The Delhi Government has approved repair and rehabilitation projects worth Rs 12 crore in the national capital.
The projects include the repair and rehabilitation of Andrews Ganj and Nehru Place flyovers at a cost of Rs 2.10 crore and culverts at six points of the Najafgarh outflow from Bharat Nagar to Timarpur at Rs 9.90 crore.
“The Public Works Department regularly checks the infrastructure in different places and ensures their maintenance from time to time so that there is no inconvenience to commuters,” Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia said.
“Following this, two new projects were recently approved. The repair and refurbishment of the Andrews Ganj and Nehru Place flyovers will extend the lifespan of the flyovers by up to 20 years. The repair and rehabilitation of culverts on the Najafgarh outflow will increase the lifespan of culverts and make them safer for commuters,” he added.
Work on the overpasses will be completed in six months. The long-awaited repair of the culverts will be completed in nine months.
Sisodia instructed the officials concerned to complete the work within the stipulated time and to ensure that the public would not suffer any inconvenience during the work.
