    Default NH-24 from Delhi to Dasna to be widened!!

    New Delhi: To improve the connectivity between Delhi and parts of Ghaziabad and Noida, the highways ministry has now sanctioned the widening of the 20-km stretch of NH-24. The existing 4-lane stretch between Uttar Pradesh border and Dasna will be widened to six lanes.
    The project will cost Rs 128 crore, according to an official document issued by the ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH). The stretch will get five underpasses and 23 existing culverts will be widened.
    The document states that the government took this decision in response to the persistent demands of residents of Ghaziabad, Noida and Indirapuram, besides public representatives and media persons. Officials said the work would be awarded soon so that the task of widening starts at the earliest. The 8-laning work, which is already underway on the 8-km stretch between Nizamuddin bridge and Ghaziabad border is expected to complete by the end of this year.
    Presently, the 4-laned road from Ghaziabad border to Dasna is one of the most congested NH corridors in the country. Once completed, this stretch would become almost signal-free. Unlike the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway, this stretch will not be made a toll road. Sources said this decision was taken considering that a large section of the traffic using this stretch is local. The traffic on this road is expected to grow in view of increased occupancy in residential areas along NH-24 including Indirapuram and Crossings Republic, the two big sub-cities of Ghaziabad. Sources also said though the project could have been constructed on the BOT (toll) mode, they went for cash contract sensing that the toll mode could invite strong opposition from road users.
    Though the plan was conceived a few years ago, somehow it did not take off. NH-24 between Nizamuddin Bridge and Indirapuram is one of the busiest stretches during peak hours. About two years ago, the daily traffic movement on this stretch was nearly 1.4 lakh passenger car units (PCUs).
    In the recent years, areas beyond Ghaziabad border have emerged as prime residential destination for people working in Delhi. A traffic survey by RITES in 2008 had shown that vehicular growth on this stretch had increased by almost 200% more than the highways carrying capacity.

    P.s.: Indeed a very good news personally for me and for a lots of people who travel between Delhi and Ghaziabad and also a lot of Kumaon lovers Those who have been to this stretch know how badly it needs the widening work. Hope it gets completed soon.

    This means the road will be dug up for the next 500 years and will be full of diversions.

    People will be crashing everywhere and toll booths will come up.


    And you call this good news?

    What is there to read?

    Tell me has any project in India ever been completed on due date?

    And we all know about the quality of work that the contractors carry out.

    You may be very right bro...we will not contest you!!
    Let it go @SunilG...dont we need people to take us ahead of china

    Any ways.....the news is really great. Anyhow the project was sanctioned a long ago..(i think in mid 2005, after rainy season that year) but it was in junk bag!! Lets see if those promises go for real. Amen

    Uttranchal lovers and ghaziabad 'livers' will breath relief now (Lal Kuan flyover is a similar blessing)

    First you cry about how roads will be dug up for hundreds of years and how people would keep crashing. Now you have the typical Indian rona-dhona about the quality of the work...

    what do you want basically?? Do you know of a way you can widen the existing road without digging up or making the diversions??

    and on top of that, you didn't even bother to read the above report which says that it WON'T be toll road.

    I am amazed to see how negative people can be....

    I dont want to comment on the speed with which this project will be accomplished, but I still am glad that finally, one fine day, I will be able to ride to few places that are out of my list for the time being, owing to the amazing roads and impressive traffic.

    Perhaps, it will in turn get us more write ups in Tourer section which as of now is dominated to a large extent by trips to Himachal Pradesh. And I hope, my bike, my age and my Kids ( I will have one by that time) permits me to see the unexplored regions of Kumaon.

    There's hope atlast... for people living in that stretch..... I've been living there for the last 18 months before moving to Dwarka and I know what a big sigh of relief it can give to motorists all along the stretch... espcially from UP Gate till a little beyond Lal Kuan...

    Am Happy!

    I understand and share your frustration and anger over the kind of corruption and work that gets done in India. But we have to live with it and see the positive sides only, otherwise we will definitely keep banging our heads!
