NHAI may reconstruct a part of Hero Chowk flyover again

Gurugram: One and a half years after it was opened for the traffic, the National Highway Authority of India may close a part of Hero Chowk flyover and reconstruct it again.

The decision comes at a time after the part of the flyover has collapsed twice. The decision by the officials as taken at a meeting on July 29.

According to official sources, even though it has not been officially confirmed it has been decided that the part of the flyover will be closed for the traffic and reconstructed.

The NHAI has already directed the public agencies of Gururgam to restrict the plying of heavy vehicles at the busy route.

Despite the directions, most of the commuters are risking their lives and taking the route as it forms a vital link between Delhi, Jaipur and Manesar. A probe is already underway after the portion of the Hero Chowk flyover collapsed on May 8 this year.

Earlier the Gurugram police had registered an FIR against the contractor and certain officials of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in the case of the portion of Hero flyover being caving in.

The case has been registered under the sections of 334 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 34 (common purpose) of the Indian Penal Code.

On May 8 the portion of Hero flyover in Gurgram had collapsed for the second time.

There are claims that how in order to hasten the process of opening the flyover, most of the basic processes of construction were flawed.

Facing flak over the entire incident the public officials have as of now refused to comment on the matter.

The state of art of flyover was completed that was built at an approximate cost of Rs 200 crores.

The construction of the flyover had brought in a lot of laurels for the engineers, contractors and the public officials as it was completed well before its deadline.

The flyover was a plan of revamping the Delhi-Jaipur highway where the NHAI and the Haryana government has invested Rs 1400 crores in recent years to build various flyovers and underpasses along the busy route.
