The Haryana government is planning to build a 9km long road to improve connectivity between AIIMS’ National Cancer Institute in Jhajjar’s Bhadsa and Dwarka Expressway. The road is expected to be six lanes wide and it will lead to the expressway through Gurugram’s Sector 102. It will also provide connectivity with Delhi and IGI airport via the Dwarka Expressway. For construction of this road, the public works department (PWD) is planning to acquire around 102.3 acres of land in six villages in Gurgaon and Jhajjar.
Alignment of road connecting AIIMS Jhajjar to Dwarka E-way
The road is likely to start at AIIMS in Bhadsa and end at Sector 102 via Iqbalpur, Makrola, Budhera, Dhankot and Kherki Majra. At present, Gurugram residents heading towards AIIMS Jhajjar have to take Badli Road from Basai. This road is narrow and remains congested due to heavy traffic movement.
AIIMS Jhajjar has around 500 patients visiting its OPDs every day, who have to wait for 20 to 25 days to get an appointment. The hospital has 250 beds at present, which is expected to be increased to 700 by next year.
Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had in December 2015 announced that a four-lane road would be built to connect Jhajjar’s Badli with IGI airport. The state government gave administrative approval for the construction of the road in May 2017. The proposed AIIMS-Dwarka Expressway link is part of the CM’s announcement.
Land Acquisition 76 per cent complete
For the project, the state government is planning to acquire around 98.6 acres of private land and 3.7 acres of panchayat land. It has received consent from farmers for acquisition of 78.2 acres till now, which is around 76.4 per cent of the total land required. The estimated cost of AIIMS-Dwarka Expressway link is round Rs 272.1 crore, of which Rs 206.8 crore will be required for land acquisition and Rs 65.3 crore for road construction.
Land will be acquired in Kherki Majra (17.5 acres), Dhankot (13.4 acres), Budhera (24 acres), Makrola (35.6 acres), Iqbalpur (6.6 acres) and Bhadsa (5 acres). According to PWD officials, around 76 per cent of the farmers have given consent for the acquisition after compensation.
The government is planning to come up with a fixed rate per acre for land acquisition after detailed discussion and consultation with the farmers. “Land parcels around 45m wide will be acquired from Bhadsa to Makdola, while from Makdola to Kherki Majra, around 60m-wide plots will be acquired for the proposed road. The road will connect AIIMS Jhajjar to Dwarka Expressway at Sector 102. There is a plan to construct a flyover at this point to connect both roads,” a senior PWD official said.
“The process of availing consent from the remaining landowners is under progress,” an official said
