Bhubaneswar: MP Aparajita Sarangi today laid the foundation stone for a flyover at Hanspal in Odisha capital.
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will construct the flyover at the accident-prone spot on NH-16 in an estimated time of 18 months at a cost of Rs 24.63 crore.
Sarangi had met Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari in this regard, last year.
A committee comprising NHAI Project Director and local residents has been formed for timely completion of the project, she said. Residents of Hanspal expressed their gratitude to Sarangi for fulfilling their long-pending demand.
Construction of the flyover will be of immense help in preventing road mishaps, locals said.
