The West Bengal state urban development department has decided to build a 6-km-long flyover connecting Posta market to Ultadanga involving ₹1,000 crore. It will bring down travel time between VIP Road and Howrah from almost an hour to barely 15 minutes. TIt will start at Ultadanga and will run over CIT Road, Kankurgachi, Maniktala and Vivekananda Road before terminating at Posta market on Strand Road. An arm is also being planned to branch off at Kankurgachi and head towards Bengal Chemicals off EM Bypass. The project, which would ease traffic flow in north Kolkata, can overcome the challenges by proper planning.KMDA has engaged RITES to prepare a detailed project report.
The state government is also reviving several other flyover proposals, including one on Syed Amir Ali Avenue and Prince Anwar Shah Road. Among the revived projects are flyovers from Park Circus to Gurusaday Datta Road in Ballygunge, Jadavpur police station to Lords Bakery; EM Bypass to New Town, Garia to Jadavpur and Jadavpur to Majerhat.
