It will take at least two more weeks before the Barapullah elevated road is thrown open for general public. Senior Public Works Department (PWD) engineers said the department and the MCD are yet to carry out some modifications on the stretches that connect the elevated area with arterial roads.
Delhi chief secretary Rakesh Mehta, along with senior traffic police and PWD engineers, is likely to visit the road on Wednesday. Members of an NGO, which is also a part of the special task force appointed by the High Court to find solution to traffic problems in Delhi, has raised objections on traffic police's decision to not allow buses on the elevated road.
"The NGO believes that such a move will further discourage people from using public transport. As it was traffic police's request to not allow buses on this road, a joint inspection is being carried to see the pros and cons of allowing buses," a senior PWD engineer said requesting anonymity, as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
