Hoteliers in Bhupatwala area and seers objected to an elevated road and demanded a flyover instead.
The long pending NH-58 project has been delayed by one more year. NH-58 which connects Delhi to Uttarakhand was scheduled to be finished by the end of 2020, keeping in mind Maha Kumbh 2021.
After hoteliers in Bhupatwala area and seers objected to an elevated road and demanded a flyover instead, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) agreed to make changes in the highway’s design to accommodate at 2Km-long flyover from the old RTO crossing to Shantikunj.
“An elevated road with retaining walls on either side would aggravate the alredy mencing problem of water-logging in Haridwar. The city has been dealing with water-filled streets for decades,” said Bhupatwala municipal councillor Aniruddh Bhati.
