IInd phase of Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover to be inaugurated today
Srinagar, May 21: The second phase of the Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover will be inaugurated and thrown open for vehicular traffic tomorrow on May 22, officials said on Tuesday.
This will be after over five years since work on the flyover project started in October 2013 and one year after its first phase was inaugurated and thrown open in May last year, said an official.
This particular phase of the flyover stretches 1.04 kilometres from Rambagh to Alochi Bagh having been constructed at a cost of Rs 37.5 crore.
It is expected to result in substantial traffic relief to commuters traveling from areas across this stretch towards Lal Chowk and will reduce travel time between the said areas from 15 minutes to 1 minute, he said.
The flyover is expected to prove as a major traffic decongestant on grade roads underneath it including Rambagh, Solina and Alochi Bagh. It is also expected to significantly reduce stagnation on the important Rambagh Bridge.
