PCMC Real Estate: Nashik Phata Flyover Work Starts After 6 Year Delay
NCP chief Sharad Pawar had performed the bhoomi pujan six years ago; project touted as the first multi-layer flyover in the state. Six years after its bhoomi pujan, construction of the Rs 99-crore World Bank-aided Nashik Phata flyover finally got cracking.
District Guardian Minister Ajit Pawar laid the foundation stone of the bridge which will fly over rail, river and road. It is being touted as the first multi-layer flyover in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, S K Lohiya, officer on special duty (OSD), Ministry of Urban Development, said, the Nashik Phata flyover is the first project of the Central Government in the country under the Sustainable Urban Transport Project. “11 cities were selected for the project. While Pimpri-Chinchwad was the last to join the project, it has become the first to implement it,” he said.
