Outlook India reported that the Supreme Court asked the Centre to apprise it about the "correct position" of dates of completion of the ongoing construction of Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways, which are aimed at decongesting Delhi's traffic. A bench comprising justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta made the observation after it was apprised about the "discrepancies" on the dates of completion of the construction work.

While the 135-km-long Eastern Peripheral Expressway envisages signal-free connectivity between Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Gautam Budh Nagar (Greater Noida) and Palwal, the 135-km long Western Peripheral Expressway connects Kundli to Palwal via Manesar in Haryana.

Advocate Aparajita Singh, assisting the court as an amicus curiae, referred to a recent report of a committee and said there were some discrepancies about completion of the ongoing work for both the expressways.

She said that both the expressways were expected to be made open for public in April this year and the authorities should file an affidavit about it.

When the bench made a query in this regard, Additional Solicitor General A N S Nadkarni said that he would take instructions on the issue and get back to the court.

The bench asked Nadkarni to take instructions and give the correct position within two weeks.
