Traffic snarls expected as repair work on Lajpat Nagar flyover begins

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Motorists in south-east Delhi are likely to face trouble for at least 15 days as repair work on the second carriageway of Lajpat Nagar flyover started today.

The flyover had developed gaps in December last, thus exposing the motorists to various accidents.

The city traffic police blocked vehicular movement on the carriageway from Moolchand to Ashram, for 15 days.

According to the police advisory, the traffic movement will remain closed on the flyover up to May 30.

It asked the motorists to use the Barapullah flyover for going towards Sarai Kale Khan and DND, and those going to Faridabad to use the Outer Ring Road.

The repair work of the flyover was to start from

January 15, but it was postponed due to Republic Day celebrations. It was then rescheduled for February 1, but was yet again delayed over unavailability of an alternative route to divert commuters.

Vehicles going towards Ashram from Moolchand have now been diverted from under the flyover, leading to traffic chaos. Traffic jam was also witnessed in South Extension, Moolchand and Lajpat Nagar.
