According to the NCRTC, the new facility will help residents of Ashram, Maharani Bagh, Nizamuddin and Jangpura avail RRTS services without having to worry about traffic jams. “This underpass construction has been done by box-pushing technology using precast boxes and pushing was done with the help of hydraulic jacks, without disturbing the movement of traffic.
