Lucknow: The first-ever four-laned flyover at Tedhiphulia, that was built to decongest traffic jams on one of Lucknow’s busiest routes, will finally be opened for public use on April 2, 2021.
One of outstanding examples of modern technology, this flyover is suspended on a single pillar and stretches for about 1.8-kilometres. It has been designed and developed by employing means of modern technology and is lifted by 12 50-metre long steel girders and is approximately 21.5 metre wide. This will provide ease of travel and commute to over 1 lakh people and would solve city’s major traffic jams connecting Munishipulia and Engineering College.
Constructed by the PWD at a cost of ₹96 crores, this new overhead road project was flagged off in February 2019 and while the work was delayed due to the COVID-19 national lockdown, the flyover is now ready and is currently undergoing load trials. As per reports, it can shoulder about 45,000 to 1 lakh commuters every day, providing a hassle-free commute in the city.
While, this project will benefit all locals and tourists but maximum advantage will be to the residents around Sitapur Road, Engineering College crossing, Munshipulia, Aliganj, Khurram Nagar, Jankipuram and the neighbouring areas. Additionally, the traffic from Kursi road will take the underpass ahead, hence, decongesting traffic jams that sometimes stretch over a kilometre.
