Kalindi-Faridabad bypass gets LG's nod

 After 10 years’ delay, the project of a bypass link road from Kalindi Kunj to Faridabad has got a green signal from Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.

A senior Delhi government official said during a meeting of Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) few days back, the LG has given his nod to the project.

A consultant company has been asked to prepare and submit the details of expenditure of this project, which will be sent to the Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC) for it to initiate the process of floating a tender for construction of this road. 

According to the plan, the proposed bypass road will ascend from Sarai Kale Khan area as a single pillar elevated road till Badarpur area on the banks of river Yamuna.

 The road will descend at Badarpur and then another flyover is proposed to cross a small canal in the area. After entering in the territory of Haryana government, the road will be joined in the 28 km stretch of the project which is already constructed by the neighbouring state.

“The total length of this bypass road will be 42 km. Delhi has to construct 14 km road as rest of the stretch of 28 km has already been constructed by the Haryana government. The length of the elevated road will be six km,” said a senior Delhi government official.

The project was prepared in year 2004 but many residential areas were coming in the way of planned route. Many people raised objection as densely populated areas like Jamia Nagar were falling right in the middle of the route and it required a series of demolition.

To avoid any new bridge on the river Yamuna, which was objected by many environment activists, the officials have planned to construct a flyover parallel to the river.

The bypass will ease traffic on NH-2 (Delhi-Mathura road).
