National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) opened an elevated U-turn from MG Road to Delhi at Iffco Chowk on trial run basis. Commuters from MG Road, Essel Tower, DLF II and Iffco Chowk Metro Station can use this U-turn to go straight towards Delhi or take a left immediately after getting down from the flyover towards Sukhrali on Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road.
At Iffco Chowk, another elevated U-turn is under construction on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway behind ABW Tower. Commuters from Sukhrali can use this U-turn to cross the expressway and go straight towards Manesar or take a left towards MG Road.
“It brought me great pleasure to use this U-turn. This is going to put an end to congestion at Iffco Chowk,” said Satish Solanki, a resident of Sector 17.
Earlier, on July 24, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar had inaugurated Hero Honda Chowk Flyover. This was followed by the inauguration of Medanta U-turn and Maharana Pratap Chowk flyover on August 14 by Union minister Nitin Gadkari. On June 17, Haryana CM inaugurated Basai Railway over bridge on Dwarka Expressway.
Apart from two elevated U-turns, the NHAI is currently working on an underground U-turn on MG Road and an elevated road at Iffco Chowk that commuters coming from Delhi can use to avoid the surface traffic of Iffco Chowk and head straight towards Manesar. The NHAI is also building underpasses at Signature Tower, Rajiv Chowk and Hero Honda Chowk.
