New Delhi: The Delhi government on Friday approved eight important infrastructure projects worth Rs 1,572 crores, including construction and expansion of three state-run hospitals, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said.

Mr Sisodia chaired a meeting of the Expenditure Finance Committee (EFC) where he approved the projects, which include the construction of 12,000 additional classrooms in schools.

He said the project of construction of an integrated campus of GB Pant Engineering College will be done in two phases and it will take two years to complete the project. The infrastructure will be rebuilt in a modern way and will cost around Rs 526 crores, Mr Sisodia said, adding the rebuilt campus will be better than its neighbour — the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-Delhi).

The new campus will have upgraded hostel for 400 students, academic blocks, administration, canteen, libraries etc.

In the first phase, whole academic, administration and hostel will be done while in the second phase, activity blocks, canteen, central blocks etc will be constructed, Sisodia said.

The second project is related to traffic, he said.

“Traffic is a big issue between Ashram and DND flyover. Under this project, the government will extend the Ashram flyover to DND flyway and from there, one lane will be extended to Sarai Kale Khan to reduce traffic congestion,” he said.

The project will be completed in 15 months and cost around 128 crores, the minister said.
