Land acquisition done for Mohali’s Airport Road-Kharar linkway

Moving ahead with the construction a 6-km long, 200-ft wide link road between Airport Road and Kharar-Landran Road, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has completed the land acquisition process for the project. The road construction is expected to begin in October this year.

As many as 73 acres have been acquired, for which a compensation of Rs 1.98 billion is being paid by the Punjab government. The highest compensation of Rs 42.3 million per acre is being paid to landowners in Baliali village, which is the nearest to the Airport Road. At Rs 28 million per acre, the lowest compensation amount has gone to Tole Majra village, which is the near Landran-Kharar National Highway.

Apart from this, the state government will also be paying Rs 1.67 billion for trees and structures being razed on the stretch. The department of housing and urban development has approved the compensation amount.

The link road, which was proposed six years ago, will improve connectivity from Airport Road to Kharar. Covering major townships along its route, the road is a part of the Mohali master plan.

Jubilee Group director Sanyam Dudeja said, “The road will be directly connected with DPS School, Jubilee City Gardens, and other important areas nearby.”

GMADA chief engineer Balwinder Singh said, “We will float tenders for construction now as the land acquisition process is complete and work is expected to begin in October.”
