In an effort to streamline traffic flow in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, the Noida Authority is set to embark on the construction of a new four-lane underpass on the Greater Noida Expressway. With a focus on alleviating congestion issues, this strategic infrastructure project is poised to benefit residents across six sectors and seven villages in the region.

Project Overview and Allocated Budget

The upcoming underpass, positioned in front of Jhatta village, is slated to cover an extensive length of approximately 800 meters, with an estimated project cost of Rs 92 crore. The four-lane structure aims to enhance connectivity for residents in Sector-145, 146, 155, and 159, along with the adjacent Gayi villages.

Addressing Traffic Challenges in Greater Noida 

The existing small underpass at the location has struggled to cope with the high volume of vehicular pressure, resulting in frequent traffic jams. Villages such as Jhatta, Nalgarh, Kambakhshpur, Badauli, Deri Pandit, Momnathal, and Garhi Samastipur, situated along the expressway, have experienced these challenges.

Evolution of Infrastructure

Originally built to facilitate the movement of pedestrians and animals from villages surrounding the expressway, the initial underpasses near Advent, Kondli, Jhatta, Baktaurpur, and Shahpur have become insufficient for the growing population and traffic demands.

Greater Noida Innovative Approach

The Noida Authority, recognizing the need for evolved infrastructure, had initially planned to widen existing underpasses. However, logistical challenges prompted a new strategy in 2019, envisioning the construction of four new underpasses. Three of these projects, namely Kondli, Advent, and Sector-96 underpasses, have already reached completion. The Jhatta underpass project has received approval after an inspection by Dr. Lokesh M, CEO of the Noida Authority, in January.

Future Plans for Traffic Enhancement

Looking ahead, the Noida Authority is gearing up to address traffic concerns with additional underpasses, including one in front of Sultanpur village. These initiatives underscore Noida’s commitment to fostering sustainable urban development and ensuring smooth mobility for its growing population.
