The DND Flyway (Delhi Noida Direct Flyway) is an eight-laned 9.2 km (5.7 mi) [1] access controlled tolled expressway which connects Delhi to Noida, an industrial suburb area. It was built and is maintained by The Noida Toll Bridge Company Ltd. The acronym DND stands for "Delhi-Noida Direct".

Construction[edit]

The project, built by the Noida Toll Bridge Company Ltd. (NTBCL) was developed under a Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) model. The Noida Toll Bridge Company promoted by the Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS).++

The project included the construction of a flyover at Ashram Chowk which after being constructed by the NTBCL would be handed over to the Public Works Department for maintenance.[2]

The other major part of the project was the construction of a 552.5 meter bridge over the Yamuna river. This bridge, which was estimated to cost INR4.08 billion (US$68.5 million) was expected to be completed by 29 May 2001.[3] The construction was however completed earlier than expected and the expressway was opened to public on 7 February 2001 .[4]

Mayur Vihar Link[edit]

The NTBCL in July 2006, started the construction of an extension to link Mayur Vihar directly to the DND Flyway. The work is by now complete and the Mayur Vihar Link Road was opened to traffic in both directions with effect from 19 January 2008.[5] [6]
