GURGAON: Huda has started removing structures from Rohtash Ki Dhani, a hamlet coming in the alignment of the road dividing sectors 84 and 88. The road is expected to be completed in two weeks, and will improve connectivity between Dwarka expressway, and IMT Manesar. Work on the road was delayed to due to trouble with rehabilitation of oustees of Rohtash Ki Dhani, who did not vacate the hamlet even after Huda had allotted alternative land to them.
“Work on shifting of people and structures from Rohtash ki Dhani has started, and the road should be connected to Dwarka e-way within two weeks,” said Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav, adding the road will connect IMT Manesar with the NPR.
TOI had reported on March 6 about Huda’s plan to complete the road even if oustees delay vacating the land. On Sunday, a Huda official said even as the authority was planning to lay a temporary road to ensure traffic movement from the e-way to IMT Manesar, the oustees agreed to vacate the land.
Huda has already allotted alternative plots to the oustees. “A week back, we met inhabitants of Rohtas Ki Dhani to finalise acquisition of the parcel of land to complete the missing link between Dwarka expressway and IMT Manesar. We managed to convince them that they should vacate the land to allow the road to be completed,” said the senior Huda official.
The urban development authority had planned to connect Dwarka expressway with IMT Manesar via master roads of Sector 84, 85, 86, 87 and 88. Construction of most of the master roads in these new sectors was completed, barring the half-a-kilometre stretch at Rohtas ki Dhani.
At present, NH-8, also known as Gurgaon-Jaipur expressway, is the only road connecting Delhi with the industrial areas of Manesar. As a result, all the traffic is diverted to this road, leading to constant traffic snarls.
