The extension of the Barapullah elevated corridor, a long-pending project in Delhi due to a land acquisition issue, has finally been resolved as the Public Works Department (PWD) has taken possession of the necessary land. Work on the ₹1,068 crore, 3.5 km stretch, which connects Mayur Phase I to Sarai Kale Khan, is expected to commence shortly.
Upon completion, the extension will provide a signal-free route for commuters traveling between East and South Delhi, as well as Noida and Ghaziabad. The stretch will feature four lanes, dual carriageways, footpaths, cycle tracks, street lights, and space for kiosks. The PWD is currently constructing the flyover, with half of the viaduct already erected. The remaining portion has been pending for the past five years.
The Barapullah elevated corridor is expected to greatly improve transportation and commuting in the area once completed.
