Dwarka e-way connector to get extra lanes
MCG will be converting the stretch connecting Daulatabad flyover and Dwarka expressway into a four-lane road to ease traffic congestion on the route. The move will bring relief to hundreds of residents living in sectors along the expressway and areas such as Rajinder Park and Daulatabad.
“This junction has always faced problems in terms of traffic congestion during peak hours. We have often received complaints regarding the traffic mess at this point and hence, we are making some changes in order to cut down on the snarls on the route,” a senior MCG official told TOI on Saturday.
According to officials, the tendering process for the work has started and an estimated Rs 4.5 crore has been sanctioned by Chandigarh for the project.
The work on the project is expected to be completed in the coming year. There is a one km stretch between Daulatabad flyover and Dwarka expressway. The widening of this stretch will be a big relief to people living in the new sectors along the expressway, including sectors 109, 110, 103 and 106, since in the absence of another approach road, they take this route.
“The area has a lot of societies and there are no proper roads and the approach from Daulatabad is almost always congested. The road widening project would bring some relief for the people living in the area,” said Sushil Kumar, a resident of Sector 109.
“The widening of the service lane and construction of the slip road will benefit residents in areas such as Rajinder Park, Vishnu Garden, Mahalakshmi Garden, Jai Vihar and Daulatabad Industrial Area,” said another MCG official.
