3 August, Gurugram: For people who are looking ahead to the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) to become operational and expedite infrastructure growth in new sectors, from 81 to 115, there isn’t a lot of hope of the project seeing lightweight of day anytime before long. The project, that has been hanging fireplace for long, looks to own run into a recent hurdle.

Land acquisition method for Connecting Peripheral Road (CPR), which can connect NPR and SPR (Southern Peripheral Road) close to Kherki Daula toll, has been stopped as a result of the presence of high tension lines.Presence of high tension electricity wires during a 600-metre portion of NPR has emerged because the main hurdle to the project and also the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN), the steward of high tension wires, refused to shift the cables and poles.

Now, the Haryana urban development authority (Huda) is considering the proposal of getting different land closely-held by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) within the connected areas.

“The land closely-held by the HSIIDC, that is being thought-about as another acquisition possibility, is true adjacent the CPR. we have a tendency to area unit within the method of holding consultations with officers during this regard. Meanwhile, we’ve got asked the authority acting on the CPR project to explore the choice of adjusting the current alignment. Another meeting are going to be known as before long. However, HVPN same shifting of high tension wires and poles isn’t potential. Now, we have a tendency to area unit exploring all potential choices to attach NPR with the National Highway-8,” Yashpal Yadav, administrator, Huda, said.

The NHAI had written to Huda one or two of weeks agone seeking transfer of land for the CPR project and construction of a interchange road. The agency conjointly appointed a authority to draw up an in depth project report (DPR) for the 28-km Dwarka freeway (18-km portion of that in Gurgaon is thought as NPR) with one finish close to Kherki Daula and also the different finish close to knife Murti close to Mahipalpur on the Delhi-Gurgaon freeway.
