Public Works Department Minister Rajkumar Chauhan on Wednesday visited the Outer Ring Road to inspect three flyovers on the stretch between IIT and NH-8. He also asked the traffic police to study the traffic signals in the city and remove extra signals to reduce traffic jams.  

“Traffic signals have been put up every 500 metres on the road. For example,between Mukarba Chowk and Rohini there are five traffic signals. The traffic police should conduct a study to remove unnecessary signals. If it is planned well we will not need so many flyovers,” Chauhan said during his visit.

Chauhan also assured that the stretch (between IIT and NH-8) will be signal-free by October this year.

Talking about the sewage overflow at Munirka intersection,Chauhan said,“The problem is due to blockage of sewage,which is being handled by Delhi Jal Board. We are,meanwhile,building a stormwater drain,which will be ready in 15-days,” he said.
