Rani Chennamma Circle flyover, one of the important projects of Hubballi city is making constant progress. The earthwork has been started near the IT Park.
To facilitate the construction, traffic in front of the IT park has been completely diverted. Those who are going towards BRTS Corridor from the Old bus stand will have to pass through the Swimming pool complex in the opposite direction.
Temporary median has been arranged across the stretch of around 500m. As the road is just 2 lanes, it is experiencing heavy traffic snarls.
Pier construction for one arm of the flyover descending towards Gokul Road is already in progress at Vani Vilas Circle near Hosur. However, the construction is yet to be started on other parts.
Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways had inaugurated the Foundation stone laying ceremony of the flyover virtually around a year back (15th January 2021).
Central Government had approved the construction of Elevated Corridor/Flyover at Rani Chennamma Circle of Hubballi at a cost of ₹298 Crores.
The Elevated Corridor/Flyover of 3.6km will have all Safety provisions like Crash barriers, Lighting, Signboards, Markings will be implemented to ease the traffic congestion.
As per the plan, the flyover will be an oval-shaped structure that covers the entire circle. A 4 lane road would connect Ambedkar circle via Lamington Road.
From the elevated corridor, A 2-lane road would proceed towards Hosur Circle via IT Park and a similar road will connect Vijayapura Road via Desai Cross.
