Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: In Delhi it is said that one of the most critical infrastructure projects is set to miss yet another deadline. This project is the 2.7km-long flyover that will run parallel to existing Rao Tula Ram (RTR) overpass.
First envisaged in 2014 the original delivery date was November 2016 was pushed back to September 2017, then to March 2018, then to June, and finally to December. But with just 56% completed in over three years, officials in the Delhi’s Public Works Department (PWD) say that the project will be “nowhere near” completion in the next two months.
These delays have greatly affected the traffic in south Delhi with the stretch from Munirka flyover to Vasant Vihar, RTR and Palam Road one of the biggest bottlenecks in the city causing inconvenience to people coming to and from Indira Gandhi International airport.
