The Public Works Department in Delhi has announced that construction work on Phase-III of the Barapullah elevated project in the Yamuna floodplain is set to commence. The project aims to provide seamless connectivity between Mayur Vihar-I and Sarai Kale Khan, where the corridor will merge with the existing Barapullah Phase-I to offer signal-free connectivity between East Delhi and AIIMS.
The construction work includes building two massive wells on the banks of the Yamuna River to support the bridge, which poses a significant challenge to be completed within the next year. The agency has already built the base of the piers and will now erect the structure above. To construct 690 meters of the elevated corridor, the PWD required approximately 8.5 acres of private land. The land was handed over to the PWD in January of this year, and construction work on this crucial part of the elevated corridor will commence within the next week.
