Survey for four-lane road along Agra Canal
The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is trying to make commuting between the Industrial Model Township (IMT) near Chandawli and Mithapur near Delhi-Faridabad border smoother. For this it is conducting a survey on the feasibility of having a fourlane road along the Agra Canal.
For commuters using the road between Faridabad and Delhi along the eastern bank of the Agra Canal is is an ordeal to drive down the stretch from Tigaon bridge in Ballabgarh to Mithapur, near the Faridabad-Delhi border. The road is an important link between the colonies situated across the Agra Canal and Noida and Ghaziabad via Kalindi Kunj, bypassing the congested Delhi-Mathura Road. Though the road is a link road for Mithapur, Jaitpur, Shiv Durga Builders Colony and other neighbouring villages along the Agra Canal, it serves as an important link between Faridabad and Noida. If HUDA approves the feasibility of a four-lane road, it will end the woes of the commuters on the stretch.
HUDA executive engineer Rajiv Sharma confirmed that a survey for four lanes on the 20-km stretch from IMT to the Haryana-Delhi border near Mithapur is being conducted. "Work on the 7-m wide road on the stretch is already on. The survey will be over in the next one week," he said.
