Sharing the information, PWD Minister Ms Atishi said that providing relief from traffic jams to the people of Delhi is the Kejriwal Government’s top priority. In this direction, PWD has completed the maintenance work of the Chirag Delhi flyover ahead of schedule. Now that the work on both carriageways has been completed, the flyover will be open for traffic from tomorrow.
The PWD Minister said that Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal himself kept a close watch on the maintenance work of the Chirag Delhi flyover and was monitoring it regularly. Under his direction, the work was carried out at twice the speed, and as a result, the flyover will be open for the public from tomorrow. Along with this, PWD Minister monitored the progress of the flyover on a daily basis.
Ms. Atishi said, “Due to frequent rain in the past month, the flyover maintenance work had to be halted several times, causing delays in the timeline. However, PWD showed its commitment by working round the clock and completing the work ahead of schedule. We are proud that PWD has taken another step forward in the direction of making Delhi traffic jam-free.”
