Traffic on the Delhi-Gurgaon state highway (NH-8) has been a significant challenge for the Gurgaon administration, with vehicles from multiple points convergence on Hero Honda Chowk and leading to snarls, usually stretching to many hours. The flyover project had been planned to require the load of vehicles on the stretch and facilitate a swish flow of native and long-distance traffic.
With the eight-lane flyover seemingly to make sure swish and uninterrupted flow of long-distance traffic, native commuters can notice it straightforward to maneuver from one aspect of the state highway to the opposite. It wont to be a Herculean task earlier attributable to the convergence of vehicles from multiple points.
Pradeep Kumar, a resident of Sector ten, said, “Now, I will cross the state highway at Hero Honda Chowk to achieve my workplace at Sector thirty five. I won’t have to travel 3km to Rajiv Chowk before taking the U-turn to reach office. The opening of the flyover will come as a huge relief for me and thousands of fellow commuters.”
Traffic management during the construction of the flyover had been a challenge for the city traffic police, with the convergence of vehicles adding to the chaos.
“Although there were many hurdles along the way, we are delighted that the flyover is now ready to open to traffic. The trial run has been conducted successfully. We are through with installation of lights on the flyover and have also placed cat eyes and blinkers wherever necessary,” said Ashok Kumar Sharma, project director, NHAI, adding that the flyover will go a long way to resolving the traffic problem on the stretch.
