The Northern Railway’s plan to add two more tracks to and widen the the historic Minto Bridge will now miss the Commonwealth Games deadline due to a dispute with the MCD.
Anand Swaroop, PRO, Northern Railways said the decision to de-link the project from the Games was “unanimous”. As per plan, the MCD and NDMC were supposed to redevelop and widen the areas under their respective jurisdiction.
However, MCD claims that although most part of the project remains on paper, the civic agency has already completed most work under its jurisdiction.
Northern Railways and the NDMC however, have not carried out any work under their jurisdiction so far, due to delay in getting requisite permissions.
