Recarpeting of MG Road to be completed in six months: PWD

September 13, 2013

ANCHAL DHAR : Gurgaon,

The re-carpeting and re-construction of MG Road will be completed six months, the Public Works Department (PWD) has said. PWD officials said the heavy vehicular traffic on the stretch was delaying the work.

The work was taken up last month when Gurgaon and Delhi surburbs were witnessing heavy rains. This in turn caused traffic to stop for nearly two hours during peak hours, an official said.

Geeta Parashar, a resident of DLF Phase 2, said, “There seems to be no order at junctions. What is the point of constructing roads when traffic is not regulated and the entire project is poorly managed?”

About two lakh vehicles ply on MG Road — one of the busiest stretches in Gurgaon — daily.

The MG road re-construction began at two points — the Sikanderpur Metro Station and near Guru Dronacharya Metro station. The work was stopped for days due to heavy rains and was resumed in early September.

N K Tomar, Executive Engineer, PWD (B&R) said, “Initially, when the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road was being constructed by the PWD, the commuters were hassled. But after the road was constructed, many have described it as one of the best stretches in Gurgaon. Similarly, due to high vehicular traffic on MG road, the project has seen many delays. At the Sikanderpur Metro station, we blocked the entire carriageway as there was a service road to reroute traffic. At Dronacharya Metro station, we blocked only one side of the carriageway as there was no service lane to divert traffic. The work was slow in these areas keeping the traffic in mind,” he said.

“The work at IFFCO Chowk, which sees maximum traffic, will be carried out towards the end of the project. We intend to divert traffic towards the HUDA City Center Metro station — onto the NH8. The project will take another six months to complete. The PWD and traffic officials are meeting regularly to chalk out plan to avoid any massive traffic disruption in the area,” Tomar said.
