Manage Traffic Properly Near Rao Tula Ram Flyover: High Court

The court was hearing a plea by the resident's welfare associations of Vasant Vihar challenging the Public Works Department (PWD)'s decision to build a three-lane flyover parallel to the single-lane flyover on RTR marg.


New Delhi:  Delhi High Court has asked the city government and traffic police to ensure that "traffic management is done properly" near the Rao Tula Ram (RTR) Marg flyover on the Outer Ring Road.

"Has traffic management (been) done properly," a bench of justices Badar Durrez Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva asked Delhi government and the traffic police after the court was informed that the area was witnessing serious traffic snarls due to gaps in the barriers placed to prevent traffic coming in from adjoining colonies.

The court was told that due to gaps in the barriers kept on the road to regulate vehicular movement, cars were entering Outer Ring Road through the adjoining Vasant Vihar colony at various places near the RTR flyover, causing major jams.

It was also submitted before court that the road connecting RTR marg to Mahipalpur was not navigable, and this was further leading to the traffic chaos in the area.

The court was hearing a plea by the resident's welfare associations of Vasant Vihar challenging the Public Works Department (PWD)'s decision to build a three-lane flyover parallel to the single-lane flyover on RTR marg.

The court will now hear the matter on November 18.

On October 28 last year, the court had said that "the alternative measures discussed for de-congesting the traffic to and from the airport, particularly, at the T-junction joining Nelson Mandela Marg and the Outer Ring Road as also the entry point after Ryan International School from Mehrauli- Mahipalpur Road to the DDA road shall be made operational within two weeks."

It had said the authorities shall endeavour to make operational every route they intend to use during diversion of traffic while building the flyover.

Vasant Vihar residents associations have sought that a six-lane flyover be built in the same location by demolishing the existing one while PWD plans to build a three-lane elevated road from Munirka to Signals Enclave, which will also run parallel to the RTR Marg flyover.
