Background

It was a few years ago that the crucial need for an elevated flyover between Delhi and its satellite township of Faridabad was first realized. The traffic load on this stretch was more than sixty thousand vehicles per day and the existing infrastructure was incapable to cater to such a huge volume of traffic. As a result., the stretch faced frequent traffic jams delaying commuters by over 45 minutes. The NHAI proposed a 4.4 km long elevated six-lane road connecting in Delhi and Sector 37 in Faridabad as a solution to this problem. The freeway has been designed to provide uninterrupted travel past the four major crossings of MB Road, Jethpur, Sarai Bypass and Sector 37. The crossing is an important gateway to the capital city located on NH-2, which forms an important link between Delhi and Agra and even leads up to Maharashtra. For residents of Faridabad, it is the only direct link to the capital.

The project was awarded to HCC infrastructure Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of the HCC group. HCC began construction in Jan 2009 and the project was completed in under 24 months, significantly ahead of schedule. HCC’s construction team is very proud of this engineering feat despite the challenges posed by a highly congested work place and the unique downpours that Delhi witnessed in the summer of 2010.

Features

A safe and congestion free journey between Delhi and Haryana is the primary idea behind the creation of the dfskyway and the project boasts the following features:
