Bihar's Longest Elevated Road Corridor Opened for Public Movement


The official inauguration of 12.5 km long elevated corridor connecting Digha to AIIMS in Patna took place on Monday. During the event, CM Nitish Kumar said that it is a gift from the newly formed NDA Government to the people of Bihar. The total cost of the project is at around 1289.25 crores.


The six-lane elevated road which is being built along the Digha-Danapur canal, expected to ease the travelling experience for people coming from the Northern areas through JP Setu To AIIMS Hospital without getting stuck in the cobweb of the city jam.


"The flyover will help to ease traffic congestion Patna. It will give direct access to go from North Bihar to South Bihar and vice versa. The elevated road is connected to JP Setu at Digha to AIIMS Patna located on bypass road connecting NH 30 and 31," managing director of Bihar State Road Development Corporation Ltd Sanjay Kumar Agrawal said.


The founding stone for the project was laid by the CM way back in 2013. But the plan was delayed due to the construction of railway over bridge.


Being present in the ceremony, Nitish said, “I am very glad that I have got the opportunity to inaugurate this elevated corridor. It is the first inaugural programme in my new term.”

The CM along with other cabinet ministers extended their support to the officials & engineers who were involved in the program to ensure a smooth flow of traffic lines.
