Hindon elevated road opens, to cut travel time, end snarls

The 10.3-km Hindon elevated road, which will provide a signal-free commute between Raj Nagar Extension and UP Gate on NH-24 in Ghaziabad, was inaugurated on Friday with the UP government claiming it to be the longest of its kind road on 287 pillars. The six-lane road, built at a cost of Rs.1,147 crore, will act as a bypass for vehicles going to Meerut, Muzzafarnagar and Dehradun from Delhi. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath inaugurated the road at Karhera — the point where it starts and then laid the foundation stone for other infrastructure projects worth nearly Rs 1,800 crore in Ghaziabad. The high-speed link has been engineered for a top speed of 100kmph, but officials have set the maximum speed limit at 80 kmph. The elevated road project was funded by the Ghaziabad Development Authority and a loan of Rs 700 crore from the NCR Planning Board.
