Faridabad: The chock-a-block national highway NH-2 will soon be converted into six lanes to provide relief to commuters from the long traffic holdovers.

The district administration has started the preparations to execute the task of broadening the highway and the construction for the metro line by causing least discomfort to the public.

The project has been lying in abeyance for long as the alignment of the metro could not be finalized. Now the metro will align to the left direction of Delhi to Faridabad route.

The DMRC is involved in preparations for release of tenders while NHAI is about to start the construction work for the six-lane highway.

To prevent any uneasiness to the people commuting on the national highway, the district administration is all set to hold a joint meeting with the DMRC, NHAI, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), Municipal Corporation and police officials to finalise the details.

According to Kumar Keshav, Director (Project and Planning), DMRC, “The DMRC will execute its work with least discomfort to the commuters as well as NHAI.”
