Pragati Maidan tunnel opens for traffic movement

The newly inaugurated main tunnel of the Pragati Maidan Integrated Transit Corridor Project was open for traffic on Monday. For the initial days, it will open from 8 am to 8 pm on a trial basis.

During this phase, traffic police and PWD officials will observe the movement of vehicles via tunnel to make sure that the traffic moves smoothly.

It is a 1.3-km long tunnel and five underpasses have been built over the past 4 years. It will allow passengers to travel to India Gate and other central areas to East Delhi, Noida, and Ghaziabad to ditch traffic snarls.

It has been built at a cost of 920 crores and is fully funded by Central Government.
