Monday, 11 February 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Commuting would be easier for the people of national Capital especially for those who travel daily between Delhi and Ghaziabad as the Delhi Government on Sunday laid foundation stones of the much awaited flyovers at Shastri Park and Seelampur. These flyovers will facilitate a signal and hassle free corridor from Uttar Pradesh (UP) border to Shahdara via Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT).

Once the projects get completed, the travel time would be reduced from existing 1:15 hours to 45 minutes as well as save around 13,802 man hours per day. Also, around 2,625 litres of fuels costing up to Rs 4.97 lakh will be saved per day.

“The cost of both the flyover is Rs 303 crore and is expected to complete by mid of 2020, said a senior Government official. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Sateyender Jain inaugurated the construction work of both the flyovers on Sunday.

The flyover proposed to be constructed at Shahstri Park will be of six lanes while the one which would be constructed at Seelampur will be of two lanes. The project which was proposed by the PWD got green signal in a Cabinet meeting held last year.

Addressing the gathering Kejriwal said that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is working day and night for the welfare of the people even after getting troubles from the Opposition. “BJP and the Congress which they were not able to do in 70 years, we have done and shown progress in just four years. 21,000 classrooms, up gradation of hospitals and roads and flyover in just four years,” said Kejriwal.

Also as per the proposal, the length of Seelampur flyover would be 12, 00 metre, while the length of Shastri Park Junction flyover will be 700 metre.

“The PWD will also update the existing roads by widening the existing underpasses by three metres,” said the PWD official adding that the Seelampur Chowk will also be widened with providing signal free left and U-turn towards to decongest the area.
