FNG expressway to be finished by end of year

The Noida Authority has aimed to complete the 11-kilometer-long, an underpass of Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) expressway, connecting sectors 143 to 168, by the end of this year.

The authority has taken this 56-kilometer-long project on priority which will connect Faridabad, Noida, and Ghaziabad. 

Starting from Chijarsi in Noida, 19.6 km of this expressway will fall in Noida-Greater Noida and will have 8 km long road in Ghaziabad. With the length of 28.1 km in Faridabad, FNG expressway will end at the entrance of the area, near Sector 168. 

The extension of FNG expressway till Sohna is proposed, after which its total length will be 75 km.

The 11-kilometer-long underpass across the Noida-Greater Noida expressway will connect sectors 143 to 168 after which a bridge has to be constructed across the Yamuna to connect Noida with Faridabad. 

The general manager of Noida Authority, KK Aggarwal, said, “The underpass across Noida-Greater Noida expressway and some other small stretches that are incomplete will be completed on a priority basis by the end of this year. This will cost about Rs 300 crore. Meanwhile, we will see what can be done about the Yamuna bridge and the elevated road and if any other agency can complete the same."

Due to shifting the project between multiple agencies, the 2016 proposed FNG expressway project delayed for over three years. 

The official said that the Noida authority wanted to take over the project and had been in talks with NHAI, but the central agencies had declined the offer. This made it difficult to carry out work on the elevated road and Yamuna bridge, connecting Noida (UP) with Faridabad (Haryana). 

“There are some small patches in between that also need to be connected. In some areas, we need to begin from scratch and even acquire land for the expressway. The entire stretch will take longer, but the underpass will be our priority as of now since we will not face any jurisdiction or permission related issues,” Aggarwal said. 

The expressway will connect three cities of two states.
