City govt says all CWG projects to complete in time

Brushing aside apprehensions over the city’s preparation for the Commonwealth Games, Delhi Government on Monday said all projects linked to the sporting event will be completed much ahead of the deadline.

“All projects being undertaken by the Delhi Government will be completed much before commencement of the mega event,” Delhi PWD Minister RajKumar Chauhan said.

Chauhan on Monday inspected progress of work of various road infrastructure projects and instructed officials to speed up work. He also inspected construction of a grade separator and an under pass at Azadpur.

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit also held a meeting with top officials of various departments to asses progress of work on various projects linked to the Games.

Chauhan said the grade separator and the under pass at Azadpur would substantially improve the traffic flow during the Commonwealth Games.

The main flyover in the area was inaugurated last year and now a grade separator is being constructed at the Azadpur intersection.

Officials said over 13,000 vehicles pass through the intersection per hour during morning and evening peak time.

The new grade separator at Azadpur would provide signal-free traffic movement for straight traffic on Ring Road and Mall Road, Chouhan said.

He said the new grade separator would prove to be beneficial to large number of commuters and vehicle owners not only from Delhi but also from neighbouring states.
