Okhla residents face the heat following the ongoing work of Lajpat Nagar-flyover on Ring Road with many residents who use phatphat to Jama Masjid complaining of getting stuck in traffic snarls for longer time than usual.
Earlier in a statement, it was stated that the Public Works Department is undertaking the work of rehabilitation of Lajpat Nagar Flyover from January 1, 2018 onwards. In the first phase, one carriageway from Ashram Chowk to Moolchand will remain closed from January 1 to January 14.
In the second phase, the carriageway from Moolchand to Ashram Chowk will remain closed from January 15 to 28 this month for the repairs. As one of the carriageway of the flyover will remain closed, the traffic bound to go over the Lajpat Nagar Flyover towards Ashram will take the adjoining road at the ground level.
There will be congestion on the adjoining roads due to this repair and rehabilitation work, stated the Delhi Traffic Police.
“To avoid congestion and delays, the road users and motorists are advised to take Mathura Road, Ashram Chowk, Ring Road, Mool Chand flyover/Lodhi Road,Bhishm Pitamah Marg or Ring Road while commuting from South Delhi to Central/New Delhi and vice versa. People are requested to plan their journey in advance to avoid any kind of inconvenience,” it said.
