National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has decided to construct an elevated corridor between the two points instead of separate over bridges at the two places in Haryana’s Palwal. The project aims to reduce the heavy volume of traffic between Alawalpur Chowk and Agra Chowk in the state. Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar said several steps have been taken by the district police to ensure smooth flow of traffic on National Highway 2. He said “no-entry” has been enforced in the Palwal city area for commercial and heavy vehicles during peak traffic hours, which extend from between 8-10 A.M., 2-4 PM and again 5-7 PM to avoid congestion. Extending the no-entry time for commercial vehicles from 8 AM to 8 PM is under contemplation, he added. Apart from this, commercial vehicles coming from Sohna side and moving towards Faridabad and Ballabhgarh Industrial area are being prevented from coming to NH-2 by diverting their movement towards Prithla via village Dhatir. The Chief Minister said effective coordination would be made with the NHAI for the earliest possible completion of projects in the area falling in Palwal town. He said the length of NH-2 falling under the municipal area of Palwal town is about 12 kms and it has 10 major inter-sections.
