So that the width of this road can be increased by 15 meters in the proposed development plan 2041. In fact, last year itself the authority had approved a flyover worth Rs 81 crore at Mahunaka intersection. But since the width of the road is only 30 meters i.e. 100 feet, a six-lane flyover cannot be built on it. Now a proposal is being sent to make a 45 meter i.e. 150 feet wide road in Lihmaja.

The authority issued its last year’s Where the budget is 5 to 6 times more , On the other hand, such development works worth crores of rupees were also approved for which practical implementation was not possible.

It is necessary to widen it. However, this width will also increase in the proposed Master Plan 2041 of Indore, which will take a lot of time, because at present the draft has not been published. However, its buzz has started in Bhopal. At present, flyovers are being constructed by the authority at four major intersections Khajrana, Lavkush, Bhanwarkua and Footi Kothi and feasibility survey was also conducted for flyovers at a total of 11 places, which also includes Mhow Naka intersection.

The length of this flyover is 578 meters, the length of the via duct is 320 meters, the length of the approach is 258 meters, the width of the carriageway is 11 meters and footpaths will also have to be constructed along with slip roads of 7 and a half meters width on both sides. The consultant appointed by the authority, based on the first level estimation, estimated the construction cost of this flyover at Rs 81 crore 30 lakh, on the basis of which the authority also gave its administrative approval in the last board meeting. The flyovers at the four intersections which are being constructed by the authority are all of six lane width and the roads on which they are being constructed i.e. Khajrana intersection, Bhanwarkua, Footi Kothi and Lavkush are all 200 feet wide.
