The Noida authority has expedited work on the twin elevated road projects including the Chilla elevated road, which will decongest traffic on the Delhi-Noida Link Road. The authority has also fast-tracked construction work on the Bhangel elevated road project by adding the first girder on the road aimed at addressing traffic congestion on Dadri Road. It had halted work on the Chilla elevated road project a year ago due to funding-related issues. Budgetary provisions by the Uttar Pradesh government will be approved shortly and till then the authority has decided to complete the work using its funds. Initially, the government had approved ₹605 crore for the 6 km-long elevated roads in 2020, however, half the amount was to be provided by the Public Works Department of the UP government. The Noida authority will pay the funds for now, as the payment of 50% from PWD is expected to come shortly.
The initial deadline for wrapping up the project was December 2021, but officials said that work will continue for another year and once ready, Chilla elevated road will link Mayur Vihar in East Delhi with Mahamaya Flyover in Noida. The authority has also expedited work on the Bhangel elevated road project with the placing of the first girder by using cranes. It is expected to be commissioned in less than a year. Both the elevated roads will address congestion issues and offer smooth and seamless connectivity to commuters.
