Commuters, who take the Kherki Daula toll plaza has a reason to rejoice now. With the number of increasing vehicles at Kherki Toll Plaza, it would some as a respite for the commuters. To provide some respite to the commuters, the newly appointed operator for Delhi- Gurgaon Expressway has decided to add six extra lanes at toll plaza.
There were nine lanes on each side of the Kherki Daula Road, which
would be extended to 12. Three lanes would be added to each side of
the lane. It is expected to be implemented from Monday. With these
roads remaining open for twenty four hours, it will help in making
the traffic sail smooth soon at the toll plaza.
Around 60,000 to 70,000 vehicles reportedly pass through the plaza
every day. "To improve the traffic situation, the number of
lanes should increase. The six extra lanes will help cut down the
waiting time," said Navneet Singh, CEO of Skylark Highway
Solutions Ltd, the new Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway operator, as was
reported by the timesofindia.com.
With the increase in the number of roads, the operator also plans
to increase the number of traffic marshals to assist vehicles taking
U-turns from the Delhi-Jaipur side to the Jaipur-Delhi side. The
number of road marshals would be 120 in the stretch of this 27.7 km
road. When taking a U-turn from Gurgaon towards Delhi, the traffic
coming from the opposite direction (Jaipur) tends to be disrupted and
slows down clarified Singh.
In a recent incident, some of the company people and the toll
collectors were badly beaten up by some defaulters of nearby
villages. There was some argument about non payment of taxes, which
escalated. Although the CEO of the Skylark Highways Solutions Ltd
denies the fact that people were beaten, he agrees to the ruckus
created by some villager. He also assures that people assisting them
would be present to avoid such mishappenings in the future.
