Gurgaon-Faridabad Road Operational, Toll Collections Start

Reliance Infrastructure Ltd commenced the operation of its sixth road project from Gurgaon to Faridabad. The four laning of Gurgaon-Faridabad and two laning of Ballabhgarh-Sohna road have been completed and toll collections have started.
It is Reliance Infra’s first state road project, executed on BOT (Build, Operate and Transfer) pattern, under the aegis of Haryana Public Works Department and government of Haryana. The project will be transferred back to the government after 17 years concession period, during which time the road will be operated and maintained by RInfra’s SPV (special purpose vehicle).
Built at a cost of Rs 800 crore, Gurgaon-Faridabad corridor connects major tourist destinations, industrial zones, corporate offices and International airport (T3) of Delhi. This 66 kms long corridor includes Gurgaon-Faridabad, Ballabhgarh-Sohna, Pali Bakri, Surajkund Road.
The 25 kms Gurgaon-Faridabad road starting from Gurgaon’s Mehrauli Road at Sikandarpur and ending at the junction of Pali Bhakri road in Faridabad, involved widening of the existing two lane road to four lanes. The 6 kms of Municipal Corporation of Faridabad road leading to Surajkund and 3 kms of Crusher Zone Road were also constructed for the benefit of the commuters.
The 28 kms Ballabhgarh-Sohna road starting from Ballabhgarh (35 kms on Delhi-Mathura Road) and ending at Rewari-Palwal involved re-construction and widening of two lanes. This stretch also includes 4 kms road from Pali village to Faridabad – Gurgaon junction.
Lalit Jalan, CEO, Reliance Infrastructure, said “We are happy to complete the widening and start the operation of our sixth road project that will ensure smooth traffic flow from Gurgaon to Faridabad and Ballabhgarh to Sohna. This will increase commuting convenience and connect centers of tourism, International airport, industrial zones and places of economic importance. Some section of the corridor with dangerous curves and steep rises have been realigned, so that commuters can maintain the minimum design speed and enjoy a comfortable ride. The corridor will witness approximately 36,000 vehicles per day that is expected to double in the next five years.”
The average vehicle speed on this corridor now will go up from 12 km/hr to 60 km/hr, thereby reducing the traveling time by 40 to 50 per cent and saving almost 40 per cent on fuel cost. Commuters traveling the entire stretch of Gurgoan-Faridabad-Ballabhgarh-Sohna road can now cover this distance in less than two hours whereas earlier this same distance used to take almost five hours.
