Vasundhara flyover to decongest trans-Hindon area
In order to decongest the trans-Hindon area, especially between Vasundhara and Mohan Nagar Link Road, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) on Sunday started the construction of Vasundhara flyover.
“In order to ensure smooth vehicular movement in and around Vashundhara area, the need of the hour is to construct a flyover. If things go well, we will complete the work in a year,” said GDA Vice-Chairman (V-C) Vijay Kumar Yadav, while inaugurating the project.
With inauguration of the project, work on pile-testing has also begun. “Pile-testing is being conducted at the intersection to assess the flyover’s foundation. This will go on for five to six days. The construction is being executed by UP State Bridge Corporation and the GDA together. The length of the proposed flyover is 3.8 kilometres,” said the GDA V-C.
As per estimates, Rs 45 to 50 crore is likely to be spent on construction of the flyover. Officials said bulk of the expense is likely to be met from the Infrastructure Development Fund of Ghaziabad.
According to the flyover design, vehicles coming from Vaishali will be able to take the flyover from near the Vaishali Metro station (near Bikanerwala, and Country Inn and Suites) and get off the flyover on Madan Mohan Malviya Marg, at the foot overbridge near Sangam auto showroom.
“Vehicles coming from Site-4 Sahibabad industrial area and from CISF Link Road will go under the flyover. However, if they wish to go straight down to the intersection, they will not be able to do so and will have to take a U-turn after the flyover as the intersection will be made signal-free,” Gupta said.
According to officials, construction of the flyover will help ease traffic at the intersection.
