New Delhi, July 15 

Commuting towards the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport from south Delhi and Noida will be much easier from Tuesday as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is scheduled to inaugurate the Rao Tula Ram (RTR) flyover tomorrow.  

The newly constructed 2.7 km flyover branches out of Munirka flyover and ends before Army Research and Referral Hospital near Subroto Park close to National Highway-8.

The construction of the elevated road was started in November 2014. It was to be completed by November 2016, but missed several deadlines.

“On Tuesday, the Chief Minister is scheduled to inaugurate the Rao Tula Ram flyover which has been built by the Public Works Department (PWD),” said a senior Delhi Government official. According to the PWD, the RTR flyover had been built at a cost of around Rs 310 crore due to the repeated delays to the project for several reasons. — PTI
