The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has instructed the Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) to address the issues which are causing delay in construction of the master road and internal roads in the sectors 58 and 115 at Gurgaon.

As per a report in TOI, there are many reasons which are causing delay in the construction of the master road. They are inability to get permission from the forest department, litigations, difficulty in removing encroachments and changes in alignment.

Senior GMDA officials informed that they are working on creating a list of issues which are causing delay in the construction of the roads.

An official on condition of anonymity told that there are instances where some plot owners have been delaying their relocation even after they have been given alternative plots. In some cases, the HSVP is delaying the demarcation.

However, the GMDA is said to have prepared the plans for the construction of these roads. Around 4-5 lakhs people living in more than 100 residential societies near these roads will be benefitted after the construction.

In the present scenario, the residents are forced to use the revenue roads and other un-metaled roads for connectivity.

The GMDA is scheduled to hold a meeting with HSVP on Thursday to discuss the hindrances in the construction of the roads.

In April last year, the GMDA had announced that they will work towards providing master roads in these sectors. They had formed four groups of sectors for this purpose - sectors 58-67, 68-80, 81-97 and 98-115.
