After getting a foot overbridge constructed in Charbagh and Alambagh, the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) has started constructing one on Lohia Path between a cancer institute on Jiamau and the road leading to DGP office.
In Mangalore, a second foot overbridge was inaugurated at Mangalore Central Railway Station on February 11. Nalin Kumar Kateel, Member of Parliament from Mangalore said that the overbridge has been constructed at a cost of Rs 75 lakh to connect platforms 1, 2 and 3.
