Gurugram, 6 June 2023: The 62nd Core Planning Cell Meeting of Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) was held under the chairmanship of Shri P.C. Meena, Chief Executive Officer, GMDA today. 

The proposals for reconstruction of 5 major roads in New Gurugram at an estimated cost of Rs 79.33 crore were approved in the CPC Meeting today. These include the 1.3 KM master road dividing sector 102/102A, 1.86 KM of master road dividing sector 106/109, 780 meters of master road dividing sector 114 outer, 1.8 KM of master road dividing sector 102A/103 and 1.8 KM of master road dividing sector 106/103. Under these works, reconstruction of the existing 6 lane main carriageway along with footpath and drainage network will be undertaken. 

“These are major sector roads which are connecting to the upcoming Dwarka Expressway and will see a potential increase in traffic movement in the near future. At present these stretches are in a dilapidated condition and GMDA will improve the existing condition of the road to enable safe and smooth commuting experience to the residents as well as to provide better connectivity to the upcoming Sheetla Mata Medical College & Hospital in sector 102. Development of green cover will also be taken up for the beautification of these roads,” said Shri P.C. Meena. 

The proposals for construction of surface drain and box drain at Rajiv Chowk were approved by CEO GMDA and directed the Infra 2 division to expedite the work. 

It was submitted by the Mobility Division that work for improvement of T-junction of sector 44, 45 and 52 (Kanhai T junction) will soon be allotted to the agency for the decongestion of this key intersection and to improve both vehicular and pedestrian movement. 

CEO GMDA directed the engineering wing to conduct a preliminary study to identify the critical points and intersections in the city where futuristic planning for road infra development such as construction of underpasses, flyovers and FOBs is to be undertaken, keeping in mind the future growth and traffic needs of the city. Major points of traffic congestions may be identified and the planning to facilitate both vehicular and non motorised transport be conceptualised for the city.

“Gurugram is developing at a rapid pace and to keep abreast with the growing needs and demands of the city over the next 1-2 decades, a futuristic planning is to be undertaken to address any potential issues that can impact the mobility factor of the city. GMDA will identify those key junctions, roads, etc, where remodeling and upgradation are required to ensure timely planning and execution of the essential infrastructure. We invite the participation of experts and citizens at large to submit locations of potential traffic congestion in the future, in order to address such issues timely for the benefit of the public,” added CEO GMDA.
