Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta, after an inspection on Saturday, said that pending issues at the construction site of the steel flyover at Shivananda Circle had been resolved.

The 493-metre-long overpass is supported by 16 pillars, of which 15 pillars have already been completed. However, a pillar work had not been completed due to a 700-mm water pipeline that needed to be shifted. Now, the pipeline has been replaced and the pillar work is in progress, said the BBMP in a press release.

The service road under the flyover area where the construction work is completed must be opened to the public, said Mr. Gupta. “The road needs to be repaired on both sides of the flyover. A fter the road is repaired, it will be open to the public in a phased manner without causing any inconvenience to the people,” stated the release.
