Ensuring smooth movement of the vehicular traffic on the National Capital's roads, Delhi government has started the work on an elevated road stretch between Prembari Pul and Azad Nagar in North Delhi involving an investment of Rs. 247cr. In this connection, Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit laid the foundation stone of 2.10km road stretch recently, said official sources adding that the elevated road will come up on the central verge along the Ring Road. The new road will make the movement of traffic along the Ring Road between Azadpur in north Delhi and Nizamuddin in the downstream southern areas of the capital signal free. The new road will have facilities such as cycle track on either side, rainwater harvesting, street-lighting and lot of greenery and after the construction of this road, the intersections at Shalimar Bagh, Ashok Vihar and East Shalimar Bagh would also become signal free, claimed PWD minister Raj Kumar Chauhan.
