Soon there will be a direct route connecting INA Market to Mayur Vihar Phase–I with the United Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning & Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC) headed by the Lieutenant-Governor approving Phase-III of the Barapullah elevated road project on Thursday.
Under this phase, the road will be extended from Sarai Kale Khan to U.P. Link Road on the eastern bank of the Yamuna near Mayur Vihar Phase-I.
The 3.5 km road on the river bed will be constructed on stilts along the entire stretch. Further, this stretch will have a four-lane carriageway in each direction, with footpaths and cycle tracks on each side.
The alignment of this phase will also involve construction of a flyover parallel to the existing single carriageway flyover along the UP Link Road near Mayur Vihar Phase-I to facilitate movement from Noida towards Akshardham.
The traffic coming from the elevated road will disperse in three directions — right towards Noida through a grade separated loop, left towards Akshardham and straight towards Mayur Vihar at grade junctions.
Noting that the second phase of the Barapullah elevated road project is already in progress, Public Works Department Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said: “Now that the UTTIPEC has given us the clearance, the plan will now be sent to the Delhi Urban Arts Commission along with a model of the project.”
The alignment of this phase will be similar to that of the old pontoon bridge, he added.
The extension of this phase will include integration with the Metro station as well as the flyover at Mayur Vihar Phase-I, which would be made into a two carriageway flyover. Loops will be made to facilitate movement in all directions.
The project is expected to cost Rs.600 crore.
