BANGALORE: As if the persistent delays dogging the Yeshwanthpur Flyover were not enough, it is dragging on even in the last lap. This time it has been pushed by another 20 days from the recently extended deadline of April-end as it is getting the ‘finishing’ touches.
Road-users are in no mood to accept delay after four years of noise and grind and traffic jams caused by the the four-lane flyover. The Yeshwantpur flyover construction which started in 2006 was expected to completed by December 2007 and then the deadline was extended to January 2008 and further to April 2009.
But the present status of the work shows that the final completion of the flyover would require a minimum of one month’s time and the traffic coming from NH-4 would be eased only after the flyover is open. The project which was estimated at Rs 19.
30 crore at the Yeshwantpur junction connects five roads including NH-4 and the Yeshwanthpur main road. Speaking to The New Indian Express, BBMP sources said that there has not been any additional financial burden due to the delay and the remaining work of asphaltation and concreting would take about 10 to 15 days. The sources said that it would be difficult to inaugurate it by May 16 as it would be a code violation.
