Yeida sectors to be linked with Yamuna e-way, EPE

Noida: Sectors under the Yamuna Authority will now be connected with the interchange leading to the Yamuna Expressway and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway.
Officials in the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (Yeida) said the decision to connect the 60 and 30-metre roads on two sides of the Yamuna Expressway with the 9.5km-long interchange at Zero Point would improve connectivity to key junctions. The decision was approved in the Yeida board meeting last Tuesday.
Once ready, commuters from Noida and Greater Noida will be able to go directly to Gurgaon and Palwal using the interchange between the two expressways. Similarly, vehicles going to Agra from Ghaziabad, Meerut and Baghpat will be able to come directly on to the Yamuna Expressway from the EPE.
Officials said this would improve access to the Noida airport from cities such as Meerut, Moradabad, Faridabad, Palwal and Manesar.
The Yamuna Expressway is about 9.5km from Pari Chowk, from where this interchange will connect with the EPE.
Officials said the interchange would be built near the Jaganpur-Afzalpur village and have four loops and four ramps.
Earlier, there was a proposal by the authority to connect the Yamuna Expressway with EPE via a cloverleaf interchange.
But later, Yeida requested the NHAI to provide a revised project report for connecting 60 and 30-metre wide roads running parallel to the Yamuna Expressway through entry ramps with the interchange.
The total cost of the project is Rs 75.5 crore, of which Rs 59.6 crore will be borne by the NHAI. Yeida will shell out the remaining amount.
Arun Vir Singh, the Yeida CEO, said the new arrangement would boost connectivity with the sectors. “Commuters travelling on both the expressways will get a lot of conveniences. The construction work will be done by NHAI, but the authority will bear the cost of connecting the roads with the interchange,” he added.https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/noida/yeida-sectors-to-be-linked-with-yamuna-e-way-epe/articleshow/91192397.cms
