Union home minister Amit Shah on Monday will inaugurate two flyovers in Ahmedabad along SG Highway—one at Sarkhej-Sanand circle and another at Sindhu Bhavan crossroad, albeit virtually.
The Sindhu Bhavan flyover and the Sarkhej-Sanand circle will greatly benefit from traffic snarls, especially during peak hours. The two flyovers have been constructed at a cost of Rs 71 crore and Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel will also remain present at the inauguration.
The two flyovers have been constructed in the city jointly by the Centre and the state. The flyovers are part of the bigger project to widen a 44-km stretch between Sarkhej-Gandhinagar-Chiloda on National Highway 147.
