Assam: CM Himanta Sarma inaugurates 2.6 km long 'Nilachal' flyover in Maligaon

Few hours before the inauguration of the Maligaon flyover it was renamed as Nilachal flyover.

It may be mentioned that the 2.6km four-lane flyover has been built at a cost of Rs. 420.75 crore.

Speaking at the programme, CM Sarma said, “In 2020-21, we have decided to construct a steel girder flyover from Maligaon to Kamakhya, which is one of the busiest roads in Guwahati. Today, finally, we have opened the bride for public.”

He said the new flyover will ease the traffic on the Maligaon – Kamakhya stretch.

The flyover, stretching from Maligaon Chariali to Kamakhya gate on AT road, boasts an extended arm to Pandu ghat feeder road.

The foundation stone of the project was laid in October 2020. The construction of the bridge started in March 2021. The project was engineered by the Assam PWD, and constructed by a joint venture of Shree Gautam Construction Co Ltd and Anupam Nirman Pvt Ltd.

“We are very happy that within a span of few years, the flyover was completed and now we can use this flyover. We often use bus services and it takes time to reach Maligaon from Kamakhya due to heavy traffic flow and rush, but now it will become easy for us to travel through this route,” said Kamal Medhi, a resident of Guwahati.
