The roads are planned such that heavy traffic can move about without much hindrance,” the official said.

The schemes have a special link to those clusters that are part of the Delhi-Mumbai industrial freight corridor. “In few of these TP schemes which lie close to the DMIC corridor we have provisioned for wide service lanes along the freight corridor that will help transport goods between designated clusters,” adds the Auda official.
