With huge traffic congestion all over town, the BCC Commissioner M.R. Ravi Kumar told the media that a plan was on the papers to build a flyover from Sangolli Rayanna Circle to Sanchayani Circle via Rani Channamma Circle and Dharmveer Sambhaji Circle will come up in the city.
A Pune based agency will prepare a detailed project report on the same and the estimated cost would be around 90 to 100 crores. This is just a preliminary estimates and it could go higher.
Ravikumar also said that as Rs.100 crore have been sanctioned in the 2015-16 budget the same can be utilized for the project.
This is a 2.2 kms stretch and there is heavy traffic each day and Chennama circle is many a times blocked due to some agitation and protests.
Speaking to the media he also said that, National Highways Authority of India would soon start construction of a bypass from Halga to Machhe. On the compensation part he said Govt will make appropriate compensation to the farmers.
This is just another plan on the drawing board as of now and the BCC is not completing the most needed projects like the Railway overbridges.
