We will have to wait a year for the non-stop journey from Delhi to Agra. The Palwal Elevated Corridor, which became an obstacle in this journey, will be completed in the next one year. The construction of the six-lane Delhi-Agra National Highway for Rs 3 thousand crore is nearing completion. More than 20 flyovers have been built in this route, about 200 km long.
Construction of the Palwal Elevated Corridor remains an obstacle. Construction of the Rs 225-crore elevated flyover project, which runs through the heart of the city, began last week after being closed for the past one year. So far 60 percent of this elevated work started in August 2017 is incomplete. The period of bridge construction was kept in March 2019.
From Alawalpur Chowk to Agra Chowk, the 2 km long elevated road was increased to about 3 km. It was extended from Agra Chowk to Rest House and from Alawalpur Chowk to Delhi Gate. The work of the bridge being constructed at Delhi Gate is going on at a fast pace.
The L&T company that built the elevated corridor left it in the middle. The work of the elevated road which had been closed for almost a year was entrusted to another company, and work started last week. NHAI officer Manoj Kumar Bansal said that the company which constructed the elevated road had left work. Now another company has been given the job. The work is expected to be completed by December of 2021.
