After going through minor setbacks because of scarcity of labourers, the work for extension of Ashram flyover to DND, is now again on monitor.
An official of the Public Works Division mentioned, “To this point we had been in preparation levels. However we’re about to begin in just a few days. We are going to start by widening the street.”
“Arranging expert labourers amid a pandemic is a job. However since most of them have returned to the town now, we will get on with the work. The rise in labour charges has not affected us since we have already got contracts with corporations,” he mentioned.
The venture was introduced in December 2019 and is anticipated to be accomplished by its preliminary deadline of June 2021, mentioned the official.
The price of the venture is Rs 12,879 lakh, and it’ll cowl roughly 1,450 metres.
The venture, officers mentioned, is a vital hyperlink between West, South, East Delhi and Noida.
The extension is geared toward lowering the heavy circulate of site visitors from Noida to Lajpat Nagar within the mornings and from Lajpat Nagar to Sarai Kale Khan or Noida within the evenings.
Additional, the Kilokri intersection typically chokes the roads, resulting in jams on the Ring Highway.
“Ring Highway-bound site visitors shall be diminished to a sure extent. These touring from Kilokri in the direction of Okhla will even get some aid as they won’t should take a U-turn from Sarai Kale Khan,” mentioned the official.
The six-lane flyover, comprising two three-way lanes (one up and one down), will join the prevailing Ashram flyover to DND.
Additional, a three-lane down ramp will join Ashram to Sarai Kale Khan and one other up-ramp shall be constructed from close to the DND loop, shortening the route for the automobiles coming from Sarai Kale Khan in the direction of Ashram.
