this stretch. It takes approximately an hour or so to cover it. An elevated road connecting both the intersections will reduce the total duration to just ten minutes.”
However, officials of the Noida Authority do not seem to be optimistic about the demand made by the people.
When we asked RK Mishra, senior project engineer in Noida Authority, the reason behind it, he replied, “There is no possibility of making an elevated road at Rajnigandha because an underpass is already built there. Moreover, I did not get any such order of making an elevated road from a higher officer.
On June 2017, the city’s first elevated road was opened for public. The 4.8-km six-lane elevated road from Vishwa Bharti School in Sector 28 to Sector 61 over the existing Master Plan-2 Road bypasses seven intersections, with exits and entries at Nithari, Sector 30, NTPC and Sector 24 to ensure seamless traffic flow.
