Travelling from west Delhi to Haryana is all set to become a smooth affair with the Public Works Department (PWD) planning to construct an underpass at Peeragarhi Chowk.

The PWD has also decided to make the Rohtak Road-Peeragarhi Chowk signal-free to ease out traffic jams.

Currently, the entire stretch is marked by traffic snarls with commercial vehicles using the stretch to make their way to Haryana.

This stretch connects outer Delhi with central Delhi and making it signal-free will help motorists to a large extent.

A feasibility study will also be conducted by the department to find out the traffic situation and whether the underpass will be able to ease traffic jams or not.

"Despite having a flyover on the outer Ring Road — from Viskaspuri to Mangolpuri — the entire stretch is marred by traffic jams. Though there is a proposal to have a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, we have decided to construct an underpass till that shapes up," said a senior PWD official.

Currently, there is a Mundka Metro line and a flyover on the Rohtak Road-Peeragarhi Chowk.
