Jagmohan Garg news noted from Tilak Marg railway station to ITO Metro station will soon become a reality as the expenditure finance committee gave its nod to the project on Friday. Work is expected to start this year.
Two other projects cleared by the committee include strengthening of Ring Road from Mayapuri flyover to Punjabi Bagh flyover and upgrading of roads and drains in Mangolpuri Industrial Area.
The skywalk and FOB were designed through a competition in which the winner was awarded Rs 2.5 lakh. The Centre has agreed to finance about 80% of the project, while the remaining funds will be provided by Delhi government.
Jagmohan Garg also added that the project is estimated at Rs 54.84 crore of which the ministry of urban development has committed Rs 43.47 crore. The remaining funds will be given by Delhi government. PWD will now start working on a detailed project report after which tenders will be taken out. We expect to start work before the yearend.
