New Delhi, March 3 : Commuters waiting for the signal-free ride from Delhi’s East to South will have to wait for another one-and-a-half year as the under-construction Barapullah Phase-3 elevated corridor project, connecting Mayur Vihar-1 to Sarai Kale Khan, is still facing the land acquisition hurdle.
The Public Works Department (PWD), which is carrying out the construction work through an agency, missed its three deadlines in 2017, 2018 and 2020.
Delay in acquiring the land portion along the Yamuna floodplain forced the PWD-hired private construction firm to stop the work midway.
Now, the hired agency, though has started the project work at Sarai Kale Khan, estimated that the work will be completed in the next one-and-a-half year if the land acquisition obstacle is resolved.
However, the PWD is yet to set any deadline for the project.
Speaking to the IANS, the office of PWD Minister of Delhi government said, “The government has succeeded in acquiring lands from the individual landowners at Yamuna floodplain in some parts and the process for the acquisition of the remaining part of land is underway.”
