The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has opened one side of the flyover from Delhi to Jaipur at Hero Honda Chowk on NH-8. The work on the entire flyover is being completed at a fast pace, and is likely to be open to the public by June 30th. The move is expected to ease congestion and reduce traffic snarls and thus benefit residents of the nearby sectors.
According to NHAI Project Director, Ashok Sharma, the Delhi-Jaipur side will be used to divert Jaipur to Delhi traffic for the next few months till the work on the next lane is completed. “Commuters from Delhi to Jaipur will keep using the four-lane ground-level service road,” he said.
“Work on the Jaipur-Delhi side is on the fast track. We’ve finished 70 per cent of the work. The remainder will be completed in three months,” said NHAI Supervision Consultant RS Yadav.
