Union housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri and Delhi lieutenant governor Anil Baijal inaugurated a 1.68-km-long flyover-cum-road overbridge at the railway crossing between Narela and Bawana in north Delhi on Tuesday.

The 389-crore project, constructed by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), is aimed at providing seamless connectivity between Narela and Bawana — two important residential and industrial hubs. The railway crossing, DDA officials said, is a major traffic choke point.

Puri tweeted, “In this era where completion of projects on time is the new norm, I was delighted that the Road Overbridge at Narela for which foundation stone was laid on 29 Dec 2017, was inaugurated today.”

The six-lane elevated corridor has been constructed on Urban Extension Road-1, around 2.5 km away from NH-4. This will connect NH-44 (GT Karnal Road) and Bawana-Auchandi Road. Nearly 80,000 vehicles pass through the railway crossing daily.

The project, DDA officials said, is crucial for the development of Narela where the land-owning agency has close to 30,000 flats under various stages of construction. DDA is planning to develop Narela as the next sustainable sub-city and is a priority area.

“Funds have been allocated for transport infrastructure projects... [like] the DMRC’s Rithala-Narela corridor with Alipur in Narela. We have also allocated funds for the construction of UER –II stretch in Delhi that is being executed by the NHAI,” said a DDA official.
