The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will block 200-meter-long sections of the rightmost lanes on both the carriageways of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway for at least six months from 5 pm on Wednesday to facilitate the construction of a cloverleaf intersection close to the Kherki Daula toll plaza.
This is likely to cause congestion and a delay in travel time, traffic police said.
According to a report in Hindustan Times, the lanes will be blocked about a kilometer before the toll plaza, on the way to Jaipur. The concessionaire will construct temporary lanes in the space between the green belt and both carriageways.
“The blockade will be in place for at least six months. Commuters should expect some congestion, as well as a delay of 10-15 minutes in travel time. They should plan their journeys accordingly. The traffic police will be present at the spot for assistance and diverting vehicles,” hindustantimes.com reported Ravinder Singh Tomar, DCP (traffic), Gurugram Police as saying.
The advisory said that the lanes will be blocked about a kilometre before the toll plaza, on the way to Jaipur.
The concessionaire will construct temporary lanes in the space between the green belt and both carriageways.
Commuters can use the Dwarka Expressway to head towards west and north Delhi as well as the Indira Gandhi International Airport, and NH48 to travel towards Jaipur or south and central Delhi.
