Delhi Road Project
The Kalindi Kunj bypass road project, which will reduce travel time between Delhi and Faridabad besides decongesting Ashram Chowk and involve an investment of Rs. 750cr, has been placed on fast track with the lieutenant governor of Delhi clearing the alignment of the project, sources in the PWD said, adding that the project had been submitted to the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre for approval. According to the designs submitted by the consultant, the bypass will start near the DND flyway loop and run parallel up to Batla House. Up to this point it will be at grade and after that the bypass will run along the unused old Agra canal and will be made on stilts as it will be on the river bed. After that it will again be at grade and linked with the Badarpur bypass.

It may be recalled that the project was conceived in 2002, will start on Ring Road near the DND flyway loop and end near the Badarpur border. Traffic moving from east Delhi and Noida towards Faridabad will completely avoid Ashram, which would get decongested for local users. The total length of the bypass will be 14km and the first at-grade section of the bypass will be 2 km, the stilt section will be 6km long, while the second at-grade section will also be 6 km long. However, the executors failed to get land from the UP government which delayed the project, said PWD sources adding that the department is in touch with HUDA as a part of about 700m stretch which falls on the Haryana side and it is yet to be decided whether construction on that part will be undertaken by Delhi or Haryana governments.
