Jaipur: The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) will build five flyovers at different locations on Jaipur-Ajmer national highway (NH-8) including Bhankrota and Mahapura Junction in the near future. The decision has been taken by the state authorities in order to get rid of the traffic overload on NH-8. The central ministry has given approval for the project. Union minister for Road Transport & Highways Nitin Gadkari instructed NHAI to make a DPR for the project on Thursday. The flyovers will be constructed at five spots between Jaipur and Ajmer including Bhankrota, Dehmi Kala, near Kamla Nehru market, Mahindra Sez and Bandar Sindri. Considering the commuters’ problem due to the traffic Jam on the Jaipur-Ajmer highway, MP Ramcharan Bohra wrote a letter to Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. Project director of NHAI Narsingh Narayan Giri said that the central ministry has given the approval for the project. The time and cost of the project will be ascertained after the DPR report. Bohra said that the flyover project will benefit the people of Jaipur and Ajmer. The construction of a flyover at Bhankrota is the demand of the hour as people get stuck in traffic jams for hours sometimes. Also, the Jaipur-Ajmer highway is the main national highway which connects Udaipur, Mumbai, and Ahmedabad. The traffic load due to this is too much on the highway.
