Speaking on the occasion, Hardeep S Puri said that now a days Delhi is facing several challenges and the most critical challenge is population pressure.
All the time in Delhi there is traffic congestion and the Government is taking several steps for decongestion and the construction of this flyover is part of it. This flyover would cater to around 16 lac commuters daily.
He also added that as the Land Pooling Policy is ready to be rolled out there will be more construction activities and surely vehicular traffic will increase.
For smooth flow of traffic in the area, Puri also said that there is a need for Phase-4 of Metro Project and he would like to appeal to the Chief Minister of Delhi to prepare a proposal and submit it for finalization by Govt. of India. Union Minister assured that the flyover would be completed in 15 months.
