Part of Ganeshguri Flyover dangles perilously, endangering commuters
GUWAHATI: Off late, the Ganeshguri flyover in Guwahati is posing a real threat to the commuters and pedestrians.
A section of the flyover can be seen dangling dangerously and looks like an accident waiting to happen. With incessant rains hitting the city in the last few days along with winds, this portion could break away and cause grievous injury to passing cars and commuters.
Located in Ward No 19 of Guwahati Municipal Corporation, the traffic junction under the flyover lies at the intersection of two major roads in the city – Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardeva Path (GS Road) and RG Baruah Road (Zoo Road) both of which see heavy traffic throughout the day.
Further, two lanes from Japorigog – Nayanpur Road and Hengrabari Road also open up at GS Road under the flyover.
It is to be mentioned that the 2006 built flyover needs a serious inspection as it plays an important role in connecting the capital.
