The state government has approved the project of constructing an elevated over-bridge road on Udaipole-Surajpole-Delhi Gate Court Choraha route. The responsibility of plan has been handed over to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI). The elevated roads are going to get constructed into the region of Udaipur and Bikaner with the estimated cost of 271 Crore. In Udaipur, 136 crores are going to spend on the development whereas remaining fund is proposed for Bikaner. The budget was passed by honorable Vasundhara Raje, Chief Minister of Rajasthan and other development authorities in the discussion meeting held in Jaipur on 25th July. By looking at the increasing traffic problems in the both the cities the decision was passed in favor for the construction of over-bridge.
From Udaipole to Court Choraha, bypassing Surajpole and Delhi Gate, this can ease the traffic congestion in that area. Earlier, the business oriented people operating in the affected locations with the medium of Chamber of Commerce had objected the construction, suggesting that elevated roads will affect their daily business activities. By focusing on this keen concern, UIT has got the Design, Length, and Span approved through a DPR with the help of Ahmedabad-based project consultants and road designers. Apart from this, several times local meets have been settled undertaking the construction of over-bridge in Udaipur.
Once the project is completed successfully, Udaipur will witness the ease in traffic which is originating from Sector 11, Hiran Magri, Patel Circle, City Station heading directly to Ashok Nagar, Panchwati, Bhupalpura, Chetak and beyond Fatehpura, Nathdwara, will avoid the crowded areas of Surajpole, Delhi Gate, Collectorate Road, and Court Choraha. Heavy transports will no longer affect near Delhi Gate or Surajpole unless they are determined to be in these locations.
Udaipur people is having positive expectations this time. We wish the project of elevated road gets start soon.
