The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) would construct a flyover at Hanspal in the city in 18 months, informed Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi on Monday.
The project would cost about Rs 30 crore, she said after having a discussion with NHAI officials in the morning.
“Residents of the area will have ease of living. I am immensely grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Road Transport & Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari for their support,” Sarangi Tweeted.
“In the next 120 days, a tender will be finalised and work order will be issued. In 18 months from the date of award of contract, the project will be completed. Timelines have been set and a committee of local residents with PD, NHAI, formed to oversee. I will personally monitor it,” she added.
Earlier in July, Sarangi had held a meeting with Gadkari over the issue of flyover construction at Hanspal, which is an accident-prone spot.
