Delhi-Noida Toll Bridge

In February 2001, India’s first major public private partnership initiative in surface transport reached completion - an 8-lane expressway connecting Noida to South Delhi. Running across the Yamuna, this ambitious project was completed four months ahead of schedule despite trying conditions. It is now renamed the DND Flyway

Physical and financial configuration of the project:

. Project cost Rs 3710.90 million

. The first 8-lane expressway in the country with a 28-lane toll plaza incorporating state-of-the-art payment technology

. The Toll Plaza is equipped with multipurpose payment lanes that allow for payment of toll by cash or by Electronic Toll Collection (ETC). The ETC system consists of the responder with a minute chip fixed on the front of the car. The sensor will identify the vehicle at a distance of 105 metres from the tollbooth and if there is credit, will allow passage at a speed of 30 km/hr

. 6 km link with 552 metre long main bridge across Yamuna

. 3 minor bridges

A special feature of this project was the attention paid to environmental and social concerns in the design, development and supervision. The environmental safeguards used include:

. Sprinkler system at crusher site
. Watering of access routes
. Temporary sight screen
. Extensive landscaping
. Restriction in working time (in casting yard)
. Environmental monitoring
. Barapullah Nallah diversion
. Concrete noise barriers
. Provision for cattle crossings

In the making of this bridge, several innovative mechanisms like hydraulic filling for embankment, formation of citizens’ committee, use of noise barriers for protecting the sensitive receptors were used
