3 years on, 3 key Udyog Vihar roads are still being repaired – Haryana
Posted on Posted By - Admin
3 years on, 3 key Udyog Vihar roads are still being repaired – Gurgaon. In reply to an RTI filed by city-based activist Aseem Takyar, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) said the work on these three roads has been delayed due to several reasons. The widening of Shankar Road has been delayed due to delay in shifting of 11kV lines by DHBVN and encroachments in Dundahera village.
Gurgaon: Work on repair and widening of three major roads in the industrial hub of Udyog Vihar hasn’t been completed yet, three years after the project was proposed in 2018.
While the work on the widening of Shankar Road connecting Shankar Chowk to Old Delhi Road is 71 % complete, the widening of Anath Road, which links the Airtel building to Old Delhi Road, has just recently begun. Meanwhile, work on Shyam Road connecting Shyam Chowk to Old Delhi has not even started yet.
In reply to an RTI filed by city-based activist Aseem Takyar, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) said the work on these three roads has been delayed due to several reasons. The widening of Shankar Road has been delayed due to delay in shifting of 11kV lines by DHBVN and encroachments in Dundahera village.
“Work on the road connecting Shyam Chowk to Old Delhi Road has not yet begun due to delay in shifting of utilities by the discom, felling of trees by forest department and issues over proposed metro alignment,” stated a copy of the RTI response accessed by TOI. Work on the third stretch too has been delayed largely due to shifting of the utilities, it said.
GMDA chief engineer MR Sharma could not be reached for a comment on the matter. The revamp of Shankar Road had been first proposed in the summer of 2018. In November, GMDA had begun the tendering process with a deadline of six months for completion of the work. It was also supposed to be among the first few roads in the city to get a footpath suited for the physically-challenged.
While GMDA is spending Rs 7 crore on widening Shankar Road, Rs 20 crore will be spent on the redevelopment of Shyam Road and another Rs 8 crore on Anath Road.
Officials said all three roads will be three-way lanes with a width of 9.9 metres on both sides of the central verge, along with footpaths and cycling tracks on both sides. The width of the cycling tracks and footpaths will be 2.5 metres.
“There are a lot of labourers employed in these areas who walk or cycle to work. Hence, there will be a special emphasis on footpaths and cycling tracks to ensure their safety,” a GMDA official said.
Industries based in the area have often raised this issue of heavy traffic and congestion. Responding to the complaints of heavy traffic on these stretches, GMDA had chalked out a road widening plan and a traffic management plan along with the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation. Years later, however, industries and employees are still waiting for better roads in the industrial hub. Source:TOI
