Works on a proposed 600-metre bridge, which will boost connectivity between Noida and Faridabad, are likely to begin by mid-2017. The project has been stuck between the two governments of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana for more than a year.
According to Noida Authority officials, another bridge, proposed to connect Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) expressway from Noida’s Sector 168 with Khedi village in Haryana, is also stuck in red tape. On Monday (Dec 5), after talking to officials of the Haryana government and the MoUD, it has been decided that the 600-metre bridge, which is proposed to link Noida’s Sector 150 with Faridabad’s Tilori village, will be completely funded by the Noida Authority.
The second proposed bridge between the FNG expressway from Noida’s Sector 168 with Faridabad in Haryana will be constructed by the NHAI as it has taken over the FNG project.
“Currently, we have estimated the cost of the bridge at Rs 263 crore, but now we have to prepare a detailed estimate of the project according to the new plan. This will take us about 4-5 months, after which we will initiate the tenders for the project,” he said. “Once construction starts, the bridge is likely to be ready within two years,” said P K Agarwal, chief executive officer (CEO).
The two bridges have already received a nod from NCR Planning Board. The locations of these two projects are proposed on the 75-meter wide FNG road passing between sectors 168 and 187A, while the second bridge will be located on a 75-meter wide road passing between sectors 149A and 150.
