The Ring Road Bypass Project is facing further delays as Railways has not yet given permission for construction over a 150-metre stretch,where the flyover will cross a railway line.
The designs for the stretch were submitted to Railways nearly nine months ago. The Railways,as a rule,does not allow any other agency to construct on its land. However,making a special exception for the bypass project,as it is a Commonwealth Games-related project,Railways agreed in principal to allow the PWD to construct on its land.
However,the PWD is still waiting for final clearances. As far as this project is concerned,even a weeks or ten days delay can be critical, a senior PWD official said.
PWD Minister Rajkumar Chauhan visited the elevated corridor construction sites at Barapullah Nullah and the Ring Road Bypass on Monday,and assured that work on both projects was running on time. We will be able to complete work on time,by May or July next year, Rajkumar Chauhan said.
