Good for people travelling from one end of the city to another end

“I own a shop in the Bhawar kuan area. I use Ring Road to commute. Now it is easy to go. Earlier, I met with an accident due to the construction work because of heavy traffic flow on this route. A biker rammed into my activa during night time when I was returning home.”
