Infrastructure Developments in Ahmedabad: Ensuring Safety and Connectivity

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation is testing the Ghodasar flyover’s strength before opening it to the public, benefiting around 250,000 people. The flyover is 707 meters long with two lanes, each 7.5 meters wide. It has a 38-meter post-tension girder over Ghodasar junction. Additionally, there are ascending and descending lanes on both the Cadila and Radhika Bungalows sides.

The AMC finished building the Ghodasar Split Overbridge to ease traffic congestion at Ghodasar Crossroads in the east. It’s set to open soon, following a load-bearing test. This four-lane flyover aims to improve traffic flow for about 250,000 drivers.

Currently, non-destructive tests are underway, and early results look promising. Regarding upcoming infrastructure projects, such as the Dehgam auditorium and the Mumatpura flyover, load tests will be conducted from May 8 to 11 before their public dedication on May 12, as stated by a senior AUDA official.

The Mumatpura flyover, constructed by Ranjit Buildcon at a cost of Rs 78.47 crore, faced a deck collapse prompting an investigation. The inquiry committee, submitting its report on March 8, 2022, blamed Ranjit Buildcon and Multimedia Pvt Ltd for poor construction. Auda recommended suspending Ranjit Buildcon from flyover work on August 5, 2022, and banned them from projects for three years. However, due to lack of alternatives, Auda assigned Ranjit Buildcon the task of completing the flyover on October 21, 2022.
The Mumatpura flyover is part of the SP Ring Road project financed by the Asian Development Bank, totaling about Rs 1,800 crore.
