The Eastern Peripheral Expressway is going to be ready in 500 days of record time to get Delhi to get rid of pollution. According to an official of the National Highway Authority of India, the government had fixed 910 days for its construction, but now it is going to be ready in half the time. At the end of this month, PM Narendra Modi and Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari will inaugurate the expressway. The 135-kilometer long expressway connects Palwal, Ghaziabad and Noida directly. With this, vehicles going from Haryana to UP and Haryana to Haryana will not have to go through Delhi. It is said to be the fastest expressway in the country because vehicles here will be allowed to run at a speed of 120 km per hour.
This will reduce travel time and reduce the number of pollution caused by vehicles in Delhi. Chief General Engineer of NHI BS Singla said that the specialty of this expressway will be that only you will have toll to pay the same amount of distance, as far as you can decide the distance traveled. Not only this, it will be an electronic arrangement of toll collection so that traffic movement is not obstructed.
Overload vehicles will not get entry
Singla said, ‘Apart from this, we have installed such sensors on all entry points of expressway, which will know about any overloaded vehicle and will not get entry on expressway.’ Generally, such kind of sensors are installed on toll plaza and they are returned when found overload of vehicles, but this expressway will have such sensors on entry points so that overloaded vehicle entry can not be done only.
Electronic invoices will be deducted at OverSpid, with toll
Singla said, “We have also given the facility of parking near Expressway so that the overloaded trucks can take their belongings there and then with the fixed weight we should go ahead. This is the first of its kind in the country. ‘ The officer said that cameras have been installed at every two kilometers to control the speed of the vehicles. Singla said, “The electronic challan will be deducted for vehicles running faster than the speed limit and it will be sent to the people along with the toll. Those who run overspeed will be able to restrain it.
