A four-lane flyover at the Dhaula Kuan junction on National Highway 8 in New Delhi was inaugurated by a high official on 9th March 2019 which is expected to reduce 30 minutes of waiting time at the traffic light during peak hours. Earlier, to cross this three-kilometer stretch, it took approximately 10-30 minutes due to recurring jams. This even played a part in the increase of pollution in the city. Designed and studied thoroughly, this time the problem of excessive traffic jam is expected to lessen to an extent.
In addition, a project worth Rs 5000 crore has been initiated to reduce the pollution in Yamuna river to get rid of water and air pollution soon. Other than this, there are nine projects which are being put into action in order to reduce the problem of traffic jams in Delhi NCR which comprises of 22 kilometers 6-lane elevated corridor on Gurugram-Sohna Road, the 8-lane Delhi-Panipat highway from Mukarba Chowk to Panipat on NH-1, the 29 km 8 lane access controlled Dwarka Expressway, the package II, III and IV of Delhi-Meerut Expressway, 124 km 4 lane Khekra-Eastern Peripheral Expressway junction to Shamli-Saharanpur (NH-709 B) and the Rangpuri Bypass to connect Dwarka/NH-08 with Vasant Kunj-Nelson Mandela Road. The prime link providing connectivity to IGI Airport from Delhi NCR region is NH 8. This flyover was completed in a record time of just 136 days.
Mr. Pradeep Aggarwal, Founder and Chairman, Signature Global says, “All these developments is going to be a boon for the real estate sector as with the advancement of better connectivity, people will start taking interest in investing in the properties of that region. Developers will also bring up their new projects thereby making those regions a hub gradually.”
