Nagpur: Although the proposal for construction of Anand Talkies and Mekosabagh Mominpura Railway Under bridges were given together, the construction of Mominpura Bridge remains pending even after a decade. The construction of Anand Talkies Under bridge was, however, completed within the specified time.
Former minister, Anees Ahmed, in a meeting with Central Minister Nitin Gadkari, has demanded completion of the structure at the earliest. The existing under bridge at Mominpura is not wide enough for two vehicles to pass through simultaneously. The same is often filled with water creating a problem for the passersby. Ahmed has also raised a demand for the broadening of this under bridge.
He has also stated that the sewerage lines of Dobi Nagar, Ansar Nagar, Haidari Road and Kradak Road are leaking and creating a mishap in the area.
It is to be mentioned that this road connects Central Nagpur to North Nagpur. It creates a problem for the passage of heavy vehicles from the road. Considering these problems, the demands for either construction of a new Under bridge or widening of the same one has been raised by the minister. Had the construction been done earlier the same would have been done at quite low prices, which have now increased with time. The present situation is causing a chaos in the area affecting the passersby.
