IInd phase of Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover thrown open to public
Srinagar, May 22: Governor Satya Pal Malik inaugurated the second phase of the flyover Wednesday morning in presence of other government officials.
The second phase of the flyover which stretches over 1.04 kilometres from Rambagh to Alochi Bagh has been constructed at a cost of Rs 37.5 crore.
The third and last phase of the flyover is expected to be completed by June end. Once completed, the 2.4 kilometre flyover with six access ramps – including at Jehangir Chowk, Gogji Bagh, Alochi Bagh, Rambagh, Natipora and Barzulla – is expected to substantially decongest city traffic and reduce travel time between Jehangir Chowk and Rambagh from about 45 minutes as it takes now to about 2.5 minutes.
