The Haryana Government has said that it has agreed to a proposal of the Noida Authority to build two new bridges on the Yamuna that will connect Noida and Faridabad and ease traffic as well as travel time, media reported.
As per reports, the issue which was long pending was resolved at a meeting of the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB).
Noida Authority has been keen to construct the bridges to decongest the heavy traffic between the two states that currently moves over the Kalindi Kunj Bridge. The two new bridges will come up about seven kilometres away from the Kalindi Kunj Bridge near sectors 168 and 149A of Noida.
Commenting on the issue, NCRPB Member-Secretary BK Tripathi told the media, "The UP Government will now prepare detailed project proposals and cost sharing will be decided after discussions between the two. If there is a need the NCRPB will assist through loan financing."
