The extended flyover will allow passengers to bypass three traffic signals between Ashram Chowk and DND Flyway, making vehicular movement smoother. There will be three lane ramp for traffic going from south Delhi to Sarai Kale Khan, while the remaining three will be for vehicles going from ITO and Sarai Kale Khan to south Delhi.

The flyover will also get LED lights to light it up while exquisite artwork will be done on the pillars. A total of 146 girders will be installed on the existing pillars of the flyover, but due to the existing challenges, hardly 2-3 girders are installed in a day. The flyover extension work started in June 2020.
