According to initial plans prepared by the UT engineering department, the project to be constructed at a cost around 90 crore will comprise of 1.75km road with 1.3km elevated stretch.

It will start from near the PGIMER and will end near the Botanical Garden, Sarangpur, after crossing over Khudda Jassu and Khudda Lahora villages. The planned total width of the flyover is around 19.1 metres, and the carriageway width will be 17.5 metres.
