With an aim to ease the traffic congestion at one of the most crowded intersection in the city, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) is planning to begin redevelopment of the HUDA City Centre from today onwards.
The project will comprise the construction of an underpass, flyover, and Foot Over Bridge (FOB) at HUDA City Centre junction.
The underpass will be 710 meters long which will run between Signature Tower Road to Subhash Chowk Road. The flyover between IFFCO Chowk and HUDA City Centre will be 246 meters long. The cost of the project is estimated at around 43.07 crore INR and is expected to be completed within a year.
The GMDA will also construct FOBs at Signature Tower and IFFCO Chowk. The FOBs will have facilities such as escalators and elevators.
"The flyover and the underpass will ease the vehicular movement as it will allow the commuters to bypass the entry and exit points of the metro station. We will also develop exclusive picking, dropping and waiting points at the Huda City Centre Metro Station,” said Jitender Mittal, superintendent engineer for projects and infrastructure.
Meanwhile, the Gurgaon police have already issued a traffic advisory to alert the commuters which will be applicable from July 20.
The advisory stated that the road opposite to HUDA City Centre metro station and Fortis Hospital will remain closed during the construction period. The department has arranged other alternative routes for the commuters.
People traveling from Signature tower to Sushant Lok should take a left turn from the T-point of sector 29 and pass-through sector 29 then turn right at a traffic signal near the fire brigade station.
Similarly, people driving down from Kanhai to Subhash Chowk are advised to take a left turn after crossing the CNG pump and pass-through sector 44 by taking a left turn from Ramada traffic light. The vehicles driving from Subhash Chowk to Signature Tower will continue to use the existing slip road to reach their destination.
The advisory also said that all autos and cabs will have to use the demarcated new parking site near Max Hospital.
