New Delhi: After missing several deadlines, the under-construction Rani Jhansi grade separator, an ambitious flyover project in North Delhi, is finally expected to be completed by November. 

During the review of the progress of the project by lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) commissioner P.K. Gupta said the project will be completed by November 30.

 

Mr Baijal also chaired a meeting with all stakeholders of the project at the site office at DCM Chowk to assess its progress.

The 1.6-km-long flyover from near St. Stephen’s Hospital to Filmistaan Cinema, was originally scheduled to be completed by 2010, but has missed several deadlines. “The L-G instructed the NDMC to undertake the landscaping and beautification of the space under flyovers simultaneously. He also stressed that the drainage system and lighting work of the flyover should also be expedited, to complete the entire work in a time-bound manner,” the L-G office said in a statement.

 

Mr Baijal also directed the civic body to focus on the possibility of multi-level stack parking near the flyover to resolve the perennial need of adequate parking space and also to ensure that areas which have been freed from encroachment are not illegally occupied again.

During his visit to the project site, Mr Baijal emphasised that this is a major project for north Delhi and commissioning of this flyover would benefit commuters of the national capital. The L-G was informed that the landscaping work under the flyover will be taken up simultaneously. 

The L-G also instructed Mr Gupta to undertake the landscaping and beautification of the space under flyovers simultaneously. “He also stressed that the drainage system and lighting work of the flyover should also be expedited and ensured, so as to complete the entire work in a time-bound manner,” an official statemnt said.

 

“During the visit, the L-G also observed that a number of old/unused vehicles have been parked around the site. He directed North MCD and Delhi Police to remove all the unauthorisedly parked vehicles from the site at the earliest. He further instructed that it should be ensured that no malba/garbage is thrown at the under-construction site and cleanliness is maintained,” the statement added.
