No stoppages between Airport and Okhla

With the opening of the third Munirka flyover for commuters on Thursday, the road from the Okhla flyover to Indira Gandhi International Airport has become signal free.

Inaugurating the flyover, Delhi Public Works Department Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan reiterated that all the Commonwealth Games related projects would be completed within the stipulated time as constant monitoring was being done to accelerate the pace of work.

The Minister said Delhi would showcase its world-class infrastructure during the Commonwealth Games. “We are confident that the visitors during the Games would be able to carry a good impression about the city with their memorable stay,” he said.

With Outer Ring Road being the main arterial road as it caters to important residential and non-residential areas, he said a need was felt to improve the corridor starting from National Highway-8 intersection to Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, so that Outer Ring Road could become signal-free up to Okhla flyover.

The scheme for “Corridor Improvement of Outer Ring Road from IIT Gate to NH-8” was accordingly undertaken and the project comprised construction of a flyover at Africa Avenue and Aruna Asaf Ali Marg intersections; another at Vivekanand Marg, Nelson Mandela Marg and Poorvi Marg intersections; and the third flyover at Rao Tula Ram Marg and Benito Juarez Marg intersections. All the three flyovers have now been completed and opened to traffic.
