Pune Infra watch: Rs 169.15 Cr sanctioned for six lane flyover
| Thursday | 8th April, 2021
The bypass has been a connecting point to the Information Technology Park at Hinjewadi for residents living in Pashan, Kothrud, Warje, Sinhagad Road and Satara road.
Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari recently declared sanctioning of the construction work of the flyover at a cost of Rs 169.15 crore for which the tender process was done a few months ago.
The traffic chaos at the busy Katraj chowk is all set to resolve soon as the union government has sanctioned Rs 169.15 crore for the six-lane flyover at the junction that falls on the National Highway stretch. The junction connects Pune city to the Mumbai-Banglore bypass and Pune-Solapur highway.
The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) had proposed a flyover at Katraj junction to address the traffic chaos but could not take up the work for long. Thus, the union minister decided to take up the work as it was on the junction on National Highway.
The flyover will be 1,326 meters long and 24.20 meters wide. It will start from the Pune-Mumbai bypass and land on Katraj-Kondhwa road.
“I am thankful to Nitin Gadkari for sanctioning the necessary funds for the flyover at Katraj junction,” she said as the area comes under the Baramati Lok Sabha constituency represented by her.
The PMC was entrusted with acquiring land for the project and shifting the utilities in the area while the union government would construct the flyover that would ensure smooth travel in all directions of the junction without any hurdles.
