Ministers Botsa Sathyanarayana and Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao on Monday inspected the works at the NAD flyover. They announced that works were nearing completion and it would be opened to the public from the first week of February.
The foundation stone was laid on 27 September 2018, and it was initially expected to be completed by March-end in 2020. The project’s total cost is Rs. 122 crores. Mr. Srinivasa Rao said Rs 20 crore would be spent additionally to beautify the flyover on all sides as it is close to the Vizag International Airport.
This is the first rotary mode flyover in south India, an official said. The minister said DPR had been made ready for four more flyovers on the NH16 and the beach road between RK beach and Park Hotel junction would get a facelift with Rs 100 crore World Bank funds.
The rotary mode separator of the flyover will have a passage for light motor vehicles at the ground level. The one above the ground level would be exclusively for heavy vehicles. A provision is also made for the metro rail, the official said. The junction, the busiest in Visakhapatnam city, will be free from traffic hassles after the opening of the flyover, said a senior traffic police official. The city has around nine lakh vehicles and more than half touch the NAD junction. Every year, the city adds 50,000 new vehicles
