The construction of a six-lane elevated corridor between Mayur Vihar and Greater Noida in Delhi will cost around INR 650 crores. The construction of the project is all set to start, finally, after five years it was proposed. This project will be a part of the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, according to the officials. The corridor will be around 5.5 Kms. in length and once the project is completed, it is expected that the traffic on this stretch will be eased up to a great extent. Presently, the area experienced a heavy movement of vehicles and the situation will improve after the construction is complete.

 According to the officials of the Noida Authority, the estimated cost for developing the elevated corridor is around INR 650 crore. The construction of this project will commence in January, 2019 and will continue for the next 42 months. The overall cost for developing the corridor will be split in equal halves between the Noida Authority and the government of Uttar Pradesh.

 It was back in 2013 that the feasibility study for the project had been carried out. It was suggested that the elevated corridor would be developed between the Mayur Vihar Flyover, close to Chilla regulator to Mahamaya Flyover, located along the along the Shahdara drain. Next, the approval from UTTIPEC was awaited, but the no-objection certificate was not available from the Irrigation and Flood Control Department, Delhi. All these processes delayed the approval for the project, according to an official.

The Delhi Development Authority had earlier set up the UTTIPEC (Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure) for planning and engineering. The agency is responsible for examining and clearing the projects that are likely to have an impact on the traffic in the Delhi-NCR.

 On December 4, the Irrigation and Flood Control Department, Delhi finally approved the project with an NOC and the matter was eventually presented. The construction work will start off soon, according to the officials. After the elevated corridor is constructed, the traffic flow can be eased up. Particularly, areas like Pari Chowk, Akshardham, Mayur Vihar, Tandon, Kalindi Kunj and Sarita Vihar, that experience a heavy traffic flow, will enjoy the benefits.

The officials have also stated that the new stretch will pass through sectors 14A, 15, 15A, 16 and 18 in Noida, and then connect the commuters to the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, close to the Mahamaya Flyover. It is expected that the Dadri-Noida link road will be decongested when the elevated corridor is ready, as these areas face heavy traffic snarls. The present condition of traffic is expected to improve in the coming years, after the corridor is ready. The project will be executed by the UP-State Bridge Corporation Limited, and the scheduled time for the project to be completed is around the middle of 2023. The project will foster a better connectivity in Delhi.
