New Delhi, July 11 (ANI): Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit inspected the under construction Signature Bridge sites on both sides of the River Yamuna on Wednesday.
A new eight-lane bridge across the River Yamuna on the downstream of the existing bridge-cum-barrage at Wazirabad is under construction at an estimated cost of Rs.1131 crore.
The work has been entrusted to the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation.
The new bridge will connect a marginal bund road near the Khazuri Khas intersection on the eastern side with Outer Ring Road No. 45, on the western side.
The bridge will consist of a western approach main flyover, western approach loops, eastern approach main flyover, eastern approach embankment and main bridge.
DTTDC Chairman Manish Chatrath, Director DTTDC Rajesh Lilothia and other DTTDC officials, besides engineers of the construction company, accompanied Dikshit.
Dikshit made it crystal clear that no delay will be tolerated in the commissioning of the project as the new bridge will be crucial for smooth flow of traffic across River Yamuna and other major roads on both sides of river.
She further stated that this would prove to be the new landmark for the capital.
Further it will ensure much awaited relief to the commuters resulting in huge savings in travel time and fuel consumption.
She further instructed the construction company to monitor the progress on daily basis in order ensure its commissioning as per their contractual obligation to meet the stipulated deadline of December 2013.

The chief minister also directed the agency to concentrate on quality construction and aesthetic values.
