Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel will unveil a few more projects for the Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) and the Rajkot Urban Development Authority (RUDA), as well as the AG Chowk flyover bridge, which is next to the Jaddu’s Food Field restaurant on Kalavad Road on Saturday.
Patel will effectively dedicate the 360-meter flyover, which the RMC built at a cost of Rs 28.52 crore, according to an official statement from the RMC. The RMC officials stated that the bridge’s construction, which began in January 2021, was finished on schedule.
The four-lane bridge features a carriageway that is 15.50 metres wide, divided into two tracks for up and down traffic that are each seven metres wide. The bridge’s western approach begins at the village of Mota Mava’s current river bridge, while the eastern approach begins at AG Chowk.
On either side of the bridge are utility ducts, sidewalks, and service roads that are 6 metres wide. The press release claimed that the opening of this flyover on the city’s busiest thoroughfare would help two lakh people every day. This is the fourth flyover bridge that the RMC has built at a city traffic intersection.
The mayor of Rajkot, Pradip Dav, the minister of agriculture, Raghavji Patel, and the minister of social justice and empowerment, Bhanuben Babariya, will all be present in Rajkot when the CM virtually opens the bridge.
The CM will also officially open phases III and IV of the RUDA-built Ring Road II, which circles the city from south to north. The 10.60 km long phase-III section, which connects the National Highway 27 (NH 27) stretch heading to Gondal with the Rajkot-Bhavnagar state highway on the eastern edge of the city, was built at a cost of Rs 16.36 crore, according to an RMC release.
On the other side, Phase-IV, which is 10.36 km long and cost Rs 22.04 crore to build, links the Rajkot-Bhavnagar highway to the NH 27 route that leads to Ahmedabad. The opening of these two stretches will signal the conclusion of the city’s circular path on three sides. Bypassing Rajkot city will be helpful for individuals travelling from Ahmedabad to Gondal and vice versa.
The CM will also lay the cornerstone for the construction of an electric bus depot and charging station, which will cost a total of Rs 7.92 crore and be built close to Nanavati Chowk on a 150-foot ring road. According to the statement, he will inaugurate 100 low-income groups (LIG) homes and award 590 affordable homes in the EWS-1 category via a computerised draw of lots.
