South Delhi's outer ring road to go under construction until April

The State's Public Works Department (PWD) is gearing up for a significant project to repair and recarpet the south Delhi stretch of Outer Ring Road, extending from Modi to Chirag Delhi. As senior officials familiar with the matter indicate, this project is slated to kick off in April 2024, with an estimated cost of Rs 150 million.

Bidding for the project's tenders was initiated on 15 March, expecting the tendering process to be concluded by 1 April. Upon finalisation, the project is anticipated to span approximately four months for completion. Officials stressed the importance of Outer Ring Road as a crucial arterial route for the city and outlined plans to conduct the recarpeting work in phases during off-peak hours and at night to minimise disruptions to traffic flow.

The project entails scraping off the existing bituminous layer and revamping the entire stretch, including the service lanes on both sides. Additionally, new layers of glowing studs and horticulture work will be integrated into the project. Outer Ring Road, a six-lane thoroughfare spanning 47km around the city with three lanes in each direction, has several segments designated as National Highways. The corridor from Modi Mill to Chirag Delhi spans approximately four-km.

Upon completing this phase, attention will be directed towards recarpeting the section from Chirag Delhi to the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, covering an approximate five-km distance. Last month, PWD minister Atishi approved the project, emphasising the necessity for upgrades due to the gradual deterioration of the roads over time. Atishi assured commuters of minimal disruption during construction, underscoring the department's dedication to the project's success.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities. OP measures the ability of PM2.5 to generate reactive oxygen species, which can cause ..
