The Delhi Noida Toll Bridge is India's first BOT Bridge Project
An Eight lane link across the river Yamuna
A 552 metre long main bridge
3 minor bridges
8 lane approach roads on embankment
A 24 lane, 300 metre long toll plaza
Tree plantation and aboriculture
Grade separated interchanges at either end.
A Brief Background
Nearly 30 % of Delhi's population resides across the river Yamuna. Noida alone is inhabited by about 4,50,000 people, 50 % of whom commute to Delhi daily, solely for purpose of work. Hence an additional bridge across the river Yamuna is needed for better access between Noida and South Delhi.
Moreover additional traffic has been estimated at 50,000 PCU's per day by 1997 which will increase to 1,50,000 PCUs per day by 2017. This makes the additional link between Nizamuddin bridge and Okhla barrage an urgent proposition
It is perceived that the project will have significant impact on the economic development of Noida and Greater Noida, facilitating further investments in the region. The following specific benefits are perceived:
Tight integration of Noida with South Delhi
Direct employment benefits for 1000 families during construction period.
Quicker access to Delhi / Noida with saving in peak hour travel time of 30 minutes. Transfer of assets to Noida worth approx. Rs. 5000 crores, free of cost, at the end of the Concession Agreement.
In the event that the Government of UP retains the facility as a toll paying after the concession period, it will receive an annual revenue in excess of Rs. 600 Crores (at then prevailing prices).
