To decongest various arterial roads in south Delhi and cut down travel time, the Delhi government has decided to construct an elevated road to connect Chhatarpur with INA market. For this, the government is to carry out a feasibility study soon. The Delhi PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chouhan said the government has started the process of appointing a consultant to prepare the feasibility report for the project.
Chauhan said that the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has asked his department to carry out a study and accordingly started the process to appoint a consultant for the purpose. He said the plan is to connect the proposed elevated road with the Barapullah elevated road in INA which will facilitate seamless connectivity between Chhatarpur and Sarai Kale Khan in East Delhi.
Dikshit had announced the government’s plan to construct an elevated road between INA market and Chhatarpur in February. If constructed, the elevated road would help decongest various roads connecting AIIMS, INA market, Dhaula Kuan and Qutub Minar, besides significantly cutting down travel time for the motorists.
