Prime Minister Modi has opened the Pragati Maidan Integrated Transit Corridor project



Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the main tunnel and five underpasses of the Pragati Maidan integrated transit corridor in New Delhi on Sunday.

According to the Office of the Prime Minister (PMO), the Integrated Transit Corridor project is an integral part of the Pragati Maidan renovation project.

The integrated transit corridor project was built for more than Rs 920 million and is fully funded by the central government.

Its purpose is to provide uninterrupted and uninterrupted access to the new state-of-the-art exhibition and congress center being developed at Pragata Maidan, thus facilitating the easy participation of exhibitors and visitors in the Pragata Maidan programs, the PMO said in a statement.

In addition, it will ensure the smooth movement of vehicles, which will greatly help save time and costs for passengers. It is part of the government’s overarching vision to provide people with an easy life by transforming urban infrastructure.

The main tunnel connects the bypass with the Indian Gate via the Purana Qila road that runs through Pragati Maidan. The six-lane divided tunnel has several uses, including access to the large basement car park of Pragati Maidan. A unique component of the tunnel is that two transverse tunnels were built under the main tunnel road to facilitate the movement of traffic from both sides of the car park.

It is equipped with the latest world standards for smooth traffic, such as smart fire management, modern ventilation and automated drainage, digitally controlled CCTV and public information system inside the tunnel. This long-awaited tunnel will serve as an alternative route to the Bhairon Marg, which runs well above its carrying capacity and is expected to take more than half of the traffic load of the Bhairon Marg.

There will be six underpasses along the tunnel – four on Mathura Road, one on Bhairon Marg and one at the intersection of Ring Road and Bhairon Marg.
