Land acquisition is causing a delay in the construction of the MohaliKharar flyover project. The target for the completion of the project is March 31, 2019. The 368crore project, whose contract was given to Larsen & Toubro Ltd. According to sources, certain structures are yet to be acquired by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) with officials claiming that some landowners were refusing to cooperate and not vacating the structures, even after receiving the payment. An official said while the payment for 244 structures had been deposited with the SDM office, only 8090 owners had claimed it. The construction of the sixlane flyover began on June 9 in 2016 and has since been redesigned as a combination of elevated and surface project after earlier designs were shelved by the NHAI following protests from some area residents. The project includes a 10.185km stretch, including a 3.2km elevated corridor and three vehicular underpasses. A total of 607 structures, including houses and shops, in nine villages located along the BalongiKharar highway, will be bulldozed. Meanwhile, traffic congestion on the road, in the absence of diversion and proper service roads, leads to serpentine traffic queues, causing inconvenience to commuters.
