The need of the flyover from Bikram Chowk to Satwari will ease the traffic of these already choked areas like Bikram Chowk, Asia Crossing , Green Belt, Main Stop Gandhinagar, Nai Basti. Due to this severe traffic, people also miss their flights while being trapped in long traffic jams at these areas.
The project has formulated the 2nd phase of this project. The compensation amount has been worked out to the tune of nearly Rs 110 crore. Presently, the project is worth Rs 72 crore having length of 1.3 kms from Bikram Chowk raising point near main Tawi bridge up to Presentation Convent school Gandhinagar while the new project will have a length of 1.7 kms besides two limbs of 500 meters each up to landing points and it will cost Rs 125 crore.
Meanwhile, the work on the Bikram Chowk- Gandhinagar flyover is going on war footing and it is expected to be completed by December 2016. Sources said that the work on the second phase of this project would be launched immediately after the funding is arranged.
