With the start of demolition of Chhatrapati square flyover, Nagpur city is going to lose one of its most used over bridges for 15 years! The flyover is being dismantled to build a new double decker flyover for the ambitious upcoming Nagpur Metro project. The decision to demolish the flyover was taken after the orders passed by the Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (NMRCL). After the permissions from National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), the demolition started on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at around 8:45 am.

The dismantling of the flyover is being done with the help of Metallic Dragons and Metallic Drillers. The process is expected to last for around 7 days. On Tuesday, people from the area gathered around the flyover to see the work being done by the NMRCL. Nagpur Mayor Pravin Datke along with Sandeep Joshi also visited the site. For people’s safety, barricades were placed at a distance from the flyover. Owning to a lot of dust, a dust blowing machine is also being used to avoid any inconvenience to the people nearby and for those who are working.

Quite expectedly, travelers are going to face a lot of inconvenience as Wardha Road is one of the busiest roads in the city.  While this inconvenience is going to last for another week and more so when the work for the new flyover will commence, it’s safe to say as NMRCL puts it in one of their popular slogans: Aaj ka dukh, kal ka sukh!After all, Nagpur Metro project is one of the first steps to make Nagpur a smart city in true sense!
