Here’s some good news for all us Delhi dwellers. Soon, you'lll be able to travel between Sarai Kale Khan and Ghazipur in ONLY 5 minutes! *Say Whaa!*
Here’re More Deets | NHAI is planning to throw open an 8.5 Km elevated flyover to the public in the first week of May, which will decongest East and South Delhi significantly. The project is part of the 96 Km Delhi-Meerut expressway which will be a signal-free highway for people travelling from Delhi to Ghaziabad.
The flyover is the first leg of the expressway which will connect Sarai Kale Khan bus terminal to UP Gate at the Delhi-Ghaziabad border. The six-lane flyover will offer dual access to commuters who can go directly to the UP Gate and further towards Ghaziabad from Sarai Kale Khan. The other route will give access to ITO via Pragati Maidan.
Once the flyover is open, residents of South Delhi going towards Ghaziabad can reach within 10 minutes from Sarai Kale Khan. *Awesome!* Currently, people have to cross the congested Yamuna bridge and Ghazipur Mandi and then head on for Ghaziabad. The new flyover will have no signals and no crisscrossing of traffic. *Phew*.
Apart from this stretch, the Delhi-Meerut expressway is divided into three parts. The second part is going to connect UP Gate to Dasna and will have a total length of about 19.28 Km. The third part is a 22.3 Km stretch that will connect Dasna to Hapur and the fourth part will run from Hapur to Meerut. Wow, looks like there’s alot up NHAI’s sleeve!
Meanwhile, we can’t wait for the flyover construction to be complete so that we can have our share of 5-minute travel between Sarai Kale Khan and Ghazipur. *Yay!*
