Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Tuesday expressed her disappointment over neighbouring Uttar Pradesh and Haryana's "lukewarm" response in completing the eastern and western peripheral expressways, envisaged to decongest the capital's traffic.

The eastern and western peripheral expressways were envisaged to reduce congestion of traffic in Delhi and for developing areas in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

"Delhi government agreed to provide 50 percent initial cost of the Rs.1,307 crore cost for the expressways. It has already released its share of Rs.653.50 crore, though the response from neighbouring state has been lukewarm. The project has not been completed in stipulated period resulting substantial traffic jams and wastage of fuel, Dikshit said at a workshop organised by the National Capital Region Planning Board.

She said the expressways are extremely important as a million cars pass through Delhi which is already burdened with lakhs of vehicles registered in the city itself.

The chief minister also urged the Planning Board to facilitate completion of eastern and western peripheral expressways to stop the movement of heavy transport vehicles, which are not registered in the capital, through Delhi.
