Gurgaon, May 2: Huda will shift Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar’s statue at Badshapur Chowk to a plot in the nearby colony to remove the last obstacle in the completion of Southern Peripheral Road. The relocation of the statue is slated to be completed by May 15. Huda is planning to finish SPR by June.

“The statue will be shifted to a plot in the nearby colony and people of the locality have already given consent for the same,” Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav said.

According to Huda, it is crucial to shift Ambedkar statue to enable the construction of elevated corridor on Sohna Road, which crosses SPR near Badshapur Chowk.


The decision comes after state PWD minister Rao Narbir Singh and Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav visited Badshahpur Chowk, and reviewed the site where the statue is to be shifted.

The PWD minister Rao Narbir Singh informed that nearly 5 Km long- elevated highway will be constructed on Sohna Road, which will begin from Subhash Chowk and go beyond Badshahpur village on this highway.

Developers have welcomed the move.

“Realty in sectors 69-79 will get a boost with the development of SPR. It will connect these sectors with Golf Course Road, Faridabad and South Delhi reducing travelling time for office goers,” said Manav Gopal, head of sales, Mapsko group.

Harinder Dhillon, VP-Sales, DLF, said, “The much- awaited connectivity will ensure an easier commute to the new sectors of Gurgaon. We are confident that residential and commercial projects along the SPR will get a boost.”
