“The master plan for Delhi, has proposed the Urban Extension Road-II (UER), which connects National Highways 1, 10 and 8. This road was proposed to reduce traffic on the existing Ring Road and Outer Ring Road. A major part of this road has already been constructed by the DDA. A part of the road alignment, between Kanjhawala and NH-10 (Rohatk Road), has been approved in this meeting of the UTTIPEC. This new road will also have provisions for the MRTS and the BRT system,” the urban body said in a statement.
A proposal to upgrade the existing Bund Road along the canal connecting Bijwasan-Najafgarh Road to the Northern Peripheral Road, was also approved to facilitate local traffic movement between Delhi and Gurgaon. “A road improvement plan for Mangal Pandey Marg in east Delhi, from the foot of the Signature Bridge to the Delhi-UP border (Bhopura), was also approved.
