NHAI clears Rs 573 crore India’s first four-layer transport system in Nagpur

Nagpur (Urban Transport News): In a major development that will change the city’s contours, a proposal worth Rs. 573 crores approved by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) for the construction of India’s first four-layer transport system in Nagpur. The Authority has given its unconditional clearance to Rs 573 crore proposal submitted by the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (MahaMetro) for commencing the construction of flyover and Metro route at Kamptee Road, Nagpur.

The structure is part of the Reach-II segment of Nagpur Metro Rail project which stretches from Sitabuldi Interchange Metro Station to Automotive Square Metro Station. The total length of the viaduct in Reach-II stretches to 7.23 km. The total length of the flyover to be constructed is 5.3 km.

Here are some of the salient features of the project:

  • The proposed flyover and the metro track share `Right of Way’ – the 2 structures to be constructed on a single pillar, thus saving cost and also minimizing the use of road space.
  • The fly-over structure will start from LIC Square and culminate at Automotive Square – both located on the busy Kamptee Road.
  • The four levels are – Kamptee Road, Nagpur-Bhopal Railway Line, Fly-over and Metro viaduct.
  • The maximum height of Metro via-duct would be at Gurdwara at Gaddigodam, where the rail line passes over the road.
  • The maximum height of fly-over across the stretch would be at Gaddigodam, where the railway line crosses the road – 14.9 metres.
  • Similarly, the maximum height of via-duct across the stretch would be at the same location - Gaddigodam, where the railway line crosses the road – 24.8 metres.
  • The proposed flyover would be a 4-lane structure. The total cost of the fly-over has been pegged at Rs.573 crore.

Kamptee Road is one of the busiest roads of the city with multiple traffic junctions. Thousands of two, three and four-wheeler vehicles ply through the road, which connects two major cities of India viz. Varanasi and Hyderabad. A good number of educational institutions, commercial places, cinema halls, malls are lined up on the road.

Once completed, the four-layer transport system would serve as a milestone for the Orange City and another feather to its cap. It will also be an iconic transportation structure for others to emulate and help to decongest the traffic on the busy Kamptee Road.
