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
- 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
- Round-the-clock (24x7) safety monitoring and emergency telephone line / help-lines.
: During the construction of the dfskyway™
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.
: 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.
