Harried commuters, who shuttle between Gurgaon and Delhi, have a thing or two to be happy about.

Trying to keep pace with the frantic development engulfing Gurgaon, the government has started acquiring land for a Dwarka-Gurgaon link road. This will be one of the three link roads that are being planned in a bid to ease traffic on the expressway and the two existing link roads between Gurgaon MG Road and Delhi.

The Link Roads whose work will be taken up on a priority basis are:

The Dwarka-Gurgaon Link Road: This link road will have a length of 18 km and will connect Dwarka in Delhi to the NH-8 at Kheri Dhaula. It will touch a host of places including Palam Vihar, Dwarka, residential and commercial hubs in Gurgaon, the Gurgaon railway station, future SEZ areas, and Harsaru Dry port etc. More importantly this link road will offer a direct Delhi-Manesar connectivity. This is on account of Manesar being touted as the next center of development after Gurgaon.

The Vasant Kunj- M.G Road (DLF-II) Link Road: Connecting DLF II to Vasant Kunj, this 9 km link will help provide the much needed shortcut to traffic heading from Vasnt Vihar to Faridabad.

The MG Road-Gurgaon-Faridabad Link Road: This is a 10- km road that will join the Faridabad road near Jaunapura Village. The purpose of this road will be to ease the volume of traffic on M.G. Road for those commuting to Faridabad.

Good connectivity is fast becoming one of the core competencies of Gurgaon. It is well-connected by road to Delhi and NCR, which has contributed in a major way to the burgeoning growth of the City.

Metro Rail on Track

The Metro rail is going to come to Gurgaon. The proposal has been cleared by the Haryana Chief Minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda and the decision has been formally conveyed to the Central Ministry of Urban Development and the Delhi Government.

Once operational, the metro rail service will be a boon for those commuting between Delhi and Gurgaon, on a daily basis. It will give the focus on development a whole new boost, taking the Gurgaon City to a whole new level altogether.
