Two new underpasses thrown open to reduce traffic woes in Ggn

Gurugram: Thousands of commuters who used to be stuck in massive traffic jams at Rajiv Chowk and Signature Tower turn will now heave a sigh of relief with the inauguration of two underpasses on Monday at these two major routes.
Accompanied by Minister of State for Roads, Transport and Shipping Mansukh Lal Mandaviya, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar threw open the underpasses. Senior Ahirwal leaders Rao Inderjeet Singh and Rao Narbir Singh also attended the event.
Khattar stated that the underpasses will end the connectivity crisis that plagued old and new Gurugram.
"The Haryana government is committed to provide world infrastructure in Gurugram. We are on our way to fulfilling that objective with the opening of these underpasses. Earlier, it used to be very difficult to commute from new areas of Gurugram to old Gurugram. Now this problem will end," said the CM.
He also talked about the upcoming development of the Delhi-Jaipur Highway along with Sohna road.
"We are on the verge of completing underpasses at Hero Chowk, which will likely be completed before its deadline in March. With regards to IFFCO Chowk, there is a challenge of relocating the petrol pump. Once that is done, it will too be completed.
"We have also decided that a flyover will be constructed at the Ambience Mall entry, to ease travel for commuters going to Cyber City and DLF. A flyover will also be constructed in Vatika Chowk of Sohna road," Khattar added.
Mandaviya said, "The project was sanctioned at Rs 1,004.67 crore and was completed in record time of 16 months against the scheduled 30 months. It not only solves current issues of traffic, but will handle the load of future traffic as well."
Back in July 2016, four hours of rainfall in Gurugram left commuters stranded for over twenty hours at National Highway-8.
A year later, in 2017, the Haryana government significantly improved the Delhi-Jaipur Highway, which is now used by over eight lakh commuters on a daily basis.
