28 April 2017, Gurgaon: Officials of HUDA (Haryana Urban Development Authority) and NHAI (National Highway Authority of India) announced that they are going to work together to make the NPR (Northern Peripheral Road) of Dwarka Expressway operational as soon as possible.


The officials are already in discussion regarding the issue of land acquisition for construction of a link road connecting NPR to the national highway. Previously, Haryana Chief Minister, Manoharlal Khattar, had visited the pertinent sites where the work is in progress and directed the officials to link NPR to NH-8 at the earliest. The HUDA administration has acquired the land for construction of the link road or CPR (Connecting Peripheral Road) and will be handing over the completed road after the demarcation of the land.


The CPR is going to be 3.2 km long and will help in connecting the peripheral road and NH-8 to Dwarka Expressway. The road will start 22 meters before Kherki Daula toll plaza and will connect the Dwarka Expressway near Harsaru village. The connecting road will be a crucial link between the Expressway and the peripheral road as an intersection highway will be constructed on NH-8 to facilitate smooth traffic movement in both directions. Such connectivity will also unblock the national highway that witnesses everyday jams and bottlenecks between Delhi and Gurgaon.


Vehicles going from Sohna road and Golf-Course road from Dwarka and West Delhi can use this connection to save time, fuel, money, and avoid any jams. Moreover, the traffic coming from South Delhi, Golf-Course road and Faridabad can comfortably enter the city and go to Manesar, or cut to new sectors and Dwarka, thereby reducing pressure on the highway.


The work on the cloverleaf flyover was supposed to have started two months ago but has been delayed due to late completion of the both the northern and southern peripheral roads. However, the work is expected to start soon as the Haryana Government has pushed both NHAI and HUDA to finish the project as quickly as possible.
