Srinagar, May 11: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday inaugurated the phase-I of the Jahangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover stretching from Amar Singh College to Barzulla in Srinagar.
The second phase of the flyover, longest in Kashmir spanning a total length of 1.64 kilometres, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
The work on the flyover had started in 2013 with an estimated cost of Rs 369 crore. The then chief minister Omar Abdullah had laid the foundation of the flyover.
The project is being executed by the Jammu and Kashmir Economic Reconstruction Agency (JKERA). Simplex Limited is the project contractor.
The construction work on the flyover was badly hit due to floods in 2014 and an uprising triggered by killing of militant commander Burhan Wani in 2016.
