2 routes to link logistics, transport hubs with airport

Greater Noida: The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) has prepared a blueprint for two routes connecting the integrated industrial township on the Delhi-Mumbai corridor with the Noida airport in Jewar.
The first route will branch out of the logistics hub through the GT Road and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE), which leads to the Yamuna Expressway and the Noida airport. For this, a 2.5km pathway connecting with the GT Road will be widened from the existing two lanes to six. It will also have an underpass.
“This will provide seamless access to heavy vehicles from the logistics hub. The lanes will be widened to six so that there is no congestion in the area,” said Patanjali Dixit, company secretary at IITGNL (Integrated Industrial Township Greater Noida Limited).
According to Dixit, the underpass will be built near Shiv Nadar University. Commercial vehicles from the logistics hub will be able to reach the Yamuna Expressway from the Beel Akbarpur interchange.
The second route is being planned from the transport hub through a 130m road from the Sirsa interchange on the EPE. “An interchange will come up near Dankaur to connect EPE with the Yamuna Expressway. From there, vehicles will be able to go to the Noida Airport,” said Dixit. Work on laying the roads, he said, will go alongside the logistics and transport hubs that are likely to be operational in 4-5 years.
“In total, three major projects are being developed as part of the DMIC in Greater Noida. The first is an integrated township (IITGNL), the second is a multi-modal transport hub (MMTH) and the third a multi-modal logistics hub (MMLH). We have readied plans for these projects to be connected not only within the country, but abroad too through the airport. This will facilitate easy movement from other countries and attract foreign investments. The connectivity plans are ready and they will be implemented soon,” said Narendra Bhooshan, the CEO of GNIDA and managing director of IITGNL. The projects, Bhooshan said, are expected to provide direct employment opportunities to about two lakh youths. “The DPR of the multimodal transport and logistics hub has been sent to the government. As soon as the approval comes, tenders will be issued and work will start. The target is to develop a transport and logistics hub over the next three years. This will change the look of the surrounding areas,” he added.
