I have drawn a map highlighting these flyovers for ease of understanding. These flyovers are marked in colour and existing flyovers near these new ones are marked in black.

Elevated roads and flyovers are being built on ORR totaling 12 km. These elevated roads will be 6 lane and built on a single row of pillars. There will 7 lane roads on the surface.

The project is divided in 4 parts:

Part 1 - Vikas puri to Meera Bagh - 3.3 km long elevated road is being built at a cost of Rs. 513 crores. (blue)

Part 2 - Mangol Puri to Madhuban Chowk - 2.6 km long elevated road will be built for Rs. 417 crores. [(Orange). This will be accompanied with a perpendicular underpass at Deepali Chowk (brown)]

Part 3 - Madhuban Chowk to Mukarba interchange - 2.6 km long elevated road will be built for Rs. 422 crores. (purple)

Part 4 - Mukarba interchange to Wazirabad - 4 flyovers totaling 4.1 km in length will be built at a cost of Rs. 612 crores. (red flyovers)

There will be two traffic signals which will left on ORR after Wazirabad - Majnu ka Tila and Chandgi Akhara. A consultant has been appointed to build flyovers on these two crossing as well (green flyovers)

Route from north Delhi and west Delhi to Noida will become completely signal free after this project since remaining portion is already signal free.

Another associated project not mentioned in this article is Shalimar Bagh flyover on Ring Road (pink) which will be taken up with this ORR project.

View this map in Google maps here

Hasn't "Part 1" (blue) already started? That means Parts 1, 2 (orange) & 3 (purple) will be built simultaneously, along with the Ring Road "Pink" project?

Also, have the flyovers at Majnu ka Tila and Civil Lines (green) been approved?

@VSK: Yes, part 1 is under construction. CM laid the foundation stone sometime back. Work on other stretches including ring road one are expected to start one after other within next few months.

Regarding flyovers at Majnu ka tila and Chandgi akhara, it seems that consultant has been appointed to conduct feasibility study and it probably isn't approved yet. Though I may be wrong in my assessment.

Anyways roads development works seem to have picked up pace again like pre-CWG era and there are enough projects now to keep photographers at SSC busy.

Yes the post-CWG lull, brought about by "empty coffers", seems to be over!

North/north-west Delhi will see a lot of simultaneous roadwork then, kind of like south Delhi before CWG. Hopefully the single pillar design will lead to reduced congestion during construction as well. People still remember the traffic horror during the construction of the Nariana elevated road, thought these areas where the new construction is beginning are not as congested!

Also, I now wonder if this single pillar technology was available during the construction of the RTR flyover, and if it could have been implemented to provide a dual carriageway there.

I believe single pier technique is not that new. In Delhi itself, a long 6 lane flyover on single row of pillars has already been built on NH-10 though the technology used might be different. In Mumbai a similar elevated road in being built near airport (SEAR).

One good thing is that this ORR project is being done before Line 8 is extended north from Janakpuri in Phase-IV. Otherwise DMRC might have built elevated lines right in centre of the road reducing scope for building such elevated roads.

Public works department orders study for underpass at Ashram

7 March 2013: A plan to decongest Ashram Chowk could be in place by July as the public works department (PWD) has finally appointed a consultant to examine the feasibility of building an underpass at the crossing.

The consultant company has been asked to put together a total connectivity plan for two corridors” the first on Mathura Road from Bhogal to Ishwar Nagar (Modi Flour Mills flyover), and the second on Ring Road from Ashram flyover to DND flyover.

"The decision was taken last week. In five months we will have the decision of the consultant on the feasibility of construction of an underpass," said PWD minister Raj Kumar Chauhan. The proposal aims to decongest the area and provide direct access to traffic moving from Bhogal and surrounding areas towards Faridabad.

The Ashram Chowk intersection provides connectivity between Mathura Road, NH2 and Ring Road (connecting Lajpat Nagar-Sarai Kale Khan and DND flyover). Despite a string of flyovers from Ashram crossing to Dhaula Kuan, traffic snarls have continued along Ring Road in south Delhi. It often takes 45-50 minutes to cover the 5km from Maharani Bagh, where the DND flyover ends, to South Extension during peak hours. The stretch also gets a lot of traffic from east Delhi and Noida for Faridabad, Gurgaon and the airport.

In the past, several plans had been proposed to decongest Ashram crossing but none of them have been implemented. In 2009, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and PWD had floated tenders to engage a consultant for preparing the decongestion plan. But the tender was later scrapped and NHAI handed it over to the PWD.

In election mode, Sheila govt ready to approve several flyover projects

10 March 2013: Making way for work to be awarded, several flyover projects are expected to get the green signal from the Delhi government in the coming week.

The flyover projects are to make Ring Road a signal-free stretch and to decongest Outer Ring Road along Vikaspuri to Wazirabad stretch.

PWD officials claim the projects will be awarded before the end of the month.

The Congress-led Delhi government has been pushing to start work on major infrastructure projects ahead of the Assembly elections, scheduled for later this year.

