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.
