Good news for Delhiites! Commuters will soon be able to reach Noida from Delhi in a much shorter time as the much-awaited Ashram flyover extension is set to be inaugurated next week. Around 95 per cent work has been completed and the rest is in advanced stage and likely to be completed in next few days.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will inaugurate the flyover extension on March 06, 2023. The six-lane flyover extension will benefit around 13,500 vehicles during peak hours.
The construction work of the flyover extension started in June 2020 after the approval of the cabinet. The total cost of the project is Rs 128.25 crore while the total length of the flyover including the ramp is 1,425 metres.
The extension of the flyover will reduce the travel time between the two cities. This will benefit office goers, students, patients etc. Commuters can bypass the three traffic lights between Ashram Chowk and DND, which will ease vehicular movement. At present, vehicles traveling from Noida and Ghaziabad to South Delhi have to face traffic jams from DND loop to Ashram Square.
About Ashram Flyover
Due to Mathura Road and the Delhi-Noida Direct (DND) flyway being connected to it, there is heavy traffic on the Ashram flyover every day.
Earlier this year, the Delhi government decided to change the condition of roads in the national capital. Talking to a presser, the Chief Minister revealed that the first year of implementation of the project would involve an expenditure of Rs 4,500 crore and every year thereafter Rs 2,000 crore would be spent.
