To handle the ever increasing traffic in the capital city, New Delhi’s Public Works Department has decided to build a 2.5 kms long tunnel between NH-24 and Lodhi Road to handle the projected increase in traffic volume after completion of the NH-24 widening work next year.
NH-24 terminates near Millennium Park on Ring Road. At present, there are just two routes - either towards Ashram or Bhairon Marg, available for Central Delhi-bound traffic from NH-24. And both routes are highly congested, especially during peak hours. According to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), the traffic volume is going to double once work on the Delhi-Meerut expressway is complete.
With the help of this tunnel, the traffic is sure to get reduced and things will definitely become better on the roads again!
