NEW DELHI: With the foundation work almost complete at ITO skywalk, significant progress has been made on the structure connecting Tilak Marg and Mathura Road. PWD officials said that around 30% of the work for the project — touted as Delhi’s longest foot overbridge — is now complete and the new deadline has been fixed for June-end.
PWD has planned space for cafes, canopies and common areas on the skywalk
PWD has planned space for cafes, canopies and common areas on the skywalk. Officials, however, said while the space would be kept aside for cafes, whether these could be made operational would be decided later.
Additionally, an FOB will also be constructed on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg near Hans Bhawan. The initial estimate of the overall project cost of the skywalk is around Rs 45 crore but to achieve the May deadline, officials will have to work round the clock. “The difficult part is over. We will now start assembling the pre-fabricated parts,” an official said, arguing that the deadline was still achievable.