Among the projects on the anvil are:

z An elevated road above the 2.1-km stretch on Ring Road between Prembari Pul and Azadpur. The road will cost approximately Rs 2,485 crore.

z A 4.3-km-long road from Vikaspuri to Meera Bagh, of which 3.3 km will be elevated over five major intersections. Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has laid the foundation stone for the project.

z To decongest Outer Ring Road, a series of elevated roads — with a total length of 8.5 km — have been planned. The first elevated road will be between Vikaspuri and Meera Bagh, the second will be between Mangolpuri and Madhuban Chowk, and the third from Madhuban Chowk to Mukarba Chowk.

z A six-lane, 8-km-long parallel road will be constructed between Mukarba Chowk and Wazirabad.

"Bids have been received for elevated roads of Mangolpuri to Madhuban Chowk and Madhuban Chowk to Mukarba Chowk. The tenders will be floated again for Mukarba Chowk to Wazirabad project. The bids have also been received for Peeragari to Azadpur project,
'' a PWD official said.
Indian Express

I didn't quite understand Azadpur to Peeragarhi project. And are they changing design of Mukarba Chowk to Wazirabad from having 4 flyovers earlier to a parallel road now?

More on this technology:

Quote:
Now, one-legged elevated roads

In a first, 24.2 metre-wide elevated roads will be constructed in the capital on a single narrow column using the single-pier technique. In this, six lanes of traffic will move on top, while four lanes will be open at the ground level as well. These elevated flyways are being built on outer Ring Road and Ring Road, and will help avoid traffic congestion at the ground level, say officials.

"The single-pier technology has been used in Delhi earlier too, but for narrower flyways. Constructing 24.2 m wide elevated portions was unheard of in the city before this, but we plan to do this through careful design," said a senior PWD official in-charge of the project.

Launchers will be used to place these pier segments both longitudinally and transversely through 'pres-stressing', said the official. "Tar will be placed both ways. The central spine and two wings on either side” each nine metres wide” will be brought together. This process will begin around three months into the start of the project," added the official.

Each of the seven elevated flyways on outer Ring Road's west Delhi portion will be constructed using this technology. Even the ground level road, below these flyways, will be widened to ensure maximum space for traffic movement. "Around three to four lanes of traffic movement will be possible at the ground level on each side of the carriageway. This means that while around eight lanes of traffic will move at the ground level, six lanes will be available on the elevated portion. Thus, the space for traffic movement will increase drastically," added the official.

Apart from the road widening, provisions will also be made for a separate service lane, cycle track and bus shelters, said officials. Construction work for these elevated roads has already begun near Vikaspuri on outer Ring Road, and is expected to begin on Ring Road between Azadpur to Prembari Pul on April 9. Two other elevated roads on outer Ring Road will be constructed using the same technology” on a 2.6km elevated road between Madhuban Chowk and Mukarba Chowk starting May 3 and a 2.6km elevated road between Mangolpuri and Madhuban Chowk starting May 12.

First one looks like Indraprastha metro station and the second one looks like Ring road bypass's southern end.

Barapullah elevated road's Phase 3

Summary of this article in Hindi:

In third phase, the elevated road will be extended 4 km eastwards to Mayur Vihar including a 600 mtr bridge over Yamuna.

A meeting is being held on 5 April by UTTIPEC to approve the project.

The bridge over Yamuna will be an extra-dosed one like those used on metro lines at Indraprastha and Moolchand.

Work is under progress on second phase of the project under which the elevated road is being extended 3.8 km westwards to INA along with several entry and exit loops.

I have tried to compile a list of ongoing and proposed road projects for better tracking. I haven't included delayed projects which are still under construction since many years such as Pankha road flyover or Rani Jhansi road flyover. I believe there should be many more in the proposed category.

Ongoing (under implementation)

1. Signature bridge and two approach flyovers (western and eastern approaches)
2. 8 flyovers and elevated roads on Outer ring road from Vikaspuri to Wazirabad
3. An elevated road on Ring road at Shalimar Bagh
4. Second phase of Barapullah elevated road


Proposed

1. Rao Tula Ram marg additional flyover and an underpass at Benito Juarez road - Ring road intersection.
2. Third phase of Barapullah elevated road
3. New bridge over Yamuna at Kalindi Kunj
4. Underpass at Ashram
5. 2 flyovers on Outer ring road at Majnu ka tila and Chandiram akhara
6. Underpass at Uttam Nagar crossing

Traffic body okays elevated road near RTR

After several rounds of experiments and brain-storming, the Public Works Department (PWD) seems to have found a solution to the growing vehicular mess between Vasant Vihar and National Highway 8 (NH8) along the Outer Ring Road in south Delhi.

The Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre, the agency entrusted with the responsibility to approve projects related to road and transport infrastructure for Delhi, on Friday approved the PWD’s plan to construct an elevated road between Munirka flyover and Subroto Park.

