         Recommended Option 2 (Sheet-1 & Sheet 2)
    5 UTTPEC Processing

    The project was discussed in UTTIPEC Working Group-II-B meeting under the Chairmanship of Secretary, PWD on 03.05.2017.  The background, project, details, observations, recommendations of Working Group-II-B meeting are as follows:

    Background & Proposal:
    The study corridor starts from Shastri Park intersection to Sabhapur Border via Khajuri Khas Chowk on Marginal Bund Road.  The length of the corridor is approximately 7 Km. with 60m right of way as per the approved Zonal Development Plan of Zone 'E'.  Major roads intersection all around study corridor are Wazirabad road, Eastern approach road and Signature bridge connecting Outer Ring road to Western side.  PWD vide letter dated 19.09.2016 and further vide letter dated 01.05.2017 resubmitted the proposal.

    Based on the traffic survey, Chief Project Manager, F-2&3, PWD, GNCTD and their consultants presented three options which are as follows:

    Option-1
    Proposed 'four lane- dual carriageway' (from Shastri Park intersection to Khajuri Khas intersection) with NMT lane at both sides with proposed ''three lane- dual carriageway' underpass of 19.2 m clear width at Khajuri Khas intersection.

    Option-2 
    Proposed 'four lane- dual carriageway' (from Shastri Park intersection to Khajuri Khas intersection) with NMT lane at both sides and 'three lane- dual carriageway' vehicular underpass of 19.2 m clear width at Khajuri Khas intersection along with at-grade vehicular 'U'-turn.

    Option-3
    Proposed 'four lane dual carriageway' (from Shastri Park intersection to Khajuri Khas intersection) with at-grade vehicular 'U'-turn, 'three lane- dual carriageway' vehicular underpass of 19.2 m clear width at Khajuri Khas intersection and NMT lane on one side towards settlements.

    Out of the three options, PWD, GNCTD proposed the Option-2 above.

    Observations:
     Representative of Traffic Police (Eastern Range) suggested that proposed 'four lane- dual carriageway' will not be able to cater the load of the proposed traffic volume on Marginal Bund road from Shastri Park to Khajuri Khas intersection. Traffic Police suggested to widen the corridor to 'five lane-  dual carriageway' between Shastri Park intersection to Khajuri Khas intersection.  Representative of UTTIPEC mentioned that presently the stretch from Khajuri Khas intersection to Sabhapur Border is of 'three lane- dual carriageway', therefore, the narrowing of the corridor from five lane to three lane may create bottleneck leading to traffic congestion from proposed Khajuri Khas intersection to Sabhapur Border.

    Working Group noted that the stretch in question is connecting two major arterial roads and hence PWD should work out the feasibility of widening the stretch to 'five lane-dual carriageway' (from Shastri Park to Khajuri Khas intersection) and re-submit the modified drawings to UTTIPEC for uploading on website.  Further, the feasibility of hump subway may be worked out by PWD, GNCTD near the bus stops for the safe pedestrian movement. Pedestrian signal to be installed wherever the hump subways are not feasible.

    PWD, GNCTD to take all required statuary clearances from land owning agencies, Yamuna Standing Committee and other statutory bodies.

    Recommendation:
    Based on the above observations, Working Group recommended the Option-2 for uploading on UTTIPEC website for Community feedback and accordingly for the consideration and approval of Governing Body.  The PWD will submit modifications in the light of observations para (ii) above within a weak.  If no such modifications are received, uploading will be done as it is, without further loss of time and it will be assumed that PWD has nothing to add.
    Action: PWD, GNCTD
