JAIPUR: The wait for the elevated road on Hawa Sadak is going to come to an end soon. The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has finished the project and will likely have it inaugurated by chief minister Ashok Gehlot this month. Sources said that the road can be thrown open for the public at the beginning of Navratra.

The Elevated Road will be a big relief for those who commute between Ambedkar Circle and Sodala Tiraha. The traffic congestion on this stretch of the road is quite common, particularly during rush hour when the thousands of government employees working in Rajasthan Secretariate, Rajasthan high court and state assembly come to and leave work.

Commuting between Rambagh Circle and Sodala will get more convenient with the launch of the project. Some work on the stretch from 22 Godown circle to Civil Lines is still incomplete.

JDA will start load testing in a few days. The project was to be launched by August 15, but it got delayed. This project was launched in August 2016, then the deadline for its completion at that time was June 2019. It was then due to be completed by May 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the deadline had to be extended again.

After the commencement of this elevated road, there will be a big relief from the traffic jams at Jaipur 22 Godown, Hawa Road, Sodala Tiraha. At present, it takes about 20 to 25 minutes to reach Sodala vegetable market from Ambedkar Circle via 22 Godown Circle, Hawa Road. After the construction of this elevated road, this journey will be completed in less than 10 minutes. Apart from this, the problem of traffic jams at 22 godown circles will also be reduced significantly.
