In an attempt to provide smooth access to commuters travelling between Noida and Delhi and to improve connectivity for areas along the Noida-Greater Noida expressway, the Noida Authority has planned a new underpass. The proposed underpass will be constructed to connect sectors 44 and 126. Having been vetted by IIT-Delhi, the underpass will be constructed using pushback technology so that there is least disruption of traffic movement. Tenders for the project have been initiated on Wednesday and the contractor for the project will be finalized on April 26. The project is expected to reduce the distance to Delhi by about 7 kms. Currently commuters travelling from sectors 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 96, 97, 98, 99, etc need to take a detour and travel up to sector 105. Even though there is an underpass between sectors 97 and 127, since it is very narrow, only light motor vehicles and two-wheelers can use it. School buses and bigger vehicles cannot use the facility and have to take a longer route to travel to Delhi via Okhla barrage. This leads to traffic congestion along the e-way as well as on the Mahamaya flyover. More>>
