4 bridges on Hindon to ease travel for Delhi, Gzb, Faridabad commuters
Aiming to improve road connectivity between Noida and Greater Noida, industrial development authorities of both the cities have decided to construct four new bridges. The authorities, who are expected to give final nod to the project in their next board meeting, have said that the bridges will come up on Hindon river.
As per the plan, the first one will come up between Noida’s sector 150 via Illahbas village near sector 86 to sector Chi-Phi up to 80-meter wide road, which joins the two cities. The second bridge will be constructed on the road between Greater Noida’s Knowledge Park-2 and 3 near the 75-meter wide road, which is proposed to connect to Faridabad and Noida’s 150 meter wide road. The third bridge will come up near LG roundabout in Greater Noida to Knowledge Park-3, which connects to a 75-meter wide road near Hindon canal and road between Noida’s sector 146 and 147.
A fourth bridge between Greater Noida’s sector 1 and Techzone-4 and Noida’s sectors 112 and 115 has already been constructed but has been proposed to be extended by service roads on either side of the bridge. This bridge also needs building of an approaching road from Noida side.
The officials have said that an estimated cost of Rs 55 crore has been fixed for each bridge which will be borne by both the authorities.
The entire work of construction will be carried out by Uttar Pradesh State Bridge Corporation Limited. The officials have claimed that the bridges will not enhance road connectivity between the twin-cities but will facilitate commuters of Delhi, Ghaziabad and Faridabad also.
“The bridges will decongest areas of Pari Chowk in Greater Noida, Greater Noida (west) area and the Noida-Greater Noida expressway. The bridge between LG roundabout and sectors 146 and 147 will decongest Pari chowk as traffic can bypass Pari Chowk, it will also provide commuters with an additional road between the two cities other than Noida-Greater Noida expressway.
The existing bridge between Greater Noida’s sector 1 and techzone-4 to Noida’s sectors 112 and 115 will help commuters who travel to Greater Noida (west) and Noida’s phase-III area,” said the official.
