Delhi government has proposed to widen ITO signal to handle the high volume of traffic. The road will be widened by covering a drain adjacent to it. The new proposed road would provide a signal-free flow of traffic from ITO to Tilak Marg, reports Times of India.
Once the plan gets a go-ahead by the PWD, it would be sent to the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure Planning & Engineering Center and Delhi Urban Arts Commission for clearance. If approved, it would be put before the Delhi cabinet.
The flyover will be constructed for the traffic coming from Vikas Marg to go towards DDU Marg. It will start from the end point of theexisting narrow road behind Vikas Minar and will merge into DDU Marg. Traffic coming from Vikas Marg to go to Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg will take the second proposed flyover and reach DDU Marg.
With ITO signal becoming one way, traffic coming from BSZ Marg would not be allowed to go straight towards Tilak Marg. These vehicles would have to take a left towards Vikas Marg and then a right to take the road on the rear side of Vikas Bhawan to reach Tilak Marg, the report said.
