The Lieutenant Governor (L-G) of Delhi Vinai Kumar Saxena on Wednesday approved the transfer of land to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) from the Irrigation and Flood Control Department of Delhi, paving the way for the construction of a six-lane highway from DND Maharani Bagh connecting Jaitpur-Pusta Road Section of NH-148NA.
The six-lane highway is part of the Centre’s ambitious Bharatmala project and is expected to ease traffic on the crucial stretches between Delhi, Faridabad and Noida.
Earlier, NHAI had requested the transfer of this land in January this year. The approval was granted subject to the condition that NHAI will use the inert construction and demolition waste generated in Delhi at the location of its construction and beyond, apart from making the required payment for the land.
In another similar move, L-G approved the transfer of 4,235 square meters of land belonging to the Irrigation and Flood Control Department of Delhi for the construction of a power substation at Nawada village in Uttam Nagar.
