14-lane, 7500 Crore, Delhi-Meerut Expressway Launched By PM Modi
All India | Edited by Jatin Gandhi | Updated: December 31, 2015 13:22 IST
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched a s. 7500 Crore project to widen the Delhi-Meerut highway and replace it with an expressway to decongest Delhi. He described it as the “road to freedom from pollution.”
The road connecting Meerut to Delhi is the busiest highway in the region, Union minister Nitin Gadkari said minutes before the prime minister spoke. The expressway will do away with 31 traffic signals on the road and make it “signal free”, reducing travel time between Meerut and Delhi from two and a half hours to around 40 minutes, he said.
“This highway will show the path to tackle pollution,” PM Modi said. Delhi is the most polluted capital in the world.
“In the changing times, pace will not slacken. It will only get faster,” he said. Mr Modi said his government will take forward the programmes started by the Atal Vajpayee government. “Vajpayeeji had two projects – the Golden quadrilateral connecting four corners of the country and he started a programme to give connectivity to villages,” he said referring to the Prime Minister Rural Roads Programme.

Agra-Lucknow Expressway to be operational by Oct 2016
Rs 15,000 cr project would span 10 districts in Uttar Pradesh
Virendra Singh Rawat | <news:geo_locations style=”box-sizing: border-box;”>Lucknow May 20, 2015 Last Updated at 17:54 IST
Uttar Pradesh government is pushing for its flagship Agra-Lucknow Expressway to be operational by October 2016.
The proposed 302 km expressway is estimated to cost nearly Rs 15,000 crore. The contract for the mega project has already been awarded to private developers after dividing it into five packages and the work is on.
It is touted to be the longest access-controlled expressway in India to be funded entirely from the state coffers. It spans 10 districts, which would be intersected by it, namely Agra, Firozabad, Mainpuri, Etawah, Auraiya, Kannauj, Kanpur City, Unnao, Hardoi and Lucknow.
It is a pet project of chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is keenly pursuing it along with other flagship projects also underway such as IT City, Lucknow and Lucknow Metro Rail.
In a review meeting here today, UP chief secretary Alok Ranjan directed officials that the package-wise review be held on monthly basis, so that the expressway meets its project timelines and is operational by October 31, 2016.
The state has planned to develop agricultural ‘mandis’ along the expressway to spur the economy by providing faster transport to agricultural produce, handicrafts, small industries etc. This region is known for high dairy, potato, fruits and food grain production.
Meanwhile, Ranjan also reviewed other projects, including Centralised Mega Call Centre, IT City and Trans-Ganga projects in the meeting of Project Monitoring Group.
Ranjan expressed displeasure over the slow pace of work on IT City. He said the project should be functional by October 2016 under all circumstances. He directed the state environment department to issue No-objection Certificate (NoC) within a week.

GHAZIABAD: Starved of infrastructure initiatives, Ghaziabad on Wednesday bagged a project billed as the largest such venture in UP ? a Rs 1,125-crore elevated road stretching 10km and joining Raj Nagar Extension to NH-24.
It is expected to cut the driving time between the two points to 10 minutes. At present, the drive takes up to an hour depending on traffic. The icing on the good news is that this road will be toll-free.
Work on the road project is expected to begin on September 20 and finish by March 2017. The Ghaziabad Development Authority, which made the announcement, said the elevated road was the single-biggest such project to be undertaken by a development agency in UP. But in the context of NCR, it's a project that should have been mooted long ago for a rapidly urbanizing city like Ghaziabad.
Why India may see several ‘little Singapore’ smart cities in 5 years
18 Aug 2014
The government has already initiated concrete steps to implement Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s promise of building 100 ‘smart cities’ – eco-friendly cities which use innovative Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for efficient delivery of public services and infrastructure.
PM Modi’s pet idea of building 100 ‘smart cities’ would need massive financial resources and technological prowess. For both these prerequisites, India will have to look up to foreign countries. Many countries have expressed their interest towards this endeavour of the new Indian government.
The Modi government has allocated Rs 7,060 crore (a little over $1.1 billion) in its maiden union budget to kickstart the smart cities project.
Singapore has emerged as a major foreign player in the Indian scheme of things in this context.
The government plans to deliver three smart cities by 2019, all of which will be part of the larger project called Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). These smart cities, scheduled to be completed by 2019, are Dholera, Shendra-Bidkin and Global City.

TNN | Aug 13, 2014, 11.25PM IST
NEW DELHI: Government has approved construction of a road connecting Faridabad and Greater Noida that will improve connectivity between NH-8 in Gurgaon and Yamuna Expressway.

Foundation stone for this project will be laid in the next 7-10 days for this Rs 200 crore project, just before the poll date for Haryana assembly election is announced. Sources said that the project was pushed by MoS (road) Krishan Pal Gujjar, who is Faridabad MP. "We have got clearances from both Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to start work," said a road ministry official.
Metro plans to loop Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad
Written by Siddhartha Gupta | New Delhi | May 14, 2014 9:57 am
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is planning to extend the Blue Line from Noida City Centre into a 60 km-long loop, covering various parts of Noida and Greater Noida. The loop line will also be linked with Line 8 (Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden) of Phase-III by a 9-km stretch connecting Sector-143 and the proposed station near Kalindi Bird Sanctuary on the banks of the Yamuna.
“The loop will consist of one extension from Noida City Centre to Gaur City Square in Greater Noida West, for which the Detailed Project Report (DPR) is currently being prepared. This will then be extended to Bodaki village in Greater Noida. Finally, Bodaki will be connected with Noida City Centre via stations at Pari Chowk and Sectors-147, 143, 85, 101 and 50 in Noida, among others,” a source said.
According to DMRC officials, the DPR for the Noida City Centre-Pari Chowk-Bodaki stretch has been approved and work is scheduled to begin in a couple of months. Sources said the Noida Authority had asked the DMRC to prepare the DPR for the stretch connecting Line 8 and the loop about two months ago and that it was likely to be ready by October this year. The DPR for extension of the Blue Line to Greater Noida West too is likely to be ready by October.

Capital may think about these options
25 Feb 12
Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to variety of reasons
Let us accept it. Metro tracks cannot be built in every nook and corner of the city owing to a variety of reasons – congested localities and Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains (Amendment and Validation) Act, 2010, just to names two.
As per the Act, new construction is prohibited within 100 metres of a protected monument and there are restrictions on construction within 100 to 300 metres. Such restrictions are bound to create a problem in the city strewn with hundreds of protected monuments as was evident in November 2011 when the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) issued a stop-work notice to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation on the proposed Central Secretariat-Kashmere Gate section at Janpath.
Monorail is one solution
So what are the options? Experts believe that rail-based transport systems like monorail and Light Rail Transit System in Delhi should be the available options. In fact, the Delhi Cabinet last month gave in-principle approval for the monorail connectivity between Shastri Park Metro Station and Trilokpuri, via Laxmi Nagar in east Delhi.
“Fast and pollution-free elevated intercity new mode of transport Mono Rail has also been recommended as a mass transit in Master Plan Delhi (MPD) 2021. Besides having less noise as compared to other systems, it will also be aesthetically attractive,” Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had announced. Monorail will be a realty in Delhi by 2017, she added.
According to a government official, it has been decided that the route will start from Shastri Park Metro Station passing through Yamuna Pushta Road, Rajaram Kohli Marg, Geeta Colony, Patparganj Road, Nirman Vihar Metro Station at Vikas Marg, Ganesh Nagar, New Patparganj Road, Sanjay Lake to terminate parallel with proposed Trilokpuri Metro Station.
