Reliance Infrastructure (RInfra), a part of Reliance Group, has completed the widening of the Gurgaon to Faridabad and Ballabhgarh to Sohna sections of road at a cost of INR8bn ($143.8m) in Haryana, India.

RInfra, through its special purpose vehicle GF Toll Road, has upgraded Gurgaon to Faridabad into a four-lane road, as well as reconstructed and widened the two-lane Ballabhgarh to Sohna segment.

The 66km-long corridor includes Gurgaon-Faridabad, Ballabhgarh-Sohna, Pali Bakri and Surajkund.

The Gurgaon to Faridabad corridor connects major industrial and tourist destinations of New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan states.

The project was executed on a build, operate and transfer basis and power will be shifted to the Government of Haryana after the completion of the 17-year concession period.

Reliance Infrastructure CEO Lalit Jalan said that the company has completed the widening and started operations of the sixth road project, which will ensure smooth traffic flow from Gurgaon to Faridabad and Ballabhgarh to Sohna.

"This will increase commuting convenience and connect centres of tourism, international airports, industrial zones and places of economic importance," Jalan added.

"Some sections of the corridor with dangerous curves and steep rises have been realigned, so that commuters can maintain the minimum design speed and enjoy a comfortable ride.

"The corridor will witness approximately 36,000 vehicles every day, which is expected to double in the next five years."

The average vehicle speed on the corridor will increase to 60km/hr from 12km/hr, reducing travelling time across the stretch from around five hours to an estimated two or less.

The corridor will also have 11 bus shelters with various commuter-centric facilities, such as drinking water kiosks and truck lay-bys.
