Cloverleaf to connect SPR, NPR, e-way

The National Highways Authority has chalked out a plan to create a clover-leaf on the Gurgaon-Jaipur Expressway, near Kherki Daula, which will connect the Southern Peripheral Road and the Central Peripheral Road with the expressway.

The cloverleaf, estimated to cost around Rs 173 crore, will help reduce pressure on the three key highways once completed. It will be around 2km before Kherki Daula toll plaza.

P K Kaushik, a senior NHAI official, said that few big commercial projects are coming up in that part of the city due to which the traffic volume will go up on the expressway and the peripheral roads. The cloverleaf will help handle the growing traffic, he said. Around 1.4 hectare land will be acquired by Huda between Kherki Daula and Muhammadpur village and handed over to NHAI free of charge.

NHAI officials said the clover leaf will be a two-level interchange in which left turns, will be handled by slip roads. Vehicles in the middle will be allowed to continue straight on the road in either of the four directions. Those between the middle and extreme left lanes will pass over/under others, and exit right on to a one-way three-fourths loop (270°) ramp and merge with the intersecting road.

“The objective of a cloverleaf is to allow two highways to cross without the need for traffic to stop at signals, for both left and right turns,” and NHAI official said.

The SPR originates from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road near Ghata and meets NH-8 near Kherki Daula, and is proposed to be connected to the Northern Peripheral Road (Dwarka expressway) through CPR. The CPR starts near Kherki Daula village and meets NPR near Harsaru village.

Huda has confirmed that a plan is in making to create the cloverleaf, and it is in the know. “A cloverleaf intersection is essential at the junction of SPR, CPR and NH-8 to help maintain a smooth traffic flow. NHAI has conducted a feasibilty report in this regard,” said a Huda official. Another official said the junction does not need any signals, ensuring smooth traffic flow on NH-8.

Fencing to turn Delhi-Jaipur NH8 into ‘freeway’

In a move that will reduce travel time and ensure smooth movement of vehicles between Jaipur and Delhi, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to barricade the 225km-long Jaipur-Gurgaon stretch of the National Highway 8 (NH-8) and close all illegal crossroads across the highway.
Fencing will be carried out on both sides of the highway, resulting in uninterrupted vehicular movement on the main carriageway and service lanes. According to NHAI officials, casualties have also been mounting on the stretch in the absence of any defined entry and exit points.
“Accidents are occurring as villagers enter the highway from anywhere. There are no designated points for entry and exit. Commuters too have repeatedly complained about the menace. So, we have decided to properly barricade the road,” said an NHAI official.
“Several roadside food joints and shops too have come up on the highway. They have illegally levelled the approach to the highway by filling it with soil. This has caused many accidents in the recent past,” added the official.
