The connectivity to Terminal 3 is set to improve with two new link roads, Northern Access and Central Spine, expected to be open for traffic on Sunday.
While the Northern Access road starts right after the Dwarka underpass and will connect you to Central Spine via tunnel, the Central Spine roads originate from Mahipalpur and connect commuters to the eight-lane approach road of T3.
“Currently, we experience heavy congestion on National Highway 8, even when there were no domestic operations at T3. Traffic on the congested stretch of NH-8, from Palam to Radisson roundabout has increased manifold, after shifting of domestic carriers to T3,” said an official of the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL).
Once the Northern Access road gets operational, the traffic from Dwarka and west Delhi can proceed to T3 without having to get onto NH-8.
With its commissioning, commuters would be able to avoid this congested stretch on NH 8. The new Northern Access road would ensure that three entries and exits to T3 are available for traffic from the city.
Decongestion of the main NH-8 at the roundabout near Radisson and Mahipalpur junctions will help passengers, airline and regulatory agency staff and the entire airport community — the service providers for smooth flight operations.
