Travel time between Jaipur and Ajmer is set to significantly decrease in the next five months. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is ready to unveil six new flyovers along the Jaipur-Kishangarh section of National Highway-8. NHAI officials assure that these flyovers will cut down the travel time from Ajmer to Jaipur to less than 2 hours. The decision came after heavy rain caused significant damage to the service roads near the construction sites.
"The construction work for all these eight projects is near completion. We are going to open these flyovers in phases from January. While five flyovers would be open by January, one more would be opened in February. The rest two would get ready by May. Although two more flyovers-one at Bhankrota and the other at Heerapura are in the pipeline, traffic movement on this stretch would become considerably smoother once these eight flyovers open for traffic." Harish Sharma, Regional Officer (Jaipur) and General Manager of NHAI.
NHAI officials have announced the opening schedule for several flyovers. The ones at Bander-Sindhri, Mahla, Sawarda, Bagru, and Narsinghpura are set to open in January. Gadota's flyover will be inaugurated in February, while the Mokahpura and Padasoli flyovers are expected to be ready by May.
"All these projects were planned two years back and the construction work star- ted in January 2023. There had been several hindrances. Even the Jaipur district administration stopped the work for 15 days, citing that major traffic snarls were taking place because of these projects. Without such hindrances we could have readied most of these flyovers by now." said Harish Chandra, The Project Director of NHAI.
