Service Lane Along Gurgaon E-Way To Be Made Signal-Free

June 15th, 2010

Harried commuters using the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway may get some relief from traffic snarls in the coming week. The Gurgaon traffic police are in the last stages of implementing a comprehensive plan to make the stretch between the toll plaza and Shankar Chowk Crossing signalfree. The three traffic signals on this small stretch cause bottlenecks and long snarls during morning and evening peak hours.

We have been trying to de-congest the stretch. We are ready with our plan. The changes are in progress and the plan will be implemented in a week or 10 days,” said Gurgaon police commissioner, S S Deswal.

The traffic mess at this point has been there ever since the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway became operational as a major portion of the vehicles take the narrow service lane after crossing the toll plaza. Only the vehicles going towards IFFCO Chowk, Manesar or Jaipur take the flyover since most of the offices and industries are located in Udyog Vihar or Cyber City. “The service lane is inadequate to handle the massive load of traffic,”police commissioner said.

According to the new plan, traffic movement will be unhindered and will flow in a loop. “A part of this plan is already operational in the Cyber City area for the past three months, where we closed a crossing and provided a U-turn. Although initially commuters found this change bothersome, they will experience a lot of relief once the entire plan comes into effect,” Deswal claimed.
