New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Double-Decker Flyover is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The flyover will be built on the Mehrauli-Badarpur Road, the Azadpur-Rani Jhansi intersection, and the Saket-Pul Prahaladpur stretch.
The double-decker flyovers are a one-of-a-kind venture taken by the Delhi government and the construction is being taken by the Delhi metro rail corporation (DMRC) and PWD Public Work Department to relieve traffic blockage and boost public transport. The upper deck of the flyovers will feature a metro viaduct which will be taken care of by DMRC while the lower deck will have a six-lane road flyover taken care of by PWD. This will enable commuters to go great distances by metro while simultaneously providing a handy option for automobiles to travel short distances.
PWD minister Atishi said, “This unique model of a double-decker flyover connecting Yamuna Vihar and Bhajanpura has resulted in savings of crores of rupees. This is a densely populated area, which has been utilised efficiently by the authorities. After the completion of this project, the people in the surrounding areas will not have to face long traffic jams. The flyover and metro’s integrated model will prove to be better for the environment too.”
The construction of flyovers is being done in two stages. The first phase of the project, which is underway, entails the building of the pillars and the viaduct. The second phase of the project, which will begin later this year, will involve the construction of the road flyover. This is a massive task, but it is critical to strengthening Delhi’s transport infrastructure. The flyovers will help to alleviate traffic congestion, improve air quality, and make it easier for people to navigate around the city.
