    Observations:

    Residents Welfare Association has represented for considering the solutions suggested by the Association for solving the traffic problems in GK-II area with particular reference to the Savitri Cinema Complex to be re-opened as per the decision of the Hon'ble High Court.

    Association has suggested the following solutions-

    •  Underpass/tunnel connecting GK-II with Press Enclave Road.
    • Extension of Chirag Delhi Fly-over up to Nehru Place Fly-over.
    • Free turn towards Nehru Place
    • Noise barrier from Savitri to Masjid Mor sub-way
    •  Metro linkages from IIT to Nehru Place
    • The FOB under construction on Outer Ring Road with an escalator.
    •  Access towards E-Block, GK enclave.

    Observations:-

    1. The problem of additional traffic passing through Savitri junction is visible and the problem shall be accentuated after the reopening of Savitri cinema.
    2.  Congestion at M-block market entry/exit is visible however parking is not a major problem.
    3. Underpass below Jahapana forest may be difficult as this is a reserved forest although it would offer a good bypass for thoroughfare. The entire corridor plan needs to be prepared together with the  connectivity at the junctions (Tuglakabad and Press Enclave) In the first instance the  clearance from Forest/Environment dept. GNCTD may be obtained. 
    4.  Detailed study needs  be taken up for streamlining the traffic in the area.
    5. PWD, MCD, DMRC were requested to study the proposal and present their views in the Governing Body of UTTIPEC. They were also requested to examine the feasibility of the proposals in a time bound manner, for further consideration in the next WG meeting.
