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:
Earlier, following corridors were discussed in UTTIPEC WG-II-B meeting on 3.8.2016.
a) Study Corridor-I,-From NH-24 Bypass to Old Yamuna Bridge on Pushta Road) (Marginal Bund Road).
b) Study Corridor – II (Old Yamuna Bridge – Apsara Border on G.T. Road).
Working Group dated 03.08.2016 had already recommended the alternative 4 of study corridor I, mentioned above, for consideration of the Governing Body.
Study Corridor – II (Old Yamuna Bridge – Apsara Border on G.T. Road)
The Right of Way (RoW) of the corridor is 45 m as per Zonal Development Plan Zone 'E'. The length of the corridor is 7 km. Chief Project Manager, F-2, PWD and their consultant RITES presented the following two alternatives of the segment between Eastern Approach Road (Shastri Park intersection) road upto Seelampur Chowk:
a)Alternative 1: Additional 2 Lane One way.
b)Alternative 2 (Recommended): Additional 2 Lane One Way flyover at Seelampur 'T' point extended upto Eastern Approach Road and a flyover with 6 lane-2 way divided carriage way with proposed elevated loop-1 & 2 for signal free traffic movement.
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).
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 .
PWD will widen the Marginal Bund road from Shastri Park junction to proposed loop to cater the expected traffic volume.
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.
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.
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.
