Jhotwara Elevated road: Affected house owners to be systematically relocated


    Urbanisation has it’s positive marvel but also takes it’s negative toll alongside. With new highways and elevated roads being built, Jaipur is extensively treading on the path of urbanisation and globalisation. This might cause a temporary discomfort to the dwellers of areas where infrastructure upgradation is being undertaken. However, no worries. The State Government has devised a systematic plan to ensure that the affected parties are accommodated causing least discomfort in their lives.

    This is Jhotwara Elevated Road

    If sources are to be believed, the proposed elevated road will have a length of 2.4 kms and width of 11.50 metres at the estimated cost of Rs 166 crore.

    As per recent survey, JDA will require 52,349 square metres of land near the flyover. Currently, JDA only has 28,700 square metres of land,” another JDA official added.

    After-math of Road construction

    For the purpose of construction of proposed elevated road between Panchayat Bhawan at Kalwar Road and Ambabari , JDA had identified nearly 550 structures which will be demolished. However, the real field work commenced on Thursday. JDA initiated physical verification of house owners who will be affected by the construction of these structures.

    Owing to the construction activity, the identified house owners will be relocated and shifted to Niwaru road, thereby ensuring their convenience and safety.

    How affected owners become proactive

    As per sources, Out of all affected owners, 30 % have already constructed their houses on government land. “We have identified 25 bigahs of land at Niwaru road near Express flyover. The land belongs to district administration which has approved to transfer it to JDA. Final decision will be taken in next meeting,” said a JDA official.

    Government accelerating construction activity

    The Government being considerate towards all those affected is leaving no stone unturned to fastrack the construction of houses for earliest accommodation of the concerned. Jaipur development commissioner Vaibhav Galeriya met local MLA Narpat Singh Rajvi to finalise compensation and relocation of the affected house owners to expedite the construction activity.

    Traffic Management on roads

    Owing to an already constructed smaller flyover, there is no land available on either side. Hence, there is no option left to broaden the flyover except an elevated road. The existing elevated road at Jhotwara railway over bridge will be opened for one-way traffic, only after the road is constructed.

    Currently, there is two-way traffic running on the stretch. Traffic on the flyover has shot up after new colonies stemmed up in the vicinity.
