Infrastructure Making Noida Properties Attractive

The New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) is set to undertake work on eight flyovers, seven underpasses, 13 FOB (foot overbridges), multilevel parking, two major road linkages and six elevated roads on the main road. Work to extend the Metro network is also in full swing.  This will make traffic movement in the city smooth, and help the real estate market go up.
According to a work plan prepared by the planning and engineering department of Noida to free the city from heavy traffic, three half flyovers will be built, one on T-points of Sectors 54, 60, 61, the second on Sectors 61, 53, 54 towards MP Road 2, and the third going towards Sector 15A. A DPR (detailed project report) is being prepared by M/s ICT Consultant and Delhi Integrated Multi-Model Transit System Pvt Ltd.
In addition, eight flyovers, seven under passes and 13 FOB (foot over-bridges) have also been proposed at ten places like Sector 37, Sectors 125, 94, 95, 35, 51 crossing, Sectors 19, 20, 26, 27 crossing, Sectors 19, 27, 18, 17 crossing, etc.
Noida has also approved construction of a 5.8km elevated road parallel to the Shahdara drain. Starting from Sectors 14 and 14 A onto Sector 95 and Kalindi Kunj, the stretch will be of four lanes and cost Rs 525 crore. This will be an alternative route between Kalindi Kunj and Noida, thus easing traffic congestion on the expressway.
Sanjeev Saran, the chief executive officer of Noida, says: “Noida authority has sanctioned the construction of a traffic junction at Sector 71 crossing. We have planned to construct the traffic junction on the lines of Sector 37 traffic junction. Thousands of commuters, who now have to face traffic snarls at Sector 71 crossing in peak hours, will be able to use the new junctions. With the construction of the underpass and flyover, Sector 71 crossing will be signal-free.”
Authority officials say it is the first time in the city that an underpass and a flyover would be built simultaneously with the construction of a new Metro line.
According to Master Plan-2031, Noida’s population will rise to 25 lakh, 19 lakh more than the current population. Keeping this in mind, traffic plan has been revised for widening of roads connecting to the sectors from existing 30 metres to 45 metres.
In keeping with traffic plan, the Noida authority is working to decongest various bottlenecks in way of smooth movement of vehicular traffic. Roads like those in Sector 18, Rajni Gandha Chowk, Sector 37 and Choura Mode, among others, have been widened to meet the growth of vehicular movement. An additional bridge will also be built on Okhla barrage, parallel to the existing Yamuna bridge.
New parking lot in Noida
Over the years, the problem of space crunch for parking vehicles has risen to alarming proportions owing to a lack of planning. Traffic chaos is a common problem as limited space for parking leads to improper parking across the roads. Due to bottlenecks created by vehicles parked on footpaths in many areas like Harola market, Sector 6, Sector 15, Sector 16, Sector 62, etc, entering Noida at peak hours is very difficult. A large number of vehicles belonging to the BPO companies can be seen parked haphazardly on roads in Sectors 16, 24, 58, 59, 60, 61 and 62.
In view of this, Noida has planned to open new multilevel parking lots in the city across Sectors 5, 8, 18, 57 and 63 in the city. The authority has finalized the final designs for the parking lots that lie in four industrial sectors and one business sector of the city.
New bridge on Okhla barrage
The Okhla barrage connects Kalindi Kunj to Noida and was opened to traffic in 1986. Since then it has witnessed a tremendous increase in vehicular movement. The Noida authority has now planned to build a new bridge parallel to the old one. A DPR is being prepared by M/s Holtec Consulting India Pvt Ltd and the actual project is likely to be completed by 2013.
The existing bridge will also be upgraded soon, keeping its state of disrepair in mind. Work will be taken up in phases on both sides of the carriageway. During the repairing drive, one side of the bridge will be closed for a month while traffic movement will be allowed on the other side. The current bridge was designed to cater to the movement of just about 10,000 vehicles, which has now crossed to over one lakh every day.
