A detailed traffic plan, showing the proposed RRTS station at Panchgaon, the toll plaza and suggested flow of traffic in the area, was submitted, last week, by the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI).
If approved, the plan would also pave the way for the highways authority to acquire land from the state industries body to construct the 28-lane toll plaza. This toll plaza is expected to replace the one at Kherki Daula after MCEPL’s contract expires in 2023, officials in the know of the matter said.
The traffic plan, submitted by the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), shows the route motorists would have to take from Delhi, Jaipur and the KMP Expressway to reach the RRTS station.
“We have submitted the traffic plan to the GMDA. It clearly indicates that the RRTS will not interfere with the functioning of the toll plaza,” NCRTC chief public relations officer Sudhir Kumar Sharma said.
According to the plan, as shared by the GMDA, new roads and slip roads would be built and all of them would lead to a roundabout meant to direct traffic to the RRTS station.
Commuters from Delhi, after crossing the toll plaza, would take the left slip road, head towards the roundabout and take an exit to reach the RRTS station. For commuters coming from Jaipur, a new slip road on NH-48 would lead then to the RRTS station. Commuters coming from Kundli would get a new road leading straight to the roundabout.
NCRTC officials said the various route maps, as detailed in the suggested traffic map for the Panchgaon RRTS station, clearly indicate that the local commuter traffic would not lead to bottlenecking at the toll plaza.
“We have given all options to the GMDA so that there is no doubt about the traffic movement at Panchgaon,” Sharma said.
