| Wednesday | 27th February, 2019
GURGAON: A survey of the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) has revealed that the road is witnessing damage due to overload , prompting GMDA to take up a project to strengthen the road.
The carriageway of SPR for traffic from Gurgaon to Faridabad has been badly damaged, according to the officials.
"We are working on the DPR for strengthening the road but we will not be able to share the specifics, unless it is approved," said a senior GMDA official.When a road is partially damaged, repair work is carried out on several layers of the road, which is called road strengthening.
According to GMDA officials, the road was developed to bear a traffic load of around eight tonnes but currently it is witnessing a 34-tonne load.The authority is now drawing up an elaborate plan to strengthen the road which was opened to traffic only two years ago in 2017 by Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP).
The detailed project report (DPR) is already under process, according to sources within the authority.A feasibility study done by GMDA earlier this year revealed that many trucks were using the SPR to move from Gurgaon to Faridabad , resulting in heavy traffic load on the road.
