The deadline for completion of the Kanakadurga flyover has now been extended to February-end as work is still pending.

Collector A. Md. Imtiaz, along with officials of concerned departments, inspected the work on the flyover near the Kanakadurga Temple on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Mr. Imtiaz asked officials of the Revenue Department to finalise proposals within two days for land acquisition for completion of the Gunadala flyover.
