The Delhi government has approved repair and redevelopment projects worth Rs 12 crore in the national capital.
The projects include repair and redevelopment of the Andrews Ganj and Nehru Place flyovers at a cost of Rs 2.10 crore and culverts at six locations of the Najafgarh drain from Bharat Nagar to Timarpur for Rs 9.90 crore.
"The Public Works department is regularly assessing the infra at various locations and ensuring their maintenance from time to time so that no inconvenience is caused to the commuters," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
"Following the same, two new projects have been approved recently. The repair and redevelopment of the Andrews Ganj and Nehru Place flyovers will increase the life of the flyovers by up to 20 years. The repair and redevelopment of culverts at the Najafgarh drain will increase the life of culverts and make it safer for the commuters," he added.
Work on the flyovers will be completed in six months. The repair of the culverts, which had been pending for a long time, will be completed in nine months.
Sisodia directed the officials concerned to complete the work within the stipulated time and ensure no inconvenience to the public during the work.
