Gurgaon's southern road redevelopment delayed

Several residential communities along the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) in Gurgaon have been occupied, and numerous new projects are underway. The residents of the new sectors have been eagerly anticipating the completion of the long-awaited Dwarka Expressway.

They are looking forward to a smoother future journey along SPR. However, there might be hurdles ahead as the redevelopment plan for SPR, despite four years of planning, is yet to materialise. The residents have high hopes for the Dwarka Expressway, believing it will bring more traffic to SPR, connecting Dwarka Expressway and NH-8 to Ghata village, Faridabad, and Delhi.

The past year has witnessed a significant increase in traffic on SPR due to the flourishing real estate sector. This surge has led to the occupation of multiple residential societies along the stretch and the construction of numerous new ones. The opening of the Gurgaon section of the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway has further added to the traffic load. People like Dhirender Singh from Mapsko Mount Ville are worried about the current condition of SPR, which is plagued with potholes.

They stress the urgent need for substantial repairs to prevent accidents and ease traffic congestion for commuters arriving from the expressway. Despite plans for the redevelopment of SPR being in place since 2019, various proposals, including repairing the stretch and constructing underpasses, have been suggested. The most recent proposal involved building eight flyovers, widening carriageways to six lanes, and expanding service roads to three lanes, all at a cost of Rs 8,455 million. However, this plan was abandoned, leaving the residents frustrated.
