In an attempt to enhance connectivity between the cities of Noida and Greater Noida, the twin authorities have given in principal approval for the construction of four new bridges across the River Hindon. These facilities will not only bring the two cities closer but also provide connectivity to Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Delhi. The cost of the project will be shared by the Noida and Greater Noida authorities. The bridges will be constructed by the Uttar Pradesh State Bridge Corporation Limited. Each bridge is expected to come at a cost of Rs 55 crores. The new bridges will be 210 meters in length and will have a carriageway of 18.5 meters width on each side. The service roads for the existing 8-lane bridge, which is yet to be opened for commuters, will be 7.50 meters on each side. One of the bridges will be constructed between Noida’s sector 150 via Illahbas village near sector 86 to sector Chi-Phi up to 80-meter wide road, which joins the two cities. A second bridge will be on the road between Greater Noida’s Knowledge Park-2 and 3 near the 75-meter wide road, which is proposed to connect to Faridabad and Noida’s 150 meter wide road. A third bridge will be located from near LG roundabout in Greater Noida to Knowledge Park-3. A fourth bridge between Greater Noida’s sector 1 and Techzone-4 and Noida’s sectors 112 and 115 has already been constructed but has been proposed to be extended by service roads on either side of the bridge.
