Patna, March 25, 2021: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar inaugurated the GPO-R block flyover in Patna on Thursday evening. Deputy Chief Minister Tarkishore Prasad and Renu Devi, Road Construction Minister Nitin Naveen along with departmental Additional Chief Secretary Amrit Lal Meena and other officials were also present at the inauguration ceremony.
Before Holi, the state government has given a big gift to the citizens of Patna. With its inauguration, the long-running wait was over.
Road under flyover will be built in 10 days
According to the bridge construction department, this flyover from R-Block to GPO Golambar is 628 meters long and 15 meters wide. About 65 crore rupees have been spent on the construction of this flyover. Now, the road under the flyover will also be made in 10 days. Construction of this flyover was started in 2015 at a cost of about Rs 104 crore, which was targeted to be ready by November 2018. However, its deadline was later set to March 31, 2021.
Travel will be easy, the pressure will be less on the roads.
After the construction of this flyover, vehicles coming from the Vidhansabha, Secretariat, Gurdnibagh, Mithapur and Income Tax Golambar in Patna will be able to go directly to Gandhi Maidan and Kankarbagh. Apart from this, vehicles coming from the Mithapur bus stand and Karbigahiya will be able to leave towards the Income Tax Golambar, Assembly, Secretariat, Mithapur, and Gurdnibagh. This will reduce the pressure of vehicles on Buddha Marg.
The problem of jam in Patna is constantly increasing. A large number of people get upset by being stuck in a traffic jam. In such a situation, the capital will get rid of the jam from the beginning of the GPO-R block flyover. It will be easy to go from one end of Patna to the other.
Nitish said – population increased, so continuous work is being done
On the inauguration of the flyover, CM Nitish said, “The government is constantly working for development. We all work continuously. All officers are doing better. Bihar has developed a lot. The population has increased due to which construction work is being done continuously. The construction of this bridge is going to benefit everyone.”
