The 16-lane, 8.3km corridor will link DLF's Gateway Tower in Cyber City to Golf Course Road.
India's biggest real estate major DLF, which has a majority of its assists in Gurgaon is planning to build a 16-lane, 8.3km long road in Delhi’s suburbs. The corridor will join DLF's Gateway Tower in Cyber City to the Golf Course Road, offering some relief from the crumbing infrastructure in the capital.
The new highway will include eight underpasses and a long flyover that will enable commuters to reach the Golf Course Road from Gurgaon toll plaza within seven minutes, which usually takes about 30 minutes.
DLF will build this long corridor in Gurgaon in a joint venture with the Haryana Urban Development Authority and the two entities are expected to infuse an investment close to Rs 400-600 crore for this project.
The new road project will also be fully integrated with the alignment of the rapid metro. It will also develop six-lane carriageways on both sides of NH-8 from the toll plaza to the DLF Square building to streamline traffic and feed into the 16-lane road.
DLF has hired global design and planning firm AECOM to undertake a study on traffic, infrastructure and urban planning improvements for Gurgaon, based on which the final design plan has been prepared. The process of bidding for the project is on and construction companies such as Lanco, L&T and Punj Lloydh have shown interest in the project that is expected to be operational in the next 36 months.
