Agencies razed 20 structures on Dwarka Expressway in 2 months

Gurugram: In order to expedite the construction of Dwarka Expressway, the public agencies have expedited the work in getting over with the barriers. In two months there have been 20 structures that have been brought down.

The public official also mentioned that construction is expected to begin as soon as all the litigations regarding the expressway have concluded. Following the announcement, there has been a hectic process that has been followed for allotment of the plots and razing all the structures.

For long the residents have been demanding for the completion of 28 kilometres of road that will lead to the growth of social infrastructure in the area.

However, legal hurdles in land acquisition and inadequate compensation provided to villagers have resulted in the project prolonging since 2007. Even though it has been said that the Dwarka Expressway will be completed in 18 months various problems have resulted in the delays. In order to put pressure on the government, certain residents have taken an online route to put forth the difficulties faced by them.

"In Dwarka Expressway we are living in a situation where the social infrastructure is non-existent. There is no light, no water, security, sewerage, roads and hospitals. Assurances have been given to the residents for long now we expect that the action will be done on the ground," says Sushil Kumar.

After a long struggle, ninety thousand families residing in Dwarka expressway got a reprieve after Nitin Gadkari provided assurance that all the legal hurdles were over and the construction on the Gurugram side will begin soon.

As NHAI is expected to take over the reins of developing Dwarka expressway, residents are also demanding that the Kherki Dhaul toll should be removed and better streamline connectivity should be developed for Dwarka Expressway.
