Delhi can surely be called the city of endless traffic jams and road blocks. The overpopulated metropolitan is home to millions of tourists and visitors, who, like locals, get stuck in the traffic jams more often than not. The civic bodies in Delhi have been trying to decongest the roads and help the citizens breathe a sigh of relief whichever way they can. With this in mind, diverting the traffic by building flyovers on top of flyovers seems to be the way to go.

This is how flyovers in Delhi are getting an uphaul:

The Double Decker Flyover

Mumbai’s Double Decker Flyover

North Delhi’s traffic is the stuff of legends, people are legitimately scared of the red lights and the stretch of road which lies between the Metcalfe House and the gurudwara at Majnu ka Tila. To decongest the said stretch, Delhi’s Public Works Department (PWD) is planning to construct two flyover overlapping each other.

According to reports, the flyovers would overlap between the entire stretch of road, while one would stort from Metcalfe House and end at the gurudwara at Majnu ka Tila while the other would start from the gurudwara at Majnu ka Tila and end at Metcalfe House.

This is a one of a kind construction in the city and would be the third such flyover to be built in the country. The flyover is expected to be completed by 2021.

Vertical Gardens at Flyovers

Another major update involving the flyovers is the fact that the civic bodies in Delhi are planning to make them green and environment friendly- a step towards living a sustainable life. The civic bodies plan to install vertical gardens at 11 South Delhi flyovers to not only make the city more beautiful but also fight pollution. These installations would be the first phase of the effort which includes covering buildings such as garbage collection centres in the vertical gardens, reports TOI.

Another wonderful aspect of the garden would be the fact that the plants would be watered with recycled water and the plants would be chosen to bear with the harsh Delhi heat. Creepers would also be installed along the railing f the flyovers to provide a splash of green relief to the concrete jungle.

The flyovers which fall under the upcoming green blanket include Sarai Kale Khan, Lajpat Nagar, Andrews Ganj, Nehru Place, Kalkaji, Savitri, Raja Garden and the upcoming Rani Jhansi flyover.
