Basai Railway Over Bridge on Dwarka Expressway on Fast lane of Completion
The RoB which is coming up at the junction of sector 100 and 37-D at Basai village will fill a crucial connectivity gap on the 18-km-long Dwarka Expressway.
The much delayed Railway-over-Bridge (RoB) at Basai on Dwarka Expressway is expected to be completed in next two months. Major construction work including slab over the railway track has been completed and remaining work is going at fast pace.
The RoB which is coming up at the junction of sector 100 and 37-D at Basai village will fill a crucial connectivity gap on the 18-km-long Dwarka Expressway. The completion of the bridge is expected to improve the connectivity of the new sectors coming up in that area.
“Work on the construction of RoB is in progress. One lane is expected to be ready by January end and another lane will be ready by February,” said Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav adding that completion of RoB is crucial for completion of NPR.
Last year in September railway had allotted work order to a company for construction of a portion of RoB, passing over railway track. Out of the 1200 metre long RoB railway constructed 128 metre area, passing over the railway track, rest was constructed by Huda. For the construction of two-lane RoB it will cost around Rs 153 crore. “We are hopeful to complete the work on time,” said the Huda official.
Along with this, Huda is also going to connect the expressway with Pataudi and Basai roads and all nearby sectors in next few months. “It is likely to improve connectivity to at least 25 sectors on either side of the road,” said he. Most of the residential projects in these sectors are either complete or near completion.
On Wednesday more than 200 unauthorised structures were demolished in a massive anti-encroachment drive to clear the way for construction of master roads of sector 81-86. The construction of roads was held up due to encroachment on the land acquired by Huda for master roads of the sectors causing huge inconvenience to the residents of these new sectors.
Excited with the development, Rahul Singla, director, MAPSKO Group, said, “Move has come as a sigh of relief for the thousands of residents. The demolition of the encroachments and completion of RoB will lead to construction of a proper road which will eventually boost the connectivity of that area.” He said large number of people are already living in these areas and many more are expected to move in coming years, proper road will ensure people will not face problem in reaching their houses.
Vivek Singhal, president, Corporate Strategy of M3M, said, “The completion of the railway over bridge (RoB) was one of the key milestones towards completion of the 18 km Dwarka Expressway. This will help to ease the connectivity to various residential projects located along the e-way. This will further boost the development in the area and fill the crucial connectivity gap on the Northern Peripheral Road.”
