Guwahati: NHAI Prepares DPR on New Flyovers
GUWAHATI: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is preparing the detailed project report (DPR) to set up flyovers at Basistha Chariali, Lakhra and Gorchuk on the national highway stretch of Guwahati.
In reply to a question raised by MLA Rekibuddin Ahmed, Minister of Guwahati Development Department Siddhartha Bhattacharya said that the DPR will be completed within this month and then work will start accordingly.
It is to be mentioned that the Guwahati bypass connecting Khanapara and Jalukbari that was constructed to ease the heavy traffic within the city has now turned into a major traffic congestion site itself. The 18 km long bypass sees heavy traffic cascading during the peak hours every single day, which sometimes runs up to Jalukbari and Basistha points.
Locals and people commuting on the road regularly complained of heavy traffic throughout the day from 8 AM to 6 PM. Most were of the view that school buses of the institutions located along the bypass as well as the office goers cause the traffic jams.
