In a bid to decongest roads close to Qutub Minar, the Delhi authorities is planning to assemble a two-kilometre elevated street which can join Chhattarpur’s 100 Ft Highway to IGNOU, mentioned officers.
The choice was taken at a overview assembly held by PWD Minister Satyendar Jain, which additionally noticed Forest Division officers, PWD engineers and Chhattarpur MLA Kartar Singh in attendance, earlier this month.
“An elevated road between 100 Feet road, Chhattarpur, and IGNOU will decongest choked roads and divert traffic going towards Gurgaon and Qutub Minar. The road will be constructed over forest area. Roads are already being widened in Chhattarpur,” mentioned Singh.
Presently, automobiles travelling from Chhattarpur to IGNOU and vice versa should cross by Qutub Minar and Saket Metro station. “Once the road is built, people will be able to avoid this stretch. The project is in its conceptual stage. Once the panel submits its assessment, we will allot budget for the same,” mentioned a authorities official.
Nitin, who travels on the stretch, mentioned: “The stretch gets choked after a minor hiccup. This project will help clear up roads.”
