    Bridging Gap: Kaziranga Soon To Get 35.82 Km Long Flyover

    The 35.82 kilometres long and 11 meters broad flyover will be constructed at a total estimated cost of Rs 2,625 crore

    A 35.82 kilometres long flyover is soon to be constructed on the National Highway-37 towards the southern direction of the World Heritage Site, Kaziranga National Park. The highway acts as a boundary to the Kaziranga National Park which is known for the one-horned rhino.

    The proposal came up in response to an order issued by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in November 2013. As directed by the NGT, the Wildlife Board of the Assam government has sought a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the construction of the flyover from a Mumbai-based multinational company called Wadia Techno-Engineering Services Limited.

    After the submission of the DPR, the construction work of the flyover is expected to begin. This decision came after a discussion between Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Wildlife Board.

    The 35.82 kilometres long and 11 meters broad flyover will be constructed at a total estimated cost of Rs 2,625 crore. As per information, the flyover will also have a footpath, bike path, plantations and a tunnel.

    “The four-lane project is underway in the NH-37 in Assam. But the four-laning along the stretch toward the south of Kaziranga has several cons. Hence, we had given a proposal to the NGT for a flyover,” said Mrinal Saikia, MLA Khumtai.

    The flyover is also expected to check the accidents of animals by speeding vehicles on the highway. During heavy floods, animals while trying to cross the highway to go to the higher grounds in Karbi Anglong district which is on the other side of NH-37 are hit by speeding vehicles. More than 16 hog deer were killed while crossing the highway during the first wave of Assam floods.
