In its plea, NHAI had said that currently the route
between Delhi and Meerut (NH-58) had frequent jams causing lot of inconvenience to traffic between the two cities and the project will reduce the time of travel to 40-45 minutes from three hours at present.
NHAI had moved NGT in view of a 2015 order saying that construction of “new barrages and roads, railway and metro bridges and embankments and bunds” should not be permitted.
However, in exceptional cases, “a critical impact of their potential impact on flood aggravation and environmental clearances should be made mandatory”, it had said.
The Delhi-Meerut Expressway will be built through public- private-partnership mode and slated to be operational by March 2018. The project starts from National Highway-2 at Ring Road in Delhi and ends at Meerut in Uttar Pradesh. PTI PKS ABA ZMN
