DMRC and PWD plans to Decongest Mehrauli-Badarpur Corridor


To provide relief to thousands of daily commuters between the Delhi and Gurgaon stretch, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and Public Works Department (PWD) has planned to develop a Triple-deck flyover to decongest the busiest route. The triple-deck train-vehicular flyover-underpass will decongest the Mehrauli-Badarpur corridor of the NCR.

According to the proposed plan, both Delhi metro and PWD will jointly develop this stretch and will soon sign a memorandum on the same.

Informing on the above development, a senior authority official has informed, “It will be an 11.2 km long road with four underpasses and two flyovers. The first two-lane underpass would be 400 meters long and would start at Anuvrat Marg and end at MB Road. The second six-lane underpass would be 500 meters in length and will decongest the busy route between Avenue 31 intersection and the Mandir Marg T-Point.”

About the third underpass, he informed that it would be developed below the flyover at Khanpur traffic signal. Lastly, the fourth underpass would be constructed between DDA Park and Tigri extension. Both of these underpasses will be 400 meters in length.

Apart from this, the authority has also planned to develop a 2.5 km long stretch that will have a double-decker viaduct wherein the Delhi metro rail will run above the flyover. The ramp will be developed between Saket G Block and Ambedkar Nagar and would end nearby Batra Hospital.

Last month only, the design of the three-deck vehicular flyover has planned, designed and submitted to the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre (UTTIPEC). However, the authorities are waiting for the center’s approval on the same.
