Ghaziabad plans to connect two big city roads to national highways

The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) proposed connecting two important city roads to the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE), which is currently in operation, and the under-construction Delhi-Dehradun national highway (NH-709B), in an effort to divert heavy traffic away from the city.

The plan was delivered to Santosh Kumar Yadav, Chairman, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), who has previously held the positions of vice-chairman of the GDA and district magistrate in Ghaziabad. The Northern Peripheral Road, currently under construction, and the Outer Ring Road, currently under construction, would both connect to the national highway, according to officials.

According to Rakesh Kumar Gupta, Chief Engineer of GDA, "the plan will assist us in diverting roughly 20,000 vehicles to these highways/expressways and this will help ease the current traffic situation on major roads such as the Delhi Meerut Road."

The proposed connection between the EPE and the 10 km outer ring road, which runs from Karhera rotary to the proposed international cricket stadium near Morti, will connect GDA's Northern Peripheral Road, which is now under construction and goes from NH-9 to Loni.

These two highways are located on the outskirts of the city of Ghaziabad. However, traffic from these highways causes significant snarls on the Raj Nagar Extension and Delhi-Meerut Road.

NHAI has been asked to do a thorough analysis of the plan and provide a cost estimate. NHAI would also be responsible for paying for the connection.
