The Delhi government on Thursday said the extension work of the Ashram flyover that is ongoing will be completed by the end of this month.
Deputy Chief Minister and PWD Minister Manish Sisodia today conducted an on-site inspection to assess the progress of construction work and instructed the officials to install additional cranes to expedite work.
Sisodia said it was a herculean task to build a flyover in the middle of such a busy road but the PWD engineers undertook the challenge and delivered.
He said the Ashram flyover extension will be dedicated to the public for their use once the construction work is completed.
The Deputy Chief Minister said after the completion of this flyover, lakhs of people commuting from Noida and other parts of Delhi to South Delhi will get rid of traffic jams.
Sisodia observed that this entire Ashram road stretch had been facing severe traffic problems.
“It is only after the completion of this flyover extension, the passengers will be rid of the traffic problem,” the Deputy Chief Minister said.
He said that it was a very difficult task to build a flyover in the middle of the road given that there was heavy traffic flow, and no permission to stop it. “But our engineers overcame all such difficulties to make the construction possible,” the Deputy Chief Minister said.
The flyover extension will be opened for public use after the completion of its construction by the end of this month, Sisodia said.
