NEW DELHI: According to the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), the facade illumination for the G20 activities at the Safdarjung Flyover over-deck and the under-deck of the Ranjit Singh Flyover has been finished. Additionally, it has installed 32 flagpoles on the Ranjit Singh Flyover and 45 decorative light poles with heritage post tops on the Safdarjung Flyover.
For the Ranjit Singh Flyover to look better, the NDMC also installed an underground network in place of the above electrical lines.
According to NDMC vice-chairman Satish Upadhyay, "the 32 flag poles, each measuring 9.5 metres tall, have been installed along the parapet walls of the Ranjit Singh Flyover near Barakhamba Road."
"New ornamental poles and electrical installations have been added to the Safdarjung Flyover's central edge. We wanted to give these two flyovers a fresh, updated look because they serve as entrances to the NDMC area from south and old Delhi", Upadhyay said. In December of the previous year, the project was declared.
According to Upadhyay, drivers using the service lane next to the Lalit Hotel can view the color-changing facade lighting that has been installed for the under deck of the Ranjeet Singh Flyover. On top of the flyover in this area, there are streetlights.
"At the Safdarjung Flyover, the over-deck crash barriers now have color-changing facade lighting. Following the G20 events, Rs 5 crore was spent on lighting work. It excludes any repairs", according to an NDMC representative.
The G20 Parliament20 summit will take place in Delhi on June 5–6, while the G20 Foreign Ministers' Meeting was held there on March 1–2. "The project included the removal of interpole and overhead power supply cables, followed by the installation of new underground power supply cables at the Ranjeet Singh Flyover", according to Upadhyay.
