After the flyover opens, it would be a relief for motorists headed to the ISBT and parts of Central Delhi from Ghaziabad, north-east and east Delhi areas.
Officials said the two flyovers are likely to cut travel time between Shahdara in east Delhi to Kashmere Gate ISBT by at least 10 minutes.
The construction had started in February 2019 and was to be completed in March 2020, but the project had hit a hurdle initially when construction was banned due to pollution and later because of riots in the region in February. Further the project was stalled due to the coronavirus-induced nationwide lockdown.
