Way cleared for completion of Dwarka-Manesar e-way

Dwarka

The way was cleared for the completion of the Dwarka-Manesar Expressway in Gurgaon on Wednesday with the Punjab and Haryana High Court finalising a settlement between land and home owners and the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA).

The two-kilometre stretch in the middle of the 18-kilometre expressway was held up because of land acquisition issues. About 700 people whose homes and lands came in the way of the expressway had contested acquisition of the land.

Of the 15 writ petitions that were filed, 11 pertaining to the New Palam Vihar Colony have been disposed of while others related to a 200-metre stretch at the edge of the expressway close to NH8 and some others will be heard by the two-judge Bench of Justices SK Mittal and HS Sidhu next week.

The petitioners and the HUDA have come to a settlement whereby the homeowners will get alternative land closely, in Sectors 110A and 37C of Gurgaon, as well as compensation to rebuild their homes.

The settlement is significant because around 40,000 apartments are being built in residential projects along the expressway and some of them have been completed as well but their access was restricted because the road which was being built by India bulls Construction since 2011 was not completed in time.

Homeowners in New Palam Vihar have been given time till January 31, 2016 to vacate their homes. In this period their new lands will be handed over to them and they can start construction if they wish.

The 18-km long Northern Peripheral Road, or Dwarka-Manesar Expressway, is being developed as an alternative link between Delhi and Gurgaon.
