Nagpur: The super fast pace of Nagpur Metro Rail works has turned the heads of many agencies, and the speed will only multiply in coming days.The work for the four lane flyover and the metro track on the Ajni Square to Manish Nagar stretch will finally start from October 23.
These two will be double decker flyovers. While the road track will be elevated at the height of 22 metres, the metro track will be built 12 metres above the ground. These heights roughly equal 7-storied and 4-storied buildings respectively. To make way for these 2-deck flyovers, the existing Chhatrapati Flyover, which was scheduled to be razed this month, will now be demolished from first week of November.
NMRCL Spokesman informed that now the time to take the big leap has come. The tenders for Khapri and Sadar flyovers will be opened on November 15 and their construction will begin in December.
The three km long flyover, only second of its type in the country will carry road traffic as well as metro trains. It will begin from Ajni Square and end just before Hotel Pride. It will cost about 425 crore or about Rs 120 crore per km. The Manish Nagar spur will cost another 65 crore.
