The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has started work for Phase-III, Line-7 from Mukandpur to Shiv Vihar. It is constructing the South Extension Metro Station on southern carriage of Ring Road opposite South Extension Market by cut and cover method and the work will take around two and half years.
DMRC has planned to provide 11 meters wide modified carriageway on both sides of central verge on Ring Road instead of 14 meters presently available for the motorists. In view of this, traffic congestion is likely to occur on Ring Road around the construction site from AIIMS flyover upto Andrews Ganj flyover in both directions.
Thus the Delhi Traffic Police have planned diversion and alternative routes to ensure smooth flow of traffic around construction site. General traffic on modified carriageway of Ring Road around construction site will ply on six lane divided carriageway.
“From August Kranti Marg, no HTV, MMV, LGV will take left turn on Ring Road from 11 am to 5 pm. From Bhisham Pitamah Marg, no HTV, MMV, LGV will be allowed to take right turn on Ring Road.

The commercial vehicles coming from IIT, Yusaf Sarai side from 9.30 pm to 7.30 pm will not be allowed to take right turn on Ring Road. They may take left turn towards Moti Bagh on Ring Road.
