The state government has embarked on a mega flyover project in Guwahati to relieve the mounting pressure of vehicles in and through the' Gateway to the Northeast.' Once completed, this 1.5 km long double-lane T-shaped flyover on Guwahati-Shillong (GS) Road will be the longest in the entire north-east region. The Detailed Project Report (DPR) has already been compiled by the State Department of Public Works (PWD).
The proposed flyover is an addition to the one being built in Ganeshguri, right now.
Judged toward Khanapara from Paltan Bazar's side, the main flyover will stretch to the right.
It will begin at Dispur in front of the Janata Bhawan and end at the police point in Down Town. The right-hand bifurcation, on the other hand, will start from the Dispur Supermarket junction to end before the Last Gate traffic roundabout (Golchakkar).
Under the SOPD (State-Owned Priority Development) program, the rough cost of this project is Rs 126 crore. This flyover's construction work is expected to start from this month itself. Although the completion of the project is three years, State PWD sources have told The Sentinel that the Department will attempt to complete the flyover before the scheduled date.
The PWD has already conducted a survey and prepared a report to be shared with the Guwahati Traffic Police Authority to ensure uninterrupted traffic contact during the flyover-construction phase.
