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

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.

The 180 km project spanning Haryana and Uttar Pradesh is part of the Phase Five of the National Highways Development Programme, which envisages expansion to six-laning of 6,500 km of highway network.

The phase assumes significance as upgrade of the entire golden quadrilateral (5,846 km) to six-lane standards is a part of it.

Reliance Infrastructure bagged the project from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in May 2010. The company, however, has still not been able to start construction on the road.

The project is being developed on a build, operate and transfer (BoT), toll basis. Analysts, on conditions of anonymity, peg the cost escalation at round 10% as of now.
