Noida: The Mayawati government is planning to build five bridges over Yamuna River which will help in better connectivity between Noida, Delhi and Haryana in the next five years.

The ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government has decided to put Noida and Greater Noida on fast-track of development, claimed Surinder Singh Nagar, MP from Gautam Budh Nagar.

"In the next five years, Noida will have five bridges on Yamuna River in Noida and Greater Noida area at a distance of six to seven kilometers each. These will provide better connectivity with Delhi and Haryana," Nagar said.

"Further, the Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad expressway is under construction. We are contacting Haryana government for construction of bridges on Yamuna so that they can incorporate further road connectivity in their area to link to NH 2. Then there will be smooth connectivity between NH 2 and NH 24 via Noida," he said, speaking at a BSP workers training camp held here.

Sharvan Kumar Sharma, a retired IAS officer who was earlier District Magistrate, Gautam Budha Nagar, and then Commissioner, Meerut, said, "From Kalindi Kunj to NH 24, several underpasses have been planned beside elevated roads. Residents of sector 62 will get smooth flow of traffic through elevated roads and underpasses."
