India’s biggest real estate player DLF and is set to build a 16-lane highway in Gurgaon that will link DLF’s Gateway Tower in Cyber City to the Golf Course Road, Economic Times reports.
The Indian giant plans to spend Rs 400-600 crore on the project that will include eight underpasses and a long flyover enabling commuters to reach the Golf Course Road from the Gurgaon toll plaza within seven minutes. This stretch usually takes 30 minutes.
“The objective is to provide optimum solution for traffic movements in the area based on present and projected traffic demand in future. This will be a signal-free movement from the toll gate to sector 55/56 and underpasses have been conceived considering urban environment to make it environment friendly,” Rajeev Talwar, Executive Director, DLF said.
Nearly 1.5 million residents and commuters from outside of Gurgaon who work in the city’s numerous corporate offices have been complaining of nightmarish infrastructure for years.
In addition, DLF has also initiated India’s first private rapid metro rail project to connect the Delhi metro to the office district. This will be operational by mid-2013.
