In a significant development for Ghaziabad, a longstanding demand of the locals from Modinagar and Meerut regions is set to be fulfilled. An announcement was made regarding the establishment of a new connectivity route from Moiddinpur near Chudiyala to Kharkhoda on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway. This project has received a nod from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), following consistent requests from the villagers and the backing of Baghpat MP Satyapal Singh.

The strategic development will also result in connecting the Delhi-Meerut Expressway with the Ganga Expressway, boosting connectivity and potentially accelerating economic growth in the area. Prior to this, a cut was made at Bhojpur on the Delhi-Meerut Expressway as per the villagers’ demand, which set the precedent for the current project. Since then, residents of the Modinagar area have been advocating for a similar connectivity initiative in Chudiyala.

In response to the villagers’ requests, MP Satyapal Singh from Baghpat, which encompasses the Modinagar Assembly constituency, proposed the cut near Chudiyala during his discussions with Union Minister Nitin Gadkari. Ghaziabad MP and Union Minister V.K. Singh also championed this cause to facilitate the local populace’s convenience. Following their efforts, the NHAI meeting held in Delhi last week approved the proposal.

As part of the construction of package-5 of the Delhi-Meerut Expressway, an interchange will be provided at the Moiddinpur-Kharkhoda route. This will include the creation of two loops, one for getting on and the other for getting off the expressway. The completion of package-5 is scheduled for March 2024.

Residents of villages in the Ghaziabad and Meerut regions, such as Solana, Nagla, Khanpur, Setkuwan, Dhanauta, Chhatri, Kharkhari Dhantala, Chandrapura, Bhawanpur, and many more in the Modinagar area, stand to benefit greatly from this development.

The new interchange near Chudiyala is expected to not only provide better travel connectivity but also accelerate development within the local villages. This could stimulate industrial and commercial activities, enticing major companies to establish their units in the region, thereby creating economic benefits for the local community.

Confirming the progress, local MP and Union Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways V.K. Singh stated that the proposal for connectivity at Chudiyala near the Delhi-Meerut Expressway has been approved. He assured that following the completion of the required documentation process, work on this project would commence soon.

This infrastructural development is poised to serve as a catalyst for the region, offering enhanced access, spurring commercial activities, and providing the locals with substantial economic opportunities. It’s a project that reflects the government’s commitment to regional connectivity and development, promising to transform the way people commute and do business in this part of Uttar Pradesh.
