In a meeting of the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC) held recently, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has approved Rs 266.89 cr for the project, it said.

Sharing details about the GT Road project, Sisodia said the Delhi Metro and PWD are working together on this project, which “will reduce the cost of construction work by about Rs 150 crore”.


The total length of this 2+2 lane flyover from Azadpur to Tripolia Gate will be about 2.2 km and will decongest the traffic between Central Delhi and North Delhi. The elevated road will help in eliminating the traffic problem and increase road capacity.

“With the construction of an underpass at Loni Chowk in North East Delhi and a flyover between Nand Nagri and Gagan Cinema Junction, the entire 10-km road stretch between Signature Bridge to Bhopura Chowk will become signal free.


“Those travelling to Bhopura via Signature Bridge will have a signal-free road to commute. At present, vehicles take 25-30 minutes to cover this route, but after the completion of these projects, this time will be reduced to half,” Sisodia said.


Sharing that Mangal Pandey Marg is one of the most prominent roads of northeast Delhi since it connects hundreds of colonies with North Delhi, he said there is a lot of traffic load on this entire stretch.


Along with these new projects, a 1.4-km-long double-decker flyover is being built between Bhajanpura and Yamuna Vihar. The flyover is being built between Mandoli Junction and Gagan Cinema Junction and will make Nand Nagri T-Junction and Gagan T-Junction signal free.
