Recognized as India’s longest elevated road of the country that was inaugurated at the hands of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the road will connect Raj Nagar Extension in Ghaziabad to UP Gate.
Christened as the Hindon Elevated Road Project, it aims to ease traffic flow from New Delhi to Ghaziabad.
Former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was quick to point out that the project had been conceived during his time as Chief Minister even as the incumbent ruling party emphasized how much of the implementation of the work began after Yogi Adityanath took over as the Chief Minister.
Stretched for a good 10.3 km long, the elevated road actually cuts down on time taken to travel between Raj Nagar Extension in Ghaziabad to UP Gate.
While the total cost of the completed project is estimated to be Rs. 1,147 crore, the structure stands on 228 single-pier pillars.
The Hindon Elevated Road is constructed on Transit-oriented development (TOD) basis, a kind urban planning that aims at public transportation made easily accessible to residential, business and leisure space.>
