Lucknow residents will soon have access to the new flyover on one of the busiest routes in the city connecting Munshipulia and Engineering college. Construction of the flyover is now complete and it is expected to open soon for the public. The flyover is currently undergoing load trials. Once operational, it is expected that this establishment will help in reducing travel time and dissolving traffic jams on this busy route, benefitting the inhabitants of Aliganj, Khurram Nagar, Jankipuram and other areas.

Move to dissolve extended traffic jams on Ring Road

The aforesaid section of the Ring Road caters to a large count of heavy vehicles which leads to the massive jams of vehicles almost daily. Sometimes, the traffic jams stretch over a kilometre, hampering easy commute for the regular travellers. Additionally, the road crossing at Tedhi Pulia witnesses a humongous count of large and small vehicles both during the day and nighttime. Given these circumstances, the flyover was the need of the hour to resolve the existing problems and difficulties.

Expected to benefit over 1 lakh commuters!

The construction work for this flyover was initiated in February 2019. Built at an approximate cost of ₹96 crores, this 1.8-kilometre long flyover has been established using 12 50-metre long steel girders. Speaking about the project, the PWD officers informed that load trials are being executed on the flyover and it will be soon opened for the public. As per the current estimates, it can be said that this facility shall ease travel for around 1 lakh individuals.

While all locals and tourists shall be advantaged by this flyover, maximum benefits accrue to the residents around Sitapur Road, Engineering College crossing, Munshipulia, Aliganj, Khurram Nagar, Jankipuram and the neighbouring areas. Additionally, the traffic from Kursi road will take the underpass ahead and the traffic jams shall be prevented.
