According to sources, the entire project will cost 500 crores in which two flyovers of six-lane each will be constructed by PWD. Apart from this, already existing one-way flyover on three-lane near Savitri cinema will be made double-lane.
PWD Principal secretary Ashwani Kumar didn’t divulge enough about the project but made it clear that this project will give huge respite to the people of South Delhi.
“Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (planning and engineering) centre (UTIPEC) have given its nod to the project. UTIPEC have currently placed the entire project report on its website for the suggestion of people of Delhi. For next, one month feedback from the Delhites will be collected before placing its report before LG for his final approval,” an officer attached to the project said.
