Due to Traffic congestion in Lucknow, Government has planned to construct a flyover from Fun Mall, Gomti Nagar to Khurram Nagar. This will help commuters of Jankipuram, Khurram Nagar, Indra Nagar, Vikas Nagar and Nishatganj to directly come to Gomti Nagar, where maximum offices are situated. Thousands of people travel on this route in a month.Construction of flyover started in 2012 and half of the construction was almost completed but it was totally stopped when defense department did not give green signal to pass the flyover on his land. This case is still pending for last 4 years. The defense department is saying that the land on which the flyover is to be passed belongs to a firing range of army.On the other side, Government officials are saying that there is no firing practice happening on the land for the past 20 years. The defense department is only trying to hinder the process. Whereas Defense Department officials are demanding that they will give the approval if they are allotted with the same amount of land to in cantonment area. Recently a group of commuters with the help of an NGO staged a protest against the halt of the project.