They also approved of constructing an underpass on Benito Jaurez Marg and Ring Road to decongest Rao Tula Ram Marg and traffic intersections at Outer Ring Road and Moti Bagh.

According to the plan, the PWD will construct a three-lane elevated loop or a wing from Munirka flyover, which will run parallel to RTR flyover and land just before NH8. An underpass will also be constructed at Benito Juarez Marg near the south Delhi university campus for vehicles to take a right turn on Ring Road.

“These two measures will decongest the RTR Road, the Moti Bagh traffic intersection and RTR-Outer Ring Road intersection,” Delhi PWD minister Rajkumar Chauhan said.

Chauhan said the project will now be taken to the Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC). “After the DUAC’s approval, the department will prepare the estimates and take the government’s approval. We hope the construction will start by the end of this year,” he added. The construction will take around 12-18 months.

Ahead of the CWG in 2010, the PWD had built three flyovers between IIT Gate and NH8 along the Outer Ring Road to convert the stretch signal free.

L-G gives nod for constructing parallel flyover along RTR Marg



This new flyover will end after the existing RTR flyover, near Niryat Bhawan.

Besides this, other proposals for decongesting the area include creating an underpass from Benito Juarez Marg (BJM) towards Ring Road in front of Venkateswara College.

Another underpass will be created near R&R Hospital to facilitate movement of traffic from Vasant Enclave towards IIT.

According to PWD officials, with the clearance of these projects in the governing body meeting, the detailed proposals will now be sent to Delhi Urban Art Commission and Delhi government for approval. Delhi government will have to give financial and administrative approval for these proposals and the work can begin by end of this year.

Decongestion plan for South Delhi

The project envisages extending the existing Munirka flyover by a kilometre to beyond the RTR flyover on NH-8 side and construction of an underpass at the intersection of Benito Juarez Marg with Ring Road, which would allow vehicles coming from the airport side to take the road for reaching Ring Road.

Delhi PWD Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said the approval of the UTTIPEC, along with the formal proposal for the project, would be forwarded to the Delhi Urban Arts Commission. “Once it is approved by them, the Delhi Cabinet would have to approve the proposal and give it the financial clearance as it is the authority to clear projects costing over Rs. 100 crore.”

The new flyover will be a portal structure in the shape of an inverted ‘U’, which will come up parallel to the existing flyover and will have a nine metre carriageway. Then there will be a 7.5 metre carriageway for traffic under this new flyover.

Senior PWD official S. Srivastava said this flyover would be an extension of Munirka flyover and would take off from its top level, run for about a 1,000 metres and finally descend beyond the existing RTR Marg flyover.

Barapullah-III gets planners nod

Quote:
NEW DELHI: The phase III of the Barapullah project, which plans to connect south Delhi to Mayur Vihar, was given approval at the Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning & Engineering) Centre working group meeting and will now be reviewed at the lieutenant governor's governing body meeting on April 5.

"After approval from the LG, the plan will be submitted to Delhi Urban Arts Commission for approval," PWD minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said.

Phase III will connect INA Market with Mayur Vihar through a new Yamuna bridge proposed between DND and Nizamuddin bridge. The preliminary drawings for phase III were submitted to UTTIPEC for approval after the feasibility and technical study was completed. This extension of Barapullah to east Delhi will also ease traffic congestion on Nizamuddin bridge and DND and provide an express connectivity.

"This will be a boon for travellers between east and south Delhi as they will be able to bypass the congestion on Ring Road. The journey time will also be reduced dramatically," added Chauhan. The hydraulic study will be conducted for the new Yamuna bridge by a Pune-based research institute after which the plan will be submitted to DUAC and the Yamuna committee, officials said.

The Phase-III extension will have several interconnections, with six loops (along with the main Barapullah extension).

The existing Barapullah road from INA Market will be extended straight to Mayur Vihar Phase I through a new bridge proposed across Yamuna and the commuters will be able to descend near the Mayur Vihar Metro station. In the reverse direction, commuters from Mayur Vihar can climb onto the Barapullah near the Metro station.

Two loops will connect Barapullah to the Ring Road. While one will ascend from Ring Road near Sarai Kale Khan to Barapullah for commuters headed towards Mayur Vihar, the second loop will descend from Barapullah for vehicles coming from Mayur Vihar headed towards Ashram.Meanwhile, two loops will also connect the extension of Barapullah near Mayur Vihar to Akshardham and Noida. While one loop will descend from Barapullah towards Akshardham and IP Extension on the carriageway for vehicles travelling towards Mayur Vihar, another loop will ascend to Barapullah on the carriageway towards Sarai Kale Khan and beyond for vehicles coming from Noida.

Two loops will also connect to a flyover that has been proposed on the direction from Mayur Vihar towards Akshardham, parallel to the current Mayur Vihar flyover.

According to this article, the underpass proposed above in RTR improvement project will be a fork shaped underpass with one entry (from Benito Juarez Marg) and two exits (one towards San Martin Marg and another towards Ring Road).

The underpass will look like this:
