Gurugram, July 24 (IANS) Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday inaugurated an eight-lane flyover on the Delhi-Gurugram Expressway, fulfilling a long-standing demand.
The 1.4-km flyover on National Highway 48 was thrown open to public and is expected to tackle traffic jams at the busy Hero Honda Chowk in Gurugram. An underpass under construction as part of the flyover project would be completed by December.
Vehicles moving to Sector 10, Kadipur, Basai, Jhajjar and Sultanpur will not have to take the Kherki Daula toll plaza route since a straight road to these areas has now been provided.
Similarly, commuters moving towards Jaipur and Ajmer, Ahmedabad and Mumbai would also be facilitated.
The Chief Minister told the media after the inauguration that two of the several ongoing projects in Gurugram were nearing completion and would be opened on August 14.
Union Minister of State for Planning and Urban Development Rao Inderjeet Singh and Haryana PWD Minister Rao Narbir Singh were also present.
