Work on steel flyover will begin after NGT vacates stay: KJ George

Submitted by alvin on Fri, 2016-12-02 17:56 Bengaluru: Despite opposition from green activists and the stay ordered by the NGT, Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George said that the state government would start work on the steel flyover soon after the NGT vacated the stay. "We are making efforts to vacate the stay so that we can complete the project within two years. The steel bridge was conceived by the  BJP government. The detailed project report was prepared only when the Congress government came to power," said George. The minister said the project had to be implemented to ease traffic flow towards the Kempegowda International Airport and also provide connectivity to Tumakuru Road, and Nagavara-Hennur roads. "People travelling to Hebbal and Yelahanka can also take this route. The spare parts and equipment necessary for the project will be manufactured in single unit," he added.
