Nitin Gadkari inaugurates a 3-lane underpass at Parade Road junction on NH-8 in New Delhi

To decongest traffic to IGI Airport, Road Transport and Highways minister Nitin Gadkari inaugurated a three-lane underpass at Parade Road junction near Manekshaw Centre on NH-8 in Delhi on July 12, 2019.

National Highway No. 8 (New NH-48) is the prime link providing connectivity to IGI Airport from Delhi and NCR. With opening of this underpass, movement of traffic from airport to Dhaula Kuan would become signal free. The development of this signal free corridor has completed with an estimated cost of Rs 270 crore.

The underpass was completed in a record time of 112 days, and is part of NHAI's project for development of a signal free corridor from Dhaula Kuan interchange to IGI Airport.
