The destiny of proposed underground U-turn on Nationwide Freeway close to Atmosphere Mall remains to be indefinite as a significant stakeholder within the undertaking — Atmosphere Group — has sought modifications to the design earlier than giving its consent to share the development value.
The proposal was mentioned and agreed upon final fortnight. Nevertheless, one other essential assembly on this regard is slated for Wednesday, wherein the executives of Atmosphere Group, DLF and officers of the Nationwide Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will talk about the design and finalise it.
Raj Singh Gehlot, chairman of Atmosphere Group, stated, “Now we have prompt the NHAI makes a minor change to the underpass design. Now we have an objection, principally, to the design of the ramp of the underpass on the facet of the Atmosphere Mall. Because the ramp is rising into the service street, it would trigger a bottleneck in entrance of the mall. That’s the reason we now have prompt NHAI to shift the ramp 150 metres behind, in direction of Rajokri flyover in order that autos rising from the underpass can use each the primary carriageway and the service street.”
“As an example, for a lot of commuters desirous to go to Manesar from Udyog Vihar, the primary carriageway can be higher than the service lane. However that is solely doable if the ramp is shifted from its present place. We hope this is not going to be a troublesome process for NHAI,” stated Gehlot.
Ashok Sharma, undertaking director (PD), NHAI Gurgaon, stated, “A gathering is proposed on this regard and we’ll attempt to resolve all contentions.”
Officers of the NHAI stated a Detailed Challenge Report (DPR) is prepared and building can begin anytime, after the consensus of stakeholders is taken within the assembly on Wednesday.
As per the current design, the ramp of the underground U-turn begins precisely from the purpose the place the Shankar Chowk flyover, in direction of Udyog Vihar, ends and it emerges almost 150 metres earlier than the doorway to Leela Resort on the opposite facet of Atmosphere Mall.
“Proposal of an underground U-turn crossover facility for residents dwelling in areas west of the expressway to succeed in Atmosphere Mall, Leela Resort, DLF and different areas close to 24 KM (beforehand often known as Sirhaul Toll) was a part of the unique plan of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway. A collection of conferences happened on this regard between the NHAI and the officers of the Haryana authorities since 2008 when the expressway got here in operation. We hope this turns into a actuality quickly as it’s powerful to cross the freeway from west to east,” stated Mahesh Mahela, a commuter.
