According to the Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Satyendar Jain, this would be the first skywalk project on such a scale undertaken by the PWD, as reported by the Indian Express.
- “The project work will start in about three to four months after the structural drawings and revised estimates are drawn up. It should take about a year to be completed. We expect it to be ready by December 2017,” says Satyender Jain, Public Works Department (PWD) Minister
- Constructed at the crossing on the Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, the skywalk will give exclusive connectivity to Pragati Maidan Metro station. The project is a part of the Delhi government’s plan to redesign its roads, which will make pedestrians a priority. The project also has a space in front of the Supreme Court, where pedestrians can spend time and grab a bite at shops selling food and beverages.
