Delhi’s Upcoming 14 Km Corridor Will Give Direct Access To IGI Airport From South Delhi

Delhiites rejoice as now travel to the IGI airport is going to be much easier from South Delhi. An upcoming 14km elevated corridor from Barapullah to Mahipalpur bypass in South Delhi is aimed at avoiding congestion in the neighborhood areas. The six-lane corridor will provide direct access to Indira Gandhi International Airport for commuters travelling from Central, South, and East Delhi.

The Road Corridor Will Start From Barapullah Flyover And Pass By Aurobindo

According to the plan, the road corridor will start from Barapullah flyover and pass by Aurobindo Marg, Brigadier Hoshiyar Singh Road, Africa Avenue, Vivekanand Marg, Nelson Mandela Road, Vasant Kunj Road, and Mahipalpur Bypass, and touch down at National Highway-8. The corridor will ensure that commuters from east Delhi have almost signal-free access up to the airport.
