UP Govt sets deadline, city to have 10 more flyovers, overbridges by March 2021
The state government has set a deadline of March 2021 for completion of 10 flyovers and overbridges, besides an elevated corridor from Shaheed Path to Amausi airport, in the state capital.
The deadline was set by deputy chief minister Keshav Maurya during a meeting with PWD and UP State Bridge Corporation officials. Maurya, also PWD minister, directed the officials to complete these ambitious projects within stipulated timeline.
“These 11 projects, once completed, will make a big difference in city’s traffic scenario by decongesting the roads and streamlining traffic,” managing director of bridge corporation UK Gehlot said
Assuring that the projects would be completed within the deadline, Gehlot said, “Work on the Rs 802.45 crore projects has started and Rs 602.04 crore already released for them.”
Gehlot said despite some delay by Airport Authority of India (AAI) in giving permission for the Rs 134-crore, four-lane, 1.1-km-long elevated Shaheed Path-airport corridor, it will be completed by the deadline (March 2021).
“This corridor is very important for traffic movement, particularly VVIP traffic, towards the airport,” Gehlot said. The elevated road will start from 18-km-mark of Shaheed Path and connect the airport via Behsa village, he added.
