The Noida Authority is set to start work on a six-lane bridge, parallel to the existing Okhla Barrage, this month bringing a sigh of relief to thousands of commuters who travel between Delhi, Noida and Faridabad. The construction of the Rs 150 crore bridge is expected to be ready in two years.

The proposed 574m long bridge will be supported by 15 pillars, with a 41m distance between two pillars. It will also have a central verge and pedestrian pathways on each side. A cycle track is also on the cards. The new bridge will be at a distance of about 40m from the Metro track, which is currently under construction. It will have approach roads from Delhi and Noida. The new bridge will now be located below the Metro line. Also, a link road from the bridge has been proposed till the Mahamaya flyover.

Earlier an agreement between Noida Authority and Noida Toll Bridge Company Limited — that has built and runs the DND Flyway — prohibited a competing facility for a period of 10 years. Since DND became operational in February 2001, the agreement expired in 2011. This allowed the Authority to take up the project on priority and it gave the green signal to the new bridge in February 2011 by selecting a consultant and fixing a budget.
