VTA to pursue early expansion of Chinchbhavan Flyover

VTA meeting on Chinchbhavan Flyover
Nagpur: Vidarbha Taxpayers Association (VTA) since its inception has been taking various causes in public interest for the benefit of the society in terms of economics, accountability, convenience and taxation.

In furtherance to that VTA in its executive body meeting held recently has decided that VTA shall now take up issue of early expansion of Chinchbhavan Flyover situated between Nagpur & Kapri on Wardha Road.

Tejinder Singh Renu, secretary of VTA informed the members, “As I am thankfully appointed Member of Mihan Task Force by Govt of Maharashtra, I have been frequently visiting Central Facility Building, Mihan. I found present Chinchbhavan Flyover too narrow and a sought of obstacle connecting prestigious Mihan, Butibori Industrial Area to City. Moreover proposed AIIMS in Mihan will attract many patients too and if their ambulance gets stuck-up in traffic jam on this flyover, it could cause casualty for simply not able to provide medical facility in time”.

Renu said that with enormous efforts of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari Mihan will surely take off smoothly soon, but the Chinchbhavan Flyover also needs to be expanded immediate to cater the future needs of the city. Many Foreign delegates are frequently visiting SEZ Mihan to explore possibilities of expansion of their units including for survey in furtherance to new project and having no other option they pass through Chinchbhavan Flyover which shadows a bad impression of facilities towards SEZ Mihan. Therefore removal of this hurdle by expansion of Chinchbhavan Flyover is another topmost priority of the city. Hence VTA should take this issue in the interest of city of Nagpur.

Appreciating the subject J. P. Sharma president of VTA also said that he too have experienced many times when this flyover is literally closed for hours together if any vehicle fails on flyover making entire flyover one-way. Even a small accident also causes similar problem and the agony is being the present size of flyover too narrow, it is prone to recurrent accidents.

Renu suggested that in this process, VTA will meet Project Director of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) and shall also request Union Minister for Highways Nitin Gadkari to expedite expansion of Chinchbhavan Flyover along with clearance of hurdles in Mihan.

Also present in the meeting were VTA Treasurer Pawan K. Chopra, Joint Secretary Hemant Trivedi & Pravin M. Agrawal; Executive Body Member Amarjeet Singh Chawla, Rajesh Kanoongo, Rohit Agrawal and Sanjay K. Agrawal.
