The project was discussed in UTTIPEC Working Group-II-B meeting under the Chairmanship of Secretary, PWD on 08.03.2017. The background, project, details, observations, recommendations of Working Group-II-B meeting are as follows:
i) Seelampur ’T’ point should be improved by providing smooth left turn from G.T. road to Jaffrabad Road and from Jaffarabad Road to GT road (towards Shahdara side).
ii) It was noted that the loop will tend to expand capacity for motorized transport. However, a proper system of signaling & signages will be essential. The PWD & Traffic Police will make suitable provision for signal phasing & signages to ensure optimum utilization of loops and smooth flow of the traffic .
iii) PWD will widen the Marginal Bund road from Shastri Park junction to proposed loop to cater the expected traffic volume.
iv) The widening of the existing underpass crossing GT road near Shastri Park intersection to be done. PWD had already provided the same by widening it by 3 mt in their proposal/drawings.
v) Two ’U’ turns below the proposed Seelampur flyover, on G.T. Road should be proposed with standard clear height to decongest the T junction below the Seelampur ’T’ point.
vi) PWD, GNCTD will integrate the other proposal from Shastri Park intersection upto Khajuri Khas intersection incorporating the proposed cross section and other details at Shastri Park - G.T. Road junction.
Based on the above observations, Working Group recommended the proposal for uploading on UTTIPEC website for community feedback and accordingly, for consideration of the Governing Body.
Observations of The 54th Governing Body dated 22.06.2017:
The proposal includes a Multilevel Parking at Gandhi Nagar, Governing Body agreed with the proposed parking facilities, with the condition that PWD, GNCTD to explore alternative options to avoid concrete structure as construction of concrete Multilevel Parking will take longer time and difficult to dismantle in case of failure to serve the purpose or underutilized. PWD agreed for construction of multilevel parking using steel structure.
Traffic engineering solutions to be introduced
Decision of The 54th Governing Body dated 22.06.2017:
In view of the above observations, the proposal was approved by the Governing Body.
