The state government has given its nod to the construction of four-lane railway over-bridge over Wadala railway crossing. Once completed, the project would be a big relief for commuters on Jalandhar-Kapurthala road.
Public works department minister Sharanjit Singh Dhillon said that the over-bridge would be constructed at a cost of Rs 34 crore. "The over-bridge will provide a traffic route from Khojewala to Mansurwal Dona and would help in coping with the congestion in the area."
The 16-km Jalandhar-Kapurthala road, on which Pushpa Gujral Science City, Punjab Technical University and Swaran Singh Institute of Non-Renewable energy are located, witnesses heavy congestion during train timings.
"All other parts of the road had already been made four-lane and for construction over-bridge requisite approval from railways had been received and construction has started," a PWD official said.
