Pardi flyover works just 36% complete in four years

Nagpur: Pardi flyover Bhoomi puja, being designed by the Indian National Highways Authority (NHAI), was performed in August 2014. It was supposed to be completed by the end of 2017, but as it is just 36 percent complete on the date and nobody knows when it will open up to traffic.

From the outset, the project had been dogged by delays. The actual work on the flyover started 22 months after the bhoomipujan, in June 2016. It soon ran into problems with land acquisitions. The NHAI still doesn’t have 40 percent of the land it needs for the project as it has done to date.

NHAI still has to receive approval for its portion design over a narrow-gauge line belonging to the South East Central Railway (SECR). MahaMetro is constructing its viaduct in the area and therefore NHAI is not having enough time to do its job. That has slowed the project down.

An official at NHAI said the project required 1.01 hectares of land, but the organization still did not have 0.34 ha of land. “The owners have declined to part with their land and Nagpur Municipal Corporation will have to go in for compulsory purchase. That will postpone the project even further. The project’s initial cost was Rs 448.32 crore, and much has increased, “he said.

Senior officer Samay Nikose, in elaborating on the project’s status, said the flyover had five weapons.

“The center is Piazza HB City. There are 30 spans to the arm towards Pardi and all of them are complete. There are 33 spans on the Itwari arm and only 10 total. This is where we face problems with land acquisition.

There are 10 spans toward the Rani Prajapati Junction on Central Avenue and we were unable to complete even one. The issues here are both land and alignment with the MahaMetro viaduct. The Manewada arm has 27 spans, but due to a narrow-gauge railway line and MahaMetro viaduct none was complete, “he said.

A rotary is being installed on HB Town Square and piling work is underway.

“The road on the Kalamna arm is 11 meters full on the right side (RHS) and 7 meters on the left side (LHS) on the service roads,” Nikose said. On LHS, except at Hanuman Temple Square, 7-meter patch was built in Pardi’s neck.

Seven-meter patch on RHS is ready and the curing is on. The service road to Manewada is 7 meters ready on RHS while the road to Itwari arm is 11 meters complete on RHS.
