Haryana Dy CM to inaugurate Bajgheda flyover today

Saturday, 18 January 2020 | SR | Gurugram

Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Duyshant Chautala will inaugurate the Bajgheda flyover at village Bajgheda on Saturday. This is likely to bring relief to the residents of Palam Vihar, New Palam Vihar, Ashok Vihar, Sectors 99-115 and several other nearby areas.

Earlier, city residents had the lone option of using the Daulatabad flyover and the manually managed Chauma railway crossing, both of which remain highly congested most of the time. An amount of about Rs 42 crore have been spent on the construction of this four-lane flyover. The Public Works Department (PWD) has constructed the flyover over the Bajghera railway crossing.

The foundation stone of this flyover was laid in July 2016. The road is crucial as it connects the old city with Delhi near Najafgarh and the Dwarka Expressway. With the population in the nearby sectors increasing, the flyover is expected to ease traffic movement in the area. The flyover is likely to bring relief to commuters travelling between Delhi-Gurugram, Palam Vihar and New Palam Vihar through the Bajghera railway crossing, which was blocked in December 2016 for the construction of the flyover and the underpass. The underpass has already been opened for the commuters.    

“It is almost three years since the Bajghera crossing was closed. We travel 5km extra from New Palam Vihar through Daulatabad flyover to reach the main city. We are eagerly waiting for the flyover to open,” said a Palam Vihar resident.

 “Traffic management during the construction period of the flyover had been a big challenge for us. During the rain we were alert to manage the traffic with full efforts,” said a senior traffic police official.

With the four-lane flyover likely to ensure smooth traffic flow, local commuters will find it easier to move from one side of the railway crossing to the other.
