It is not Rajpath alone that has over the years been renamed in Lutyens Delhi -- once the capital of the British empire -- but several other English names in Rajdhani Dilli have made way for Indian ones. As the Indian government set about making New Delhi its capital, many roads were named and renamed after leaders of modern India, in the process of erasing the memory of the British empire. Rajpath as its shown in New Delhi streets map, the ceremonial boulevard of the country that runs from Rashtrapati Bhavan through Vijay Chowk to India Gate, right up to the National Stadium, was once called Kingsway.
The Motilal Nehru Marg, which houses the likes of the Chief Minister of Delhi, was once called York Road when Edwin Lutyens started building New Delhi in 1912. New Delhi, the capital of the modern India, turns 100 tomorrow and a lot of things have changed in the city, the names of streets being just one of them. Teen Murti Marg as you can see in New Delhi streets map, that houses the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, was once known as Roberts Road and the present day Rafi Marg was known during the British Raj as Old Mill Street. The original name of Tees January Marg, which got its name after Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948 at Gandhi Smriti, is Albukerd Marg.
Within about 10km from each other in central New Delhi lie three streets named after women. Once you have crossed leafy Amrita Shergill Marg, made your way past Kasturba Gandhi Marg and stopped at Mother Teresa Crescent Road, you will have to look pretty hard to find another named after a woman. The streets named after Shergill, a celebrated painter, Mahatma Gandhi wife Kasturba and the canonized Nobel peace prize laureate used to be called, respectively, Ratendone Road, Curzon Road and Willingdon Crescent—a throwback to the British Raj as its mentioned in New Delhi streets map.

Inner Ring Road is one of the most important "state highways" in New Delhi. It is a 51 km long circular road, which connects important areas in Delhi. Owing to more than 2 dozen grade-separators/flyovers, the road is almost signal-free. The road is generally 8-laned with a few bottlenecks at certain stretches, which are being removed. The road has already achieved its carrying capacity of 110000 vehicles per day and would require an addition of more lanes to fulfill needs of increasing traffic by 2011. Outer Ring Road as you can see in New Delhi roads map is another major artery in Delhi. The road which was almost neglected till early 2000s is now an important highway that links far-flung areas of Delhi. The road is 6-8 lane and has grade-separators and a large number are under construction as a part of project to make the artery signal free. The road along with the ring road forms a ring which intersects all the National Highways passing through Delhi.
