Hero Honda Chowk flyover project yet to start: State Government unresponsive
Some relief was bestowed on the Gurgaon people with rains, but the same cannot be said for the commuters who have to take the road, which is situated near the yet-to-happen Hero Honda Chowk flyover. 'The traffic is a mess and people get frustrated everyday,' said a commuter, who doesn't want to be named.
The project of the flyover
is yet to take off with the files languishing in the state
government's offices. As was reported by the timesofindia.com, due to
various clearance issues such as land use, encroachment and forest
clearances, which are yet to come from Chandigarh, the delay is
happening for the project to start.
Talking about the project,
National Highways Authority of India
(NHAI) officials said that they
have done their part and is waiting for the state government to
respond. Talking about it, he said, "The flyover project is
still awaiting the state government's approval. We had sent them a
reminder 15 days ago. As of now we haven't received any updates from
The project, which
was suggested, so as to take some problems of the commuters away,
seem to have reached a roadblock, even before it could become
functional. With the construction of the flyover, the bottleneck,
which is created at peak traffic hours would have been avoided.
The official added, ''The
encroachment at the site is supposed to be removed by HUDA. And the
other clearances will come from Chandigarh. We are in constant touch
with them, but there's no clarity on when the approvals will
arrive.'' A committee by the name Hero Honda Chowk Vikas Committee,
has also been campaigning for the cause.
They are trying to take the matter to
the Centre and get their attention.
