Background: The proposal of alignment of UER – II from Kanjhawala Road to NH-10 was discussed in 31st meeting of Working Group II – A with approval of 2 km. tunnel beneath settlements following the approved alignment of MPD-2021. The proposal was recommended for consideration of the Governing Body. However, the proposal was withdrawn from the 52nd Governing Body held on 13.1.2016. The stretch from Kanjhawala Road to NH-10 is part of UER-II and acts as a missing link from already constructed portion of UER-II on Northern side of Kanjhawala Road and Southern side NH-10. Therefore, this stretch was again discussed in 33rd Working Group II A meeting to provide seamless connectivity of the UER-II.
Proposal: Consultant proposed three options with minimal demolition. Option – 1 proposes a new alignment beyond the settlements of Madanpur Dabas Ranikhera, and Ekta Vihar which deviating from the earlier approved alignment of UER-II. Option – 2 proposes widening of a new alignment along existing road to Madanpur Dabas. Option – 3 proposes a 2 km. long tunnel beneath the affected structures following the approved alignment of UER-II. Consultants provided details of properties affected and a comparative analysis of the three option from the perspective of construction cost.
It was observed by the Working Group II A that new alignment will require fresh acquisition of land which will be tedious and time consuming as per the new Land Acquisition Act-2014. Also, it will add to the project cost. Therefore it was unanimously agreed that already approved alignment of UER- II in MPD-2021 shall be followed. Option – 3 with 2 km long tunnel was observed to be most appropriate under the given circumstances. It was observed that adequate measures have to be taken for ventilation of 2 km. long tunnel. Consultants appraised that there are existing local roads within these settlements which may be considered for providing air shafts and skylights with safety and security. Consultants were requested to highlight the current status of stretch of UER – II beyond Kanjhawala Road and NH-10 so that a proposal is understood holistically. At NH-10 integration, a grade separator option was recommended.
Decision: Working Group II A agreed to alignment with tunnel road of 2 km. beneath the affected structures following the approved alignment of UER-II and recommended for consideration of the Governing Body with videography, adequate 3D animation and site pictures, detail of structures being saved due to tunneling.
