East Delhi corridor improvement project nearing completion

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: With the opening of the railway over-bridge near Anand Vihar bus terminal this past week and the scheduled opening of the under-pass at Anand Vihar bus terminal on Friday, the corridor improvement project undertaken by the Public Works Department on Road No. 56 in East Delhi is now nearing completion, Delhi PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan announced here on Thursday.

Mr. Chauhan said work on the railway over-bridge has been completed in a short span of just 10 months.

As for the under-pass near the ROB, he said it would be commissioned on Thursday. The under-pass is 13.05 metres wide and 36 metres long. It has been constructed with the push box technique to give a U-turn to traffic near the railway bridge. This under-pass would make Dabur crossing signal-free as the traffic coming from Ghazipur, Karkardooma, Anand Vihar metro stations and railway station and going towards Dabur crossing would now be able to take a U-turn through it.

That would only leave one incomplete portion, the under-pass leading towards Ramprastha. The Minister said as part of the project, three foot over-bridge would also be constructed on the road and work of installation of the pillars was already on. The cost of the total project is Rs.200 crore, he informed.

The widening of Road No.56, connecting Ghazipur crossing on National Highway-24 to Apsara border is being taken up to ensure smooth traffic flow and would cater to traffic bound to Apsara border from Anand Vihar bus terminal, Patparganj Industrial Area, Ghaziabad and Noida and vice versa.

The Minister said a three lane flyover was also constructed near Tata Junction.
