The flyover being constructed on Raj Nagar Extension square would be inaugurated on June 30. The officials of the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) and Uttar Pradesh Bridge Corporation informed City Spidey that the construction work is expected to get complete by this week and would be thrown open to the public after a trial is conducted.
The flyover, a two-lane bridge with a length of 535 meters, is expected to provide relief to 1 lakh commuters- nearly 3/4th of the total traffic on the Meerut road.
"It would bring relief to 70 per cent of the commuters moving towards Delhi to Meerut," told VN Singh, chief engineer of the authority.
With an expense of Rs 45 crore, the flyover is engineered by UP Bridge Corporation while its cost is being borne by the GDA besides providing land available for the project.
Meanwhile, another flyover on the route of Meerut to Delhi, coming up on another side of the road is still under construction.
"The formal inauguration would happen once the construction of other flyover gets completed," Singh added.
Drainage to come up below flyover
AK Singh, project manager of the bridge corporation said that the construction is almost complete, only black layering of the road on the flyover is remaining. Meanwhile, drainage would also be built below the flyover.
"The digging work could not be started due to the heavy flow of the vehicles on the route. Once the flyover is open for public use, we would restrict the passage below the flyover and build drainage," told Singh.
Singh also informed that the flyover would be painted from both sides after the construction is complete.
