The Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) entrusted the responsibility of preparing a detailed project report (DPR) for four flyovers in various parts of Vizag city entailing an investment of ₹1,000 crore. These flyovers with multi-level grade separators would come up at Gajuwaka, Satyam Junction, Hanumanthawaka and Car Shed Junction as about 40 km national highway network from Kurmannapalem to Kommadi is located within the core city. These highway junctions, which are an intersection of the highway and the arterial roads of the city, have been experiencing increased vehicular traffic from all four directions with the development of the city and consequent increase of both public and private vehicles. There has been a more than 400% increase in vehicles in the last 15 years from mere 3 lakh vehicles in 2005 to about 14 lakh vehicles now. These junctions, where the new flyovers are proposed, lead to several major places of the city including the BRTS road in Hanumanthawaka junction, Simhachalam, Srikakulam, Maddilapalem, and beach road on four sides. The city arterial roads, intersecting with the highway at these places, also connect many residential areas. Considering the traffic problems being faced by the public and future growth potential in mind, the corporation has planned to construct flyovers with advanced technology.
