During the inspection, Atishi said, “The construction of the flyover is lagging behind the scheduled time, causing daily traffic jams affecting thousands of vehicles, leading to inconvenience for the commuters.”

The flyover project is one of the 77 projects identified by the government to make it congestion free.

“She directed officials to expedite the remaining work by doubling the manpower and machines involved. Additionally, she instructed them to submit progress reports every week,” officials said.
