in a serious category.

PM to inaugurate Western Peripheral Expressway today
Western Peripheral Expressway: Much have been said about rising pollution in the National Capital, Delhi. The government has once again come up with a method to combat the main problem behind air pollution -- vehicular smoke.
Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi inaugurated Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) western peripheral expressway on Monday, 19 November 2018, in order to cut down the extra traffic in Delhi.
Since the expressway stretches from Kundli to Manesar -- connecting Haryana -- a lesser number of trucks will now cross the national capital. This indeed will reduce the traffic and pollution in Delhi.
Interestingly, two rows of shrubs will be planted in the median. Also, on each side, two rows of trees such as Neem, Arjun, and Sheesham would be planted, a Haryana government spokesman was quoted saying in a PTI report.
Also, PM Modi flags off the 3.2 km-long Ballabhgarh-Mujesar Metro rail link, which will be a great help for the people travelling from Delhi to Faridabad.
The prime minister inaugurated the Rs 580 crore Metro link in Sultanpur village in the district.
Ballabhgarh becomes the fourth city in Haryana to get metro connectivity after Gurgaon, Faridabad and Bahadurgarh.
Will this cut down the traffic and pollution problem?
