About DF SkyWay - Features

Features


A safe and congestion-free journey between Delhi and Faridabad is the primary idea behind the creation of the dfskyway™. The project boasts the following features:-

dfskyway™ is a direct link between Delhi & Faridabad
As compared to the present 45 minutes taken due to traffic jams, the stretch will be covered in about 7 minutes even at an average speed of 40 kmph.
Cloverleaf Mehrauli Junction: Totally congestion-free drive
State-of-the-art toll plazas and a well-established Facility Building for the road users
Fully illuminated stretch and safe to drive at all times
Well-maintained Public Convenience Facilities
20-lane toll plazas at the Faridabad side and a 15-lane toll plaza on the Delhi side
Round-the-clock (24x7) safety monitoring and emergency telephone line / help-lines.

Environment

Plantation: During the construction of the dfskyway™, utmost care was taken to ensure that no harm was caused to the natural environment. To minimise the carbon footprint of construction operations, HCC, together with the NHAI, will be planting 10 times more trees than the number that was felled for the operations. The plantation drive has been undertaken along the roads in Delhi and the Haryana side of the project, as well as at the Mirzapur casting yard. Significantly, the project undertook to replant, rather than cut down, some particularly valuable trees that are remarkable for their age and species. To date, as many as 52 such trees have been successfully replanted.

Water: To minimise the operational impact on the environment during construction, HCC undertook initiatives for water recharge, recycling and reuse. As a pilot project linked to the UN Water Mandate, this included recharging the water table in the construction area, recycling the water used during construction and rooftop rainwater harvesting. At the project site, this was achieved by using storm water to recharge the underground water table under the elevated carriage way. There were recharge wells at 18 locations to divert rainwater to the ground water table through an appropriate mechanism. This process has helped to save 57 million litres of water.
