PWD unveils ₹150-cr worth of flyovers in South Delhi

Elevated Corridor
The PWD in Delhi has planned multiple flyovers and underpasses in Saket area starting from Press Enclave Road to Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg as the stretch provides access at Khirki Village, Hauz Rani, Saket, Malviya Nagar and Pushp Vihar and also connects the commercial hubs. The redevelopment plan, which involves an investment of ₹150 crore, includes an 800-metre underpass at the Chirag Delhi intersection where Outer Ring Road meets Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg going to Panchsheel Enclave. Further down, PWD will build a km-long flyover at the point where Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg meets Press Enclave Road. Apart from this, it will also construct an underpass from Press Enclave to Lal Bahadur Shastri Road at Madangir where PWD will widen the road and create space for hawkers and pedestrians. A double-deck flyover will also be built on Mehrauli-Badarpur Road which Lal Bahadur Shastri Road eventually joins. The approach to the left turning flyover will be created at the T-point where the two roads meet connecting Delhi with Gurugram and Faridabad apart from linking residential areas such as Tughlakabad, Tigri, Khanpur, Saket and Mehrauli. Keeping in mind the heavy bus traffic, this road section needs to be redesigned and PWD hopes to allocate enough space for cars and other vehicles to park on the stretch. Heavy pedestrian movement from Malviya Nagar metro station to Saket District Court slows down traffic. PWD is also open to plans to decongest other corridors such as the entire Aurobindo Marg, Mathura Road (Neela Gumbad to Badarpur flyover), Outer Ring Road (Chirag Delhi crossing to Savitri flyover), Sardar Patel Marg (Gyarah Murti to Rajokri border) and Dhaula Kuan.
