Four Foot-over Bridges to be Constructed over GS Road
GUWAHATI : The Assam government has sanctioned the construction of four foot-over bridges in Guwahati, sources at the Guwahati Municipal Corporation informed G Plus.
“The plans for construction of foot-over bridges in the city started to take shape due to the construction of concrete dividers. The GMC had thus submitted proposals for the construction of 10 bridges but the higher authorities claimed that only four of those are feasible,” said the source.
The four foot-over bridges will be constructed in GS Road near Apollo Hospital, Bhangagarh Bazaar, GMDA parking, and GS Road near Dona Planet.
Additionally, proposals have also been sent for various other projects such as Beltola market complex, Adabari bus stand and artificial water reservoir from the chief engineer’s office to the state government.
“We plan to make the Adabari bus stand at par with the bus stands in Ahmedabad and Vadodara. The tendering for the same has been done and development works are currently on-going,” Debajit Das, chief engineer of GMC informed G Plus.
He added that the GMC will also construct more AC bus stands across Guwahati like the ones constructed at Pan Bazaar and Bora Service. Additionally, GMC is also working towards completing the construction of all the market complexes.
