Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Infamous Ashram intersection in south Delhi has reached a point where traffic now crawls even on a Sunday afternoon when there is little or no traffic in most parts of Delhi. Adding to the woes of commuters is the ongoing construction for the Ashram Metro Station. Station will be part of Delhi Metro’s Phase III’s Pink Line— from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar.
Even the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) claims it has given back the majority of the road by pushing back its barricades, locals in the area reject these claims. Officials say that traffic from Mathura Road turning towards Sarai Kale Khan will be smoother as one additional lane will be opened by the end of January. Similarly, the stretch from Sarai Kale Khan towards Mathura Road below the Ashram flyover will also get one added lane by February.
