LUCKNOW: The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has sanctioned the work for widening of 20-km stretch of National Highway-24, between the Delhi-UP border and Dasna and making it a 6-lane facility. This decision is likely to facilitate movement of traffic between residential localities of Indirapuram, Noida and Ghaziabad. 

The bids for the work have been opened and are currently under-evaluation. While the civil work is expected to cost Rs 97 crore, the cost of utility shifting and tree-cutting will require an expenditure of Rs 31 crore.

The project includes the construction of a new 2-lane carriageway, promises an improvement in the riding quality of the existing 4-lane carriageway, constructing 5 underpasses, widening 23 culverts and constructing bus-bays and other safety features.
