NHAI is planning to open up an 8.5 kms elevated flyover which will, without any doubt, decongest East and South Delhi. The project is part of the 96 kms Delhi-Meerut expressway which will connect Sarai Kale Khan Bus Terminal to UP Gate at the Delhi-Ghaziabad border. This one is gonna be a signal-free highway for people travelling from Delhi to Ghaziabad and will also give dual access to commuters who can directly head towards UP Gate and further on to Ghaziabad from Sarai Kale Khan. And once this flyover is flung open to the public, South Delhiwalas will be able to reach Ghaziabad within 10 minutes from Sarai Kale Khan!
