cities with big population with big industries have big congestion posing a big
pollution problem and a big help to ease congestion and consequent
disadvantages is a flyover, normally which saves fuel, time and cost by its
very strategic structure. And Delhi needs it in a big way.
Minister of State Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S Puri on Friday laid the
foundation stone of Flyover-cum-ROB at Narela in Delhi.
Speaking on the occasion,
Hardeep S Puri said that nowadays Delhi is facing several challenges and
the most critical challenge is population pressure.
All the time in Delhi
there is traffic congestion and the Government is taking several steps for
decongestion and the construction of this flyover is part of it. This
flyover would cater to around 16 lac commuters daily.
He also added that as the
Land Pooling Policy is ready to be rolled out there will be more construction
activities and surely vehicular traffic will increase.
For smooth flow of traffic
in the area, Puri also said that there is a need for Phase-4 of
Metro Project and he would like to appeal to the Chief Minister of Delhi
to prepare a proposal and submit it for finalization by Govt. of
India. Union Minister assured that the flyover would be completed in 15
