Delhi is a city that is ever expanding, spreading its wings to accomodate more citizens who make it a melting pot for people from all walks of life. One of the latest and newest expansions in the city happens to be the new RTR flyover that might be open to the public by mid June. Here’s everything you need to know about the new and upcoming Rao Tula Ram Marg flyover.

What’s the update?

The said RTR flyover was initially supposed to be launched by the end of this month, but since the PWD did not deliver, they have shifted the date to mid-June. The PWD has said that as of now, only a small part of the work is remaining and that this time, they will deliver the project before deadline.

The flyover itself is said to benefit at least 2 lakh residents of the city everyday. Upon completion, the route will connect areas from South Delhi all the way to IGI airport and declutter the existing routes between these two places. Since these places see a high traffic movement, the flyover will actually help organize traffic and those not headed in the direction can divert to other routes.

Other major areas in the city that will benefit from the upcoming flyover include Gurgaon road, Palam road, Munirka Petrol Pump, R&R hospital and a few more places. The flyover comes as a boon to the city and it might just be the answer to all our prayers of a Delhi with streamlined traffic.

The facts

The flyover has been under the works for the past several years and has been delayed multiple times. Over the years, the PWD has faced several challenges in making this flyover. One of them was to create seperate roads that could be used to bypass traffic and another major issue was felling of around 500 trees that was required to make way for the flyover. Now that the process has finally been completed, we could see the flyover open for public use very soon.

The entire flyover itself has a length of 2.7-kilometers, 3 three lanes and is expected to see 2 lakh cars on a daily basis. So, if you’re going to travel on this route, be sure to keep the traffic conditions in mind.

The PWD has spent over ₹270 crores on the completion of this project alone, they have also been penalized a few times due to delay in delivery of the project.
