State greenlights Rs 1.85 bn for 2 key flyovers in Ahmedabad

The approval for the construction of two flyovers at Panjrapol and Panchvati junctions has been granted by the state government, with a total budget of Rs 1.8512 billion allocated under the Swarnim Jayanti Mukhya Mantri Shaheri Vikas Yojana. The Panjrapol junction flyover, spanning 652 m in length and 17 m in width, will receive Rs 869.4 million, while the Panchavati junction flyover, covering 779.19 m in length and 17 m in width, will be funded with Rs 981.8 million.

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC), following the construction of an S-shaped flyover near Gujarat College, proposes an L-shaped route for the Panchvati junction flyover. Starting from the Radisson Blu hotel in the Law Garden area and extending towards Gita Rambhiya Circle via Panchvati Crossroads, it will conclude near the CN Vidyalaya gates. Originally planned to end in front of Central Mall, the route was revised to direct the flyover towards Gita Rambhiya Circle before reaching CN Vidyalaya gates.

Sources reveal that the Panjrapol flyover will commence from the Polytechnic and terminate at the Ahmedabad Management Association. The urban development department recently presented a proposal to Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel for these new flyovers in Ahmedabad.

The government's long-term vision for enhancing urban infrastructure includes plans to construct 20 flyovers in Ahmedabad, out of the 75 planned across the state. Seven of these flyovers have already received provisional sanctioning of Rs 6128.6 billion.

Additionally, the urban development department has been allocated a budget of Rs 216.96 billion to implement qualitative changes in urban planning and management. These funds will be utilised for infrastructure development, including roads, bridges, water supply systems, drainage, healthcare, and transportation improvements.

The Swarnim Jayanti Mukhya Mantri Shaheri Vikas Yojana, dedicated to comprehensive city development, has been extended for another three years until 2026-27, ensuring sustained progress and continuity in urban development initiatives. Initially announced in 2009-10 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gujarat’s establishment, the scheme continues to play a crucial role in the state's development.
