New Delhi: As per an advisory by the city police, the exit of passengers from Rajiv Chowk Metro Station will not be permitted from 9 pm onwards on the New Year’s Eve, news agency ANI reported on Sunday. However, passengers will be allowed to enter the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station after 9 PM for boarding the trains.
This is to enable the authorities to maintain law and order during New Year celebrations in central Delhi.
Interchange facility between Line-2 (HUDA City Centre – Samaypur Badli) and Line-3/4 (Dwarka Sec-21 NOIDA City Centre/Vaishali) will continue as usual at the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station till the end of revenue services.
Services at all other Metro corridors and stations will continue normally, it added.
Last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated some key projects in Gurugram, Haryana. First up was the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal expressway or the Delhi Western Peripheral Expressway (DWPE) which took 15 years to complete. This expressway would help divert heavy polluting vehicles from Delhi.
A sum of Rs 6,400 crore has been spent on the DWPE expressway project and 3,846 acres of land was acquired at a cost of Rs 2,788 crore. A government spokesperson said that initially, it was meant to be made four-lane but got stalled. When the state government resumed it, it made the expressway six-lane.
The stretch from Kundli to Manesar has four RoB, 14 bridges, 56 underpasses, seven intersections and seven toll plazas. The Manesar to Palwal stretch is 53 km long and has 32 underpasses/agricultural vehicular underpass, three intersections and four toll plazas. The objective of this expressway is to provide a high-speed link of northern Haryana with southern districts and provide an uninterrupted high-speed link for traffic, especially commercial traffic, from Haryana to neighbouring states. It would also decongest the road traffic from Delhi and thereby reduce pollution.
