Elevated corridor ready to spread wings till INA market

The first-ever elevated corridor commissioned during the Commonwealth Games from Sarai Kale Khan to Nehru Stadium is now ready to spread its wings. The dedicated corridor for the players and officials of the games would now be extended to INA market under the second phase.

Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday laid the foundation stone for the extension of this elevated Barapullah flyover from Sarai Kale Khan to INA market.

Terming the latest initiative to be another feather in Delhi’s crown, Dikshit said her government has also agreed to extend the elevated road from Sarai Kale Khan to Mayur Vihar under the third phase.

The commissioning of all the phases would reduce distance between east Delhi areas like Mayur Vihar, Noida and south  Delhi.

The 3.98-km-long extended elevated road would have a dual carriageway.
Six loops would be constructed to provide connectivity from Barapullah elevated road towards Ashram, from Siddharth Enclave to Barapullah elevated road, from Lala Lajpat Rai Marg into the elevated corridor to Aurobindo Marg, near Sanchar Bhawan for movement from elevated corridor to Lala Lajpat Rai Marg, at Thyagraj Stadium from movement into the elevated corridor to Sarai Kale Khan and near Aurobindo Marg for movement from elevated corridor towards Safdarjung Airport.

Dikshit said her government has always tried to provide infrastructure of international standards in Delhi.

“Not only this, Delhi will soon get another landmark in the form of a signature bridge which would not only make the congested Wazirabad junction signal-free but also bring an appreciable change in the traffic scenario of the Capital,” she said.

Local MP Sandeep Dikshitexpressed confidence that the completion of the entire project of Barapullah elevated road would benefit lakhs of commuters every day and the traffic situation will further change with the commissioning of the monorail project in east Delhi.
