Agra-Lucknow expressway gets UP cabinet approval






Agra-Lucknow Expressway to be operational by Oct 2016

Rs 15,000 cr project would span 10 districts in Uttar Pradesh

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.

Capital may think about these options

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.

Proposed route
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.

Gurgaon NPR- Inching Closer

No Progress Road: NPR to miss second deadline

HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times
Gurgaon, December 03, 2012

Eight months after it missed its first deadline, the much-hyped Rs. 57 crore Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) project is still struggling to reach the finish line even as the second deadline looms round the corner. The 18-km-long road, also known as Dwarka Expressway, is bound to miss the

December 31 completion deadline — thanks to the lackadaisical attitude of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda).

The 150-metre-wide road will connect Dwarka in Delhi and Kherki Daula on NH-8.

Of the 18-km stretch, the bituminous work is complete hardly on eight km area. Moreover, a four-km stretch is entangled in a legal dispute.

"We still have 28 days and we hope to complete at least five km. I have asked the contractor to speed up the work and complete the stretch by end of the month," said Pankaj Kumra, chief engineer, Huda, the custodian authority of the project.

When questioned about the reason for the delay, the chief engineer said, "The contractors are facing law-and-order problems on the NPR, mainly on the portion under litigation. The workers are having difficulty as many houses and establishments have not been removed for the work.”

The delay has shattered the dreams of tens of thousands of buyers and builders whose money is invested in hundreds of projects coming up along the NPR. The project was awarded to JSR Construction Pvt Ltd and Indiabulls Construction Limited on April 1, 2011 and its first deadline was March 31, 2012.

Gurgaon to Chandigarh- by Shatabdi Express !

Catch a Shatabdi to Gurgaon…

CHANDIGARH: If plans translate into action, you could soon be boarding a Shatabdi Express to Gurgaon. The extension of the popular train service to the Haryana city is on the cards, with railway officials considering the proposal.

Apart from hundreds of techies and management professionals who shuttle between Chandigarh and Gurgaon for work, the added facility is likely to bring respite to those who don't have private conveyance and often have to take a cab from the New Delhi railway station, an exercise that is more cumbersome than the train ride itself.

Badarpur Flyover- Problems Persist

Smooth passage on Badarpur road, Same Jams Down Under

With only cars taking the elevated road and several loops creating new bottlenecks, traffic on the ground remains as bad as ever near the Delhi-Faridabad border

Rumu Banerjee | TNN

Built at a cost of Rs 340 crore, the Badarpur elevated road was supposed to be the one-stop solution to the traffic nightmare that motorists faced on the Delhi-Faridabad border. Yet, weeks after being inaugurated, the elevated corridor seems to have only thrown up a host of new problems. Traffic jams are still a common sight here, made worse along the multiple loops that come down from the elevated corridor towards Jaitpur, Mehruali and Badarpur village. Long lines of vehicles jostling to get around the loops are followed by the equally long queue near Aali Village, the last — or first, depending on the direction you’re coming from — junction before you get on the elevated corridor.

KMP Expressway: Further Delayed

महत्वाकांक्षी परियोजना केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे का 53 किमी लंबा पहला चरण होगा शुरू

Story Update : Sunday, February 05, 2012     12:01 AM


गुड़गांव। प्रदेश की महत्वाकांक्षी परियोजना कुुंडली-मानेसर-पलवल (केएमपी) एक्सप्रेस-वे (वेस्टर्न पैरीफेरल एक्सप्रेस-वे) के पहले चरण में 53 किमी लंबा मानेसर से पलवल रूट अप्रैल में शुरू हो जाएगा, जबकि 135 किमी पूरे केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे को वर्ष के अंत तक खोल दिया जाएगा। गौरतलब है कि केएमपी एक्सप्रेस के निरीक्षण के बाद मुख्यमंत्री परियोजना में हो रही देरी को लेकर नाराजगी भी जाहिर कर चुके हैं। केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे को शुरू करने के लिए अब तक कई बार डेडलाइन बदली जा चुकी है। मानेसर से पलवल रूट खुलने पर टोल का भी भुगतान करना होगा।
चार राष्ट्रीय राजमार्गों को आपस में जोड़ने वाले केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे का करीब दो हजार करोड़ रुपये की लागत से निर्माण किया जा रहा है। केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे के शुरू होने से एनएच-1, एनएच-10 और एनएच-8 से होता हुआ पलवल में एनएच-2 से मिलेगा।
कंपनी प्रवक्ता के अनुसार, केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे दिल्ली-अमृतसर राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग-1, दिल्ली-फाजिल्का राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग-10 तथा दिल्ली-जयपुर राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग-8 को काटता है, इसलिए वहां बडे़-बडे़ लूप बनाए जाएंगे। यह लूप दिल्ली में धौला कुआं पर बने लूप जैसे होंगे, जिनसे वाहन चालक राजमार्गों से केएमपी एक्सप्रेस-वे के ऊपर चढ़ सकेंगे तथा नीचे भी उतर सकेंगे।

ET Spcl: The way forward for new-age townships

20 Dec, 2010, 08.48AM IST, Neha Bhatia,ET Bureau

With metro cities already bustling with over-population , the focus of real estate developers and urban planners has now shifted towards developing the satellite towns on the periphery of bigger cities. However the biggest bottleneck in popularising new townships in the peripheral regions is the lack of proper connectivity. As the real estate sector is finally coming on the fast track, connectivity remains the major concern.

Giving an overview of the sprawling urban areas in different parts of the country at the Economic Times Realty Convention 2010, Kumari Selja, Minister, Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation said, "Almost all the major towns and cities have expanded along the highways connecting cities in regions for example Delhi-Jaipur , Delhi-Meerut , Mumbai-Ahmedabad , and so many others throughout the country.
