NOIDA TO HAVE SIGNAL FREE TRAFFIC
Noida authority has declared Noida `Signal-free
city' in a bid to reduce the over-loaded traffic system and improve
the quality of life of the residents. TEAM TIMES PROPERTY writes
The Noida authority has a number of projects
lined up for the city like under passes, FOBs (foot over bridges),
multilevel park ing, major road linkages, and elevated roads on all
main roads, which would reduce the traffic load and make commuting
easy for residents and visitors.
Real estate development is expected to pick up
pace after this initiative.
A survey shows that traffic volume during peak
hours in the last few years has increased manyfold making life of
commuters very difficult on clogged roads.The Noida authority has
already constructed a number of underpasses and flyovers in the
recent past to ease traffic movement.
But this is not enough for the ever increasing
traffic woes and the authority has approved Rs 45.42 crore for the
construction of a new underpass at the busy intersection of Sector
25A24 and Sector 2433A on the Master Plan (MP) 2 Road.
The proposed underpass is expected to ensure
signal-free ride for nearly 40,000 daily commuters who face heavy
traffic and wait for long at traffic signal.
The authority also has plans to construct a
5.5km-long elevated road on MP2 Road (Vishwa Bharti School to
Shopprix Mall) at a cost of Rs 500 crore. Apart from this, a number
of underpasses have been planned on Master Plan 3 Road (Golf Course
According to a work plan prepared by the
planning and engineering department of Noida authority, three half
flyovers like the one on T-points of Sectors 54, 60, and 61 and
another on Sectors 61, 53, and 54 towards MP 2 Road and a third
towards the Sector 15A are to be constructed soon.
The Noida authority has recently approved the
construction of a 5.8km-long elevated road parallel to the Shahdara
drain. Starting from Sectors 14 and 14A and on to Sectors 95 and
Kalindi Kunj, the four-lane stretch will be built at a cost of Rs 525
crore. This will provide an alternative route between Kalindi Kunj
and Noida, thus easing traffic congestion on the expressway.
Rama Raman, chairman and CEO of Noida
authority, says: “The Noida authority has sanctioned the
construction of traffic junction at Sector 71 crossing.Thousands of
commuters, who now have to face traffic snarls at Sector 71 crossing
during peak hours will be able to ply through the new junction. An
underpass and a four-lane flyover are already operational at Sector
37 junction. According to Master Plan 2031, Noida's population will
touch 25 lakh in another 20 years, 19 lakh more than the existing
population.Keeping this in mind, traffic plan has been revised for
widening of roads connecting to the sectors from the existing 30
metres to 45 metres.“
The Noida authority is already working to
remove various bottlenecks on the city's roads. Roads like those in
Sector 18, Rajnigandha Chowk, Sector 37 and Choura Mode have already
been widened to meet the growth of vehicular movement. In addition, a
second bridge will be built on Okhla Barrage parallel to the existing
Over the years, the lack of space for parking
vehicles has risen to alarming proportions because of the lack of
planning. Traffic chaos is a common problem, as limited space for
parking leads to improper parking across all roads. Due to the
bottleneck created by vehicles parked haphazardly on the roads and
even encroaching upon footpaths in many areas like Harola market,
Sector 6, Sector 15, Sector 16, Sector 62, etc, entering Noida during
peak hours is very difficult. A large number of vehicles belonging to
the BPO companies can be seen parked at random, mostly on roads in
Sectors 16, 3, 24, 58, 59, 60, 61, and 62.
To free the city from such traffic woes, Noida
authority has planned to open new multilevel parking lots in the city
across Sectors 5, 8, 18, 57, and 63. The authority has finalized the
design for the parking lots that lie in four industrial sectors and
one business sector of the city.
To reduce the heavy traffic on the busy Hindon
bridge across the Okhla Barrage, which connects Kalindi Kunj to
Noida, a new bridge parallel to the existing one has been. Since
1986, the existing bridge has seen a tremendous increase in vehicular
The existing old bridge is also to be upgraded
and work is being taken up in phases on both sides of the
carriageway.The existing bridge was designed to cater to only around
10,000 vehicles a day, but nearly 1,00,000 vehicles ply on it every
The barrage was built to check the flow of
Yamuna and prevent floods. It has a two-lane link on each side to
connect Noida with areas like Kalindi Kunj and Mathura Road, which
cannot cope with the volume of traffic. Colonies sprouting up along
Noida-Greater Noida Expressway have also contributed to the unchecked
rise in traffic.
The Noida authority has already expedited work
on two bridges to be built across Yamuna, which will improve
connectivity between Noida and Faridabad.
The first bridge will connect
FaridabadNoida-Ghaziabad (FNG) Expressway with Haryana in Faridabad.
This bridge will be constructed in Noida's
Sector 150. The other bridge is proposed to link Noida's Sector 168
with Faridabad's Badoli village.
