The much-awaited flyover on Noida Link Road near Mayur Vihar Phase-I is all set to open on January 25, 2019. The flyover was initially slated to be completed by September 2017, but got delayed due to several technical reasons.
Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will inaugurate the flyover in the evening and the facility will be thrown open to the public immediately. The 800m single-carriageway flyover, constructed at a cost of Rs 50 crore, will make the drive between Noida and Akshardham signal-free.
The opening of the facility will ease the chaos that motorists have been bracing ever since construction started on the stretch in April 2015. The snarls in the area were compounded by two-wheeler riders and cyclists travelling on the wrong side to avoid taking a long detour.
The flyover is a part of the ambitious Barapullah Phase-III project, which will connect Sarai Kale Khan with Mayur Vihar. The elevated road project is currently stuck due to unavailability of land on the Yamuna floodplain.
Once the road is built, the Mayur Vihar flyover would be connected with it through two loops. Officials of public works department said that construction of the loops is likely to be completed by May 2019.
