Fourth link between Delhi, Ggn will bring relief to commuters

CRUCIAL E-WAY Urban agency hands over possession of disputed plots, decks cleared for construction work

GURGAON: The Punjab and Haryana high court order vacating the stay on the construction of the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) connecting Dwarka with Gurgaon has brought relief for homebuyers, developers, the Haryana government and the affected property owners who faced eviction and demolition.

For commuters traveling between Delhi and Gurgaon, the expressway will prove to be the fourth major link between the two cities after NH-8 (Gurgaon-Delhi expressway), MG Road and Kapashera Road. The NPR is likely to take some traffic load off these roads. The Haryana Urban Development Agency (HUDA) and the Delhi Development Agency (DDA) now need to do their bit in completing the road on their respective sides and connect Dwarka with Gurgaon.

Currently, the NPR planned by HUDA is 150 meters wide and is yet to be completed. The DDA, too, is yet to begin work on widening the existing 20-meter road in Bijwasan to 90 meters as per its master plan. Besides, the Delhi side of the road is still 850 meters away from touching the NPR and DDA is yet to construct that patch to connect the road with the expressway.

Akhilesh Bakshi, a senior executive with an MNC in Gurgaon who has invested in an upscale gated community in Sector 104, said that the building was almost ready for possession but there was no access to it. “I have paid all installments to the builder but because of the litigation on that patch of the NPR, I was worried about the access to my prospective apartment. I am aware that the court has settled the matter on Wednesday,” he added. The NPR all along its 18km route between Sector 83 and 113 has about 100 residential and commercial projects coming up. Navin Raheja, chairman, National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), said the court judgment was a relief for thousands of people who had invested their saving in buying homes along the NPR.
