The Government is planning to build expressways to ease the traffic congestion in Delhi.

“Plans are on the anvil for Rs 5,000 crore 16-lane road connecting Delhi with Ghaziabad and Noida on the outskirts in a major bid to ease traffic congestion in the capital,” said Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari.

The project work of Delhi-Meerut expressway will begin in three months.

“We are making a 16-lane highway on NH 24 from near ITO till Dasna. This will also ease traffic jams in Delhi and it will pass through the Akshardham temple. The work will start on this project in 3 months,” Gadkari told PTI in an interview.

The estimate cost of the project should be around Rs. 4,000 to Rs 5,000 crore, he added.

The Minister said that the government is also planning to build an Eastern Peripheral Expressway to provide signal-free connectivity between the national capital and neighboring towns.

Gadkari added, “File has gone from the Finance Ministry to the Cabinet and I guess in a month’s time, we will start work on the project (The Eastern Bypass Project). This will ease traffic jams in the city.”

The project is likely to be completed by July 2018 and the estimate cost of the project would be around Rs. 6,000 crore.

Following a Supreme Court Verdict, the draft of building these two expressways  were made  in the year 2006.

Eastern Peripheral Expressway envisages to provide signal-free connectivity between Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gautam Budh Nagar (Greater Noida) and Palwal while the Western Expressway will connect Kundli to Palwal via Manesar in Haryana.
