Two foot overbridges will construct on Nelson Mandela Marg and Tamil Sangam Marg in South Delhi by the Delhi Government’s Public Works Department(PWD). The department has got financial and administrative clearance from the government, Officials said.

Rs 4.98 crore has been sanctioned by the government for the construction of foot over bridges. Officals said that both the facilities will be disabled-friendly with elevators and besides flight of stairs.

The PWD officials said that people are demanding over bridges there because of heavy pedestrian moves in the areas.

“The move is aimed at improving pedestrians access across important roads in the city. The pedestrian bridge on Nelson Mandela Marg will be constructed near Baba Ganga Nath Temple, while the other bridge will construct near Mohan Singh market on Tamil Sangam Marg in RK Puram,” a PWD official said on Tuesday.

To provide smooth access to the pedestrian, there are around 80 foot over bridges and over 50 subways currently in the city.

Last year. the PWD had approved FOBs at several places including Sri Aurobindo Marg near Hauz Khas, near Shakurpur village on Ring Road, ISBT Sarai Kale Khan, Mayapuri and Rao Tula Ram Marg.

“Building more and more FOBs was not the solution but there was need to build pedestrian facilities at surface level,” said Sewa Ram, professor of transport planning at the school of planning and architecture.
