8 August, Gurugram: Huda’s failure to remove high tension wires from a 600 m area in Connecting Peripheral road (CPR) resulted in people coming to join with CPR alignment. The land was to be transferred to National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) who wanted to start construction there.

NHAI has informed that the respective consultant will submit the report of how to change the alignment for connecting CPR a week later. A fresh drawing has been asked to be made to indicate all possible routes to connect north peripheral road also known as dwarka expressway with south peripheral road.

Udeep Singhal, project director, NHAI, Dwarka, said, “We are likely to get the report from the consultant by Monday. An updated drawing on the CPR will help us have a good discussion with officials of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda). We are trying our best to start the construction of CPR, but that depends on the land clearance from the Huda.”

On the issue of alignment of CPR being a big issue an NHAI official said, “The CPR is to connect northern and southern peripheral roads (NPR-SPR) on NH-48 near Kherki Daula through a cloverleaf,”

Yashpal Yadav, administrator, Huda, said, “We are in touch with the officials of the Haryana state industrial and infrastructure development corporation (HSIIDC) with regard to the land adjoining the CPR. It can be hoped that HSIIDC will not have any problem in transferring the land of CPR for the purpose of construction. Once consultant submits its report, we will be able to take things forward with HSIIDC.”

The last part of the 28 km long NPR is Connecting Peripheral Road(CPR). NPR  connects NH-48 near Kherki Daula from Shiv Murti near Mahipalpur. In the month of July NHAI had requested Huda in written to transfer land for CPR and cloverleaf construction.
