The Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) will install new height bars on the entry sides at six points of Maa flyover. The height bars will have the provision for unfixing and re-fixing its horizontal portions as per requirement during the movement of any VVIP’s car.
Currently, the flyover has only one height bar on the entry point of the Garia end up ramp. The authorities have floated tenders to engage an agency for installation of the height bars. The project cost has been pegged at around Rs 10 lakh. The agency that will be selected will need to complete the work within 45 days from the date of the commencement of work.
The new height bars will be of 2.9-meter high. The authorities are also planning to put up a fence on a certain stretch of Maa flyover towards its Park Circus side to prevent kite threads from coming near the flyover.
