After the construction of these flyovers and corridors, lakhs of people passing through here daily will benefit and their time will be saved. On this occasion, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that these projects will prove to be very helpful and will prove to be a game changer in eliminating the traffic problem at these places and increasing the capacity of the exist ing road. He said that the Delhi government is committed to improve the traffic in Delhi. Our focus is to decongest Delhi’s roads, improve them and provide people with a better road use experience.
Millions of people will benefit
This corridor between Punjabi Bagh Flyover and Raja Garden Flyover is part of the Ring Road and the traffic load here is very high. Because here the traffic of Haryana comes using Rohtak Road (NH-10). Along with this, it also works to connect North Delhi with South Delhi, Gurgaon and other parts of NCR. The existing one-way flyovers and low-capacity intersections are not sufficient for the current traffic load, causing traffic jams. With the construction of this corridor, the traffic of the existing road will be shifted to the elevated road and this will benefit lakhs of people of Delhi NCR every day.
